All change Hammers as Euro approaches


David Moyes has been considering his options for a busy September over the last few days and as we move towards the match against TSC it is interesting to consider what sort of Hammers team we will see taking the pitch for our first Europa League match on Thursday evening.

The Serbian outfit are no mugs although they have been beaten twice by Braga in their first nine games although they have won six and drawn one besides that.

The Hammers of course have made a flying start, beaten for the first time today by the League leaders and treble winners Manchester City.

But it is unlikely many of those we have in action so far this term will be appearing in the team the manager selects for the match against a team who, let’s be honest, we will be expected to beat.

We expect the team to look something like this: Fabianski, Kehrer, Ogbonna, Mavropanos, Cresswell, Soucek, Kudus, Cornet, Fornals, Bowen, Ings.
