Moyes names strong team for Udinese clash

Hammers boss David Moyes – with five players away on Qatar duty – has named a strong senior starting XI for the team’s fixture at Italian club Udinese Calcio today.

As we revealed earlier neither Cresswell or Zouma are involved and  Maxwel Cornet has again missed out despite believing to be close to a call up.

Łukasz Fabiański starts in goal behind a back four of Czech Republic right-back Vladimír Coufal, Craig Dawson, captain Angelo Ogbonna and fellow Italy international Emerson.

The midfield sees  Flynn Downes teamed with  Tomáš Souček, with  Jarrod Bowen,  Saïd Benrahma and Spain’s Pablo Fornals supporting Gianluca Scamacca, in attack.

The substitutes’ bench will be comprised of a mixture of experienced seniors and young hopefuls, led by Manuel Lanzini,  Ben Johnson, Michail Antonio and 50-cap Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Darren Randolph.

West Ham: Fabiański, Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna ©, Emerson, Downes, Souček, Fornals, Benrahma, Scamacca
Subs: Randolph (GK), Hegyi (GK), Johnson, Scarles, Forbes, Laing, Coventry, Ekwah, Lanzini, F.Potts, Antonio, Swyer

  1. Glad to see Downes get game time and the whole team played well. A little concern over Oggy but let’s hope Aguerd is fit after WC. A worldy from Lanzini and really pleased to see both Scamacca and Antonio on the pitch at the same time. Thanks to C&H tip to watch the game on Youtube. Rice surely will be rested in Saturday’s friendly against Fulham.
