Divin Mubama is the burning Burnley question


Divin Mubama is the burning Burnley question

We are all surely entitled to be sick of the international break itself and the lousy news it has brought West Ham United. We know now that we have lost Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen for the game against Burnley at the weekend. The big Turf Moor question is what sort of team will David Moyes put out. Divin Mubama is the burning Burnley issue. Will he be given his chance at last? I fear not and expect David Moyes to start Danny Ings although should the bloke’s miserable form continue we will hopefully see the teenager spring off the bench at some stage. Moyes has other options of course and may push Said Benrahma into the central role or even, if match fit, Mohammed Kudos. But  by giving young Divin a chance the lad may be more encouraged to sign a new deal with the club!

Mubama-David Moyes-West Ham

Divin Mubama is the burning Burnley questionThings look pretty straightforward apart from that with Alphonse Areola in goal behind a defence of Vladimir Coufal, Kurt Zouma, Nayef Aguerd and Emerson with JWP, Tomas Soucek, Lucas Paqueta and with hopefully Kudus and Mubama up front although as said earlier I fear it will be Ings who gets the shout with Benrahma invoved somewhere or other. This is Mubama’s time though and it gives the club a chance to kill the contract issue stone dead should the manager showing his faith in him which would hopefully have him believing he has a West Ham future after all.
