West Ham boss David Moyes has challenged Adrian to oust Joe Hart and win his place back until the end of the season.

Spanish goalkeeper Adrian is reportedly unhappy at playing second fiddle to Hart again, having reclaimed his spot from the England man earlier this season.

Hart was recalled last month but is ineligible to face parent club Manchester City on Sunday, so Adrian has another chance to impress and possibly deal his team-mate's World Cup hopes a fatal blow.

"I hope Adrian plays so well against Manchester City that he is available for the next one, that's the plan," said Moyes.

"You're never going to play City without your goalkeeper having to play well, so we need a big game from Adrian on Sunday. Then if you get in and you do well..."

Either way West Ham could be looking for two new goalkeepers next season, with Adrian not expected to accept being a back-up and Hart's loan spell coming to an end - with no discussions held about keeping him on.

"There are certainly no talks about whether it's Adrian or Joe Hart or anybody because until we are in a position of safety, we won't be making any decisions like that," added Moyes.

"So no, we've not discussed them."

West Ham are still not safe from relegation but, despite having sealed the title, City showed they are not taking things easy after thumping Swansea 5-0 last weekend.

"I don't know if there is any good time to play Manchester City, the form they are in, the players they have got available and the quality of those players," said Moyes.

"But we have to play them all twice and we will do everything we can to give them a game, to make it as tough as we can. The objective is to try and take all the points."

Hammers skipper Mark Noble is expected to shake off a knock and fellow midfielder Manuel Lanzini could start after recovering from a knee injury.
