I can’t see The
risking either Antonio or Ogbonna for this one and Yarmalenko will be missing with a slight cold so this is how I think The
will set us up .
This is the 90th league meeting between the clubs , West Ham winning 30 drawing 21 and losing 38 previously.
The Whippet rapers are yet to win a game this season so , predictably, this week’s opposition is an absolute god send for them.
Personally I’d “rest” both Masuaku and Cresswell for this one , bring the young lad in to play in a 4 man defence enabling an extra bit of creativity in midfield , maybe Play Fornals more centrally and getting Lanzini or Benrahma , and of course Bowen up to support Haller a bit more.
I expect the
to stick to the tried and trusted system though , only seeing Benrahma or Lanzini if and when we go behind.
Am I being overly negative towards this one ?
