Big clues handed out on Hammers line-up


West Ham’s team for the match at Lincoln City tonight is becoming more and more apparent thanks to the club publishing images from the training ground today on the official website at

Although there has been no press conference for the game the images show 16 of those who appear to be involved as they prepare for tonight’s game.

The only regular first teamers involved are Nayef Aguerd, Tomas Soucek, Edson Alvarez and perhaps Said Benrahma.

Among the youngsters who appear are Dan Chesters and Divin Mubama whilst Ben Johnson is also featured along with Danny Ings.

Among those we have  identified are Lukasz Fabianski, Nayef Aguerd, Mubama, Maxwel Cornet, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Soucek, Alvarez, Oggy, Dan Chesters, Johnson, Pablo Fornals, Ings, Kehrer, Conor Coventry and Benny.

So here is what looks like the starting line up: Fabianski, Kehrer, Mavropanos, Aguerd, Johnson; Soucek, Alvarez, Chesters, Fornals, Cornet, Ings.

Hopefully that will be strong enough to beat an in form League One side.

    “The Hammers were entirely sloppy with their final ball which invariably flew wide or went over the top”… you mean Benrahma?
