West Ham: Moyes selects ‘promising’ gem for Anderlecht squad

West Ham: Moyes selects ‘promising’ gem for Anderlecht squad -West Ham News

West Ham United manager David Moyes has selected one previously unseen academy gem for his UEFA Conference League squad against Anderlecht.

The Lowdown: Hammers thrive in Europe…

The Hammers, amid their Premier League woes, have actually been thriving in Europe with two wins from two in Group B against FCSB and Silkeborg.

Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?

West Ham sit top of their group as a result heading into a crunch double-header with Anderlecht over the next seven days.

If Moyes’ side reign victorious in both encounters, home and away, the east Londoners will seal top spot and secure their place in the last 16 of the competition.

West Ham, given their English top flight status and run to the Europa League semi-finals last season, could be billed as one of the favourites to clinch Conference League glory.

The Latest: Moyes selects ‘promising’ unseen West Ham gem…

Speaking to the media, as shared by reporter Jonty Colman, Moyes has also handed a squad opportunity to one of West Ham’s brightest talents.

Sharing what the Scotsman told him ahead of Anderlecht, Colman relays that the Hammers have picked midfielder Oliver Scarles for the travelling squad, a player described by the club’s official account as ‘promising’.

The reporter tweeted:

“David Moyes tells me that Regan Clayton has not travelled with the squad, but 16-year-old Oliver Scarles has.”

The Verdict: Potentially big night…

Depending on whether Moyes does in fact turn to the teenager this evening, it could be a big night for Scarles personally.

His inclusion in the travelling squad at all perhaps signals West Ham’s real faith in the youngster and he could be one to watch.

As per Transfermarkt, Scarles has been impressing for the Irons’ Under-18s, having racked up three assists in three Premier League U18 appearances this season.
