Despite a lukewarm welcome to the hot-seat, our West Ham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are loving life under David Moyes, as he has continued to rejuvenate the club in recent weeks.
With the upturn in form recently, Moyes will surely be looking to continue this by going one better than last week’s goalless draw by beating Arsenal in the Carabao Cup quarter-final. Although you sense West Ham’s focus would be better suited to Premier League survival, a good run in this cup could go hand in hand with their attempts to climb up the Premier League table.
Moyes will be looking not to upset the apple cart too much by rotating things around, although in order to keep things fresh and to continue to keep the squad on its toes, a sprinkle of freshness in the team could go a long way.
Especially with Wenger’s policy of fielding a reserve side in this competition over the years, Moyes may have no better chance of progressing through to a morale-boosting semi-final than this.
A few changes could help West Ham’s chances, though, and these TWO players should not start as a result – agreed?
