Moyes leaves Ings on the bench

May be an image of 1 person

Despite rushing to get him registered in time for the match new signing Danny Ings will not be starting for the Irons against Everton

Instead Moyes has opted for a thus far totally out of form Antonio to begin the game up front with the 30 year old former Villa player warming his bottom on the bench.

The manager has made three changes with Kurt Zouma taking his place at central defence and the thus  unimpressive Emerson starting along – thankfully – with Said Benrahma

Aaron Cresswell, who made his 315th Club appearance at Molineux, Tomáš Souček and Pablo Fornals make way for the recalled trio.

Benrahma and Zouma celebrate

 As the Hammers seek their second win of 2023 but first in eight matches in the Premier League, Nayef Aguerd continues his run of appearances at the back. Joined by Zouma, vice-skipper Angelo Ogbonna, Vladimír Coufal and Emerson, the Morocco international is set to make his first home Premier League start in front of the ever-present Łukasz Fabiański.

The former Poland stopper will make his 160th appearance and could secure a 40th clean sheet for the Club today.

  1. Might as well cut his own throat. David Moyes suicide. Antonio has blown a chance already Ings would have scored. Pathetic.

  2. We won. Trouble was that Everton were that bad, how can we be sure that they did an awful lot.
