West Ham have the opportunity to extend their unbeaten streak to four matches as they host Burnley at the London Stadium today.
Having sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax in a deal which represents a significant monetary loss to the Irons, there are concerns that the club will be caught short in terms of striking options. However, the Hammers look set to deploy a wildcard against Burnley.
Irish 18-year-old Ademipo Odubeko looks set to make his Premier League debut against Sean Dyche’s side, although most likely as a substitute. He has been given first team opportunities with the squad, featuring in training, and made his senior West Ham debut against Stockport in the FA Cup last Monday.
The Dubliner could go straight into Moyes’ side as the Hammers look to fill the void left by Haller’s departure to Ajax last week.
GK: Lukasz Fabianski
Amid injury doubts for Fabianski, Randolph is the natural backup, but Fabianski looks to have recovered from his warm-up injury against Everton and could come back in today.
RB: Vladimir Coufal
He has been a mainstay of Moyes’ side and looks to have nailed down the right-back spot as his own.
CB: Angelo Ogbonna
A reliable cool head, he is important both defensively and aerially. He starts.
CB: Craig Dawson
Another experienced head, the on-loan Watford man looks more crucial with every game. He could easily be rotated, but he’s being backed to make the starting XI.
LB: Aaron Cresswell
CDM: Declan Rice
Home-grown hero Rice partners Tomas Soucek superbly – only injury or fitness issues would realistically keep him out.
CDM: Tomas Soucek
West Ham’s top scorer (now that Haller has left) is a major threat from set pieces and is a superb anchor man. He’ll surely start.
LM: Pablo Fornals
CAM: Manuel Lanzini
Having been a vital experienced creative outlet, Lanzini deserves to keep his spot.
RM: Jarrod Bowen
ST: Michail Antonio
Although Odubeko could start, Moyes may cautiously introduce him rather than thrust him into the limelight. Antonio gets the nod, but may not last the full 90.
