You guessed it – Danny Ings starts

Yes you guessed it – Danny Ings starts and Divin Mubama is on the bench. On top of that, despite hopes, Jarrod Bowen is missing from the game at Burnley. It;s Ings’ first Premier League start of the season anad it comes against his former club Burnley!

As was expected despite David Moyes talking the possibility up, Jarrod Bowen is also unavailable due to injury along with the No 9. Ings inclusion is the one change from the team that beat  Nottingham Forest 3-2 prior to the international break.

Alphonse Areola and captain Kurt Zouma  leads the defensive line which sees Vladimír Coufal, Nayef Aguerd and Emerson Palmieri joining him.

The Hammers midfield unit puts Mexico international Edson Álvarez alongside James Ward-Prowse and Tomáš Souček.

    Why will Moyes not give Mubama a run. Ings has got nothing to give, and if we want to keep the young lad be has to be shown he has a chance of first team football or he will never sign a new contract.

    Started quite well with Soucek supporting Ings. Koudus given no time on the ball. A chance for Mubama?
