David Moyes has no fresh injury concerns as West Ham prepare for their first home game of the season, against Leicester tonight.

There were worries that defender Angelo Ogbonna may not be fit to start the Premier League campaign, but he was cleared to start the 4-2 win at Newcastle on the opening day of the season and came through that contest unscathed.

Full-back Arthur Masuaku remains the only doubt and has been featuring for the Under-23s as he works his way back from a knee injury.

"We've got one or two knocks or niggles," said Moyes on Friday.

"We're still trying to get Arthur Masuaku back from a knee problem. Other than that we're pretty much okay."

Said Benrahma scored one goal and laid on another at St James’ Park and Moyes is hoping for more of the same from the playmaker.

"It is really good because we brought him to get assists and goals so it is great he started the season in good form," said Moyes.

"If he keeps at the level he is playing at, we will be happy."

Michail Antonio will start in attack, looking for his 48th Premier League goal, which would take him one ahead of Paolo Di Canio and make him West Ham's record goalscorer in the competition.
