Mubama looks set to lead the Hammers attack

Mikey Antonio suffered a new injury in training which is likely to rule him out for yet another few weeks and with flop Danny Ings now way down the pecking order, the teenage academy prospect  looks set to take a big opportunity.

It is highly improbable that Jarrod Bowen will be risked with important league games ahead and the Hammers may now be keeping Ings on the sidelines to avoid any injury problems ahead of a January change of club.

Nineteen year old Divin  got around half an hour as a second half sub in the last league game against Brighton and Hove Albion but had little chance to make an impact as the visitors dominated towards the end.

A clash against the west country outfit on Sunday looks exactly the type of game for him to show himself off before what promises to be a full house at the London Stadium.

Doubts persist over top man Lucas Paqueta but he is another who in unlikely to appear even if fit as we prepare for an away match against on the 21st of the month.
