Key Hammers travel to Freiburg revealed


By Hughie Southon

David Moyes indeed looks ready to name a far stronger team than the one we sae against TSC in the first Europa Cup clash at the London Stadium.

The manager has made it clear that rotation via the different competitions with which we are involved has been occupying his mind over the past few weeks.

And it has become clear that following their strong Bundesliga start to the season the German outfit will take some handling away with none of our own fans present.

No details have of course leaked on the likely starting line up but the official site at has show pictures of five players who have travelled and significantly Jarrod Bowen and Vladi Coufal are among them.

The other three easily identifiable Hammers are Thilo Kherer, Divin Mubama and Danny Ings which overall gives an indication that Moyes is ready for a tough match against a team which warmed up in this competition with a 3-2 win over Olympiacos and on Sunday a 2-0 victory over Augsburg
