West Ham v Chelsea team news: England goalkeeper Joe Hart left out of Hammers' starting line-up

England goalkeeper Joe Hart has been dropped for West Ham’s Premier League clash with Chelsea.

Hammers manager David Moyes has opted to stick with Spanish keeper Adrian, who impressed when Hart was ineligible to face his parent club Manchester City last weekend.

Hart was named among the substitutes having paid the price for his unconvincing form this season.

The 30-year-old has conceded 30 goals in 14 Premier League matches, with his last appearance the 4-0 defeat at Everton during which Wayne Rooney beat him with a shot from inside his own half.

Losing his club place is likely to put Hart’s position as England’s first-choice keeper in jeopardy ahead of next year’s World Cup.

West Ham have made three changes in total to their team to face Chelsea.

Winston Reid replaces Declan Rice, Mark Noble is in for the injured Cheikhou Kouyate, while Marko Arnautovic has got the nod to start ahead of Edimilson Fernandes.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have made just one change to the side which drew with Atletico Madrid in midweek.

Marcos Alonso starts for the champions, with Victor Moses dropping to the bench.

TEAMS: 
West Ham: Adrian, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Zabaleta, Lanzini, Noble, Obiang, Masuaku, Arnautovic, Antonio. Subs: Carroll, Sakho, Hernandez, Ayew, Hart, Fernandes, Rice.
Chelsea: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill, Zappacosta, Fabregas, Kante, Bakayoko, Alonso, Hazard, Morata. Subs: Caballero, Rudiger, Pedro, Moses, Willian, Batshuayi, Ampadu.
