Moyes options look nailed on for Burnley

Hammers boss David Moyes looks likely to name the same team as drew at Newcastle when we line up against Burnley on Wednesday night.

The squad came through the clash against Newcastle at St James’ Park with a clean bill of health apart from the usual bumps and bruises allowing Moyes to stick with the team  which has collected four points from the last two games.

It means that despite a late appearance from Mark Noble the midfield of Rice, Faornals, Soucek and Bowen looks all set to continue against Sean Dyche’s outfit.

One source explained to CandH that Noble was given a late run out to give him some minutes as we head into the  final games with match fitness after injury important.

The manager may take a keen look at Lanzini’s form but remains unlikely to recall Anderson and once again it would seem likely that Yarmolenko will be used as an impact sub either for Fornals or Antonio who has been running hinself into the ground since restart.

  1. Can Yarmalenko play on the left at all? Yarma, Soucek, Rice, Bowen Or is he only a cut inside type player?

    • He shouldn’t change the team other than actual weak spots and maybe subs. Haller isn’t likely to feature either way and Anderson needs to sit on the bench for now to get it in his head you have to work to play.

      The performances were crap against Wolves and Tottenham, but considering their form it doesn’t surprise me we lost. Different prospect now. Souček has sent a message to all those other midfielders who aren’t performing and I personally think playing two potential flair players in Lanzini and Anderson isn’t a good idea any way. If Anderson was on full form we wouldn’t want him diving into tackles as I am certain he’s capable of some real brilliance, he just wishes he was on the couch doing it with a playstation control.

  2. Noble no longer has the legs and certainly not the pace for the PL. But our biggest issue is Cresswell. He has never been pacey but he is now even slower and opposition are now targeting him. Why does Moyes not give Johnson a run at LB and Wilshere as an impact sub rather than Noble. We might then just stand a chance for 3 points.

  3. 1. Love Noble all time captain, but his legs are shot, still a hero.
    2. Love yarmelenko as an impact sub, he is very slow but moves his body and legs quick. He is not a traditional winger and never will be.
    3. David Moyes is the most predictable manager ever. Iff course he he is gonna pick the same team iver and over, off course he will make subs after the othwr manager, off course he could have a 10 sub limit and still only use 2 subs and one of those at the 86 minutes. But i still want him to manage us next year, so he can build his squad and we dont have to worry about relegation all season. When we get bought out by a conglomerate with money, ax him

  4. Cresswell played as well as anyone at Newcastle the only time he had a problem was when he was left 2 on 1 with no support
