Paqueta makes the bench

Lucas Paqueta is on the bench for West Ham against Spurs tonight.

The Brazilian was signed in a club record deal earlier this week and has received the clearance needed to play.

His fitness means that he only make the bench but he could well make his Irons debut this evening against Antonio Conte’s side.

Elsewhere, Thilo Kehrer plays at centre back, with summer signings Emerson and Maxwel Cornet both on the bench. Gianluca Scamacca is not in the squad.

Lukasz Fabianski starts in goal: Vlad Coufal, Kehrer, Kurt Zouma and Aaron Cresswell play in defence; Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek are partnered in midfield and Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma provide support to Mikey Antonio.

  1. Any news on Scamacca absence?

  2. Does anyone believe Moyes will make effective use of the new players. For 2 years I have questioned his man management, tactics, development of players, obsession with one striker, loyalty to players whose form has been mediocre at best, dislike of skilful players who don’t conform etc. He will only introduce new players when we are in dire straits and then say I told you so when they struggle. Would you join West Ham with him as manager?

  3. 2 goalkeepers.
    Surely a youngster around?
    Are we expecting Fabianski to be sent off ?
    I’ll ask you again Hugh.
    Where is Ashby ?

  4. What the heck does that mean.
    It’s a question about a player who played brilliant and then has gone of the scene.missing.
