West Ham kids set for chances v Spurs


David Moyes looks set to name a similar starting X1 for the match against Spurs in Perth tomorrow following the 6-2 win over Perth Glory in the first tour match Down Under.

It’s always important to beat the north London outfit and he is certainly likely to start the very lively Jarrod Bowen but with the club’s international players unavailable this may be another chance for the kids to show themselves off.

Moyes will presumably want another good look at the likes of Dan Chesters, Freddie Potts, George Earthy and Divin Mubama against Premier League opposition even in an exhibition match,

Spurs are reported ready to hand debuts to new signings with James Maddision, Manor Solomon and Guglielmo Vicario  appearing. The north Londoners have also confirmedg the permanent signings of both Dejan Kulusevski and Pedro Porro.

Ange Postecoglou has included the likes of outcasts Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso in his tour squad, who will be given a chance to impress the new manager – should they wish – in the new 4-3-3 formation the Australian prefers.
