Moyes instead opted for Adrian after the Spaniard shone last weekend in West Ham's 2-1 defeat at Hart's parent club Manchester City, for which Hart was ineligible.

Hart, 30, produced an error-strewn display on his last outing, a 4-0 defeat at Everton, conceding a penalty and being lobbed from 60 yards by Wayne Rooney after fluffing a clearance.

He lost his place at City last season following Pep Guardiola's arrival as manager, spending the campaign on loan at Italian side Torino, and has come under pressure at international level.

Young Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford impressed on his debut in England's recent 0-0 friendly draw with Germany and Stoke City's Jack Butland is another alternative.
