Fixture: West Ham United vs Birmingham City
Competition: FA Cup
Kick-off: 12:30 (UK time)

West Ham United have announced their team and substitutes to play host to Garry Monk's Birmingham City side in an FA Cup third round clash this afternoon.

Manuel Pellegrini will be looking for his side to make progress in the FA Cup as he targets the competition which represents their only realistic chance of silverware this season.




Pellegrini hands an opportunity in goal to Adrian, while at the back he goes with Angelo Ogbonna and Issa Diop as the centre-back pairing.

The West Ham manager selects Declan Rice and Pedro Obiang and boss midfield, while Samir Nasri starts. Xande Silva also plays and will support Marko Arnautovic.

If Pellegrini needs to make changes he can look to his bench, where options available include Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll.
