Hart's form for West Ham has been unconvincing this season so his understudy Adrian is in contention to start against Chelsea on Saturday.

David Moyes has said his preferred way of stopping Eden Hazard in tomorrow's London derby would be to man-mark the Chelsea forward - if only he had the players capable of doing so. From being an nearly untouchable member of the Manchester City and England squads, his erratic worldwide form and the arrival of Pep Guardiola to the Etihad have sparked a chain reaction that has left the 30-year-old facing the prospect of becoming the backup keeper for a bottom-half Premier League outfit for an extended spell.

"By the end of my time we had managed to finish above Liverpool the last two years in a row, but I've got to say from where I have been I want Everton to win and I want Manchester United to win".

"Because we have got a couple of cup games, we have got an incredibly busy period". But we'll have to have a performance similar to get us a result. Who would we play?

The West Ham boss insists the England worldwide is staying at the London Stadium regardless of whether he is first or second-choice goalkeeper in east London.

'There are occasions when I would consider man marking - Hazard is a player who would definitely come into that category, ' Moyes said. "Joe is England's number one and Adrian is a really good goalkeeper here at West Ham so we have good competition".

Hernandez, a £16m signing from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, has scored four times for his new employers so far, but often found himself played out of position by former boss Slaven Bilic. You've heard the saying "if he goes to the toilet, follow him". I don't know if I've got that.

"Looking through the squad we've got at the moment I couldn't really identify anyone who could do that - but tactically it would be a good idea to stop him". "The players who I believe are in form".

"It needs to be people who are athletic and quick".

"They proved that past year and I think they are probably doing that a bit more now as well".
