Moyes selects strong team for Fulham clash

David Moyes has named a strong team for the match at Fulham which kicks off at 1]m today.

However, the bench is crammed with youngsters as we play our final friendly ahead of the Premier League game on Boxing Day.

Ogbonna skippers the team and partners Craig Dawson at central defence with thankfully  Vladimir Coufal at right back and Emerson alongside the duo at full-back.

Łukasz Fabiański is in goal, while Tomáš Souček and Manuel Lanzini anchor the midfield.

Jarrod Bowen – who scored in our 3-1 Premier League win over the Cottagers in October – will support another goal scorer from that game, Gianluca Scamacca, in attack, alongside Pablo Fornals and Saïd Benrahma.

This will probably turn out to be our toughest test of the three winter break games.

West Ham United: Fabiański, Coufal, Ogbonna ©, Dawson, Emerson, Lanzini, Souček, Bowen, Fornals, Benrahma, Scamacca
Subs: Randolph (GK), Hegyi (GK), Johnson, Ashby, Laing, Forbes, Potts, Swyer, Downes, Coventry, Ekwah, Mumama
