David Moyes makes five changes as West Ham face Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League

David Moyes has made five changes as West Ham face Dinamo Zagreb in their opening Europa League game.

There are a couple of full debuts for the Hammers as Lukasz Fabianski stays in goal.

Kurt Zouma comes in for his Irons debut and will play alongside Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop, and Aaron Cresswell.

In midfield, Declan Rice starts alongside Tomas Soucek.

Nikola Vlasic also comes into the side for Said Benrahma and will play alongside Manuel Lanzini and Pablo Fornals.

Moyes had hinted in his press conference that Michail Antonio would start, and the 31-year-old has been trusted to lead the line and continue his fine form.

A few changes for the Irons.

Although Moyes has made five changes, this is still a strong team, and you would think they would be able to give Dinamo a good match.

The bench is also pretty strong, and Said Benrahma, Alex Kral, and Jarrod Bowen are all available should things start to go wrong.

We are excited to see what Zouma and Vlasic can do, and you would hope they turn in strong displays to give Moyes something to think about for Sunday.

Moyes wants to have a good run in the Europa League, and it is clear that he is taking this competition seriously, and we expect the Hammers to do well.

This is arguably one of the toughest games of the group, and we hope the Hammers come away with at least a draw.

They should with the team that Moyes has picked, and we can’t wait for the game to get started.
