West Ham will be unavailable to call on the services of captain Mark Noble and defender Sam Byram this weekend as the Hammers welcome Everton to the London Stadium.

Slaven Bilic’s side have distanced themselves from the relegation zone with a win against Swansea before drawing at Sunderland last weekend.

These results seem even more important now as West Ham will be without skipper Mark Noble and Sam Byram for the visit of Everton as both men are suspended.

Noble will also miss the game against Stoke next week because he picked up his 10th yellow card of the season at the Stadium of Light, meaning that he’ll serve a two match ban.

Hull City v West Ham United - Premier League

The Hammers are likely to suffer from their captain’s absence as he has been a fixture throughout the season making 28 appearances in the Premier League and scoring five goals including important winners against Hull and Burnley during the Christmas period.

Byram will also be absent as he picked up a red card against Sunderland last weekend in the 2-2 draw. 


The Hammers signed the youngster from Leeds in last year’s January transfer window and he’s been the man to fill in when there have been defensive issues, making 10 league appearances this season.

Despite these suspensions, Bilic will be hoping that his side can extend their unbeaten run to three matches in the Premier League.
