Hammers may face five from 12 decision


West Ham’s bench is likely to look stronger than the team itself on Thursday evening with David Moyes taking few chances against what to most of us are the unknown TSC Backa Topola outfit.

Moyes may face 5 from 12 decision

The club are currently top of the Serbia Super League ahead of Partizan Belgrade in the second spot who have a game in hand.

We looked at a possible line up for the Hammers earlier which left many of the regulars on the side lines and unless things take an unwanted and dramatic turn lets hope they stay there.

But as a reminded the Euro League allows clubs to have 12 players on the bench but only five can be used on three separate occasions.

Key defenders we are likely to se sat watching are Coufal and Zouma with Kehrer and Mavopanos on the pitch.

Midfielders are likely to include Paqueta and Soucek whilst up front Antonio, and probably Mubama, could get on.
