Normally we have a great record against West Ham but I can see Big Sam setting his Hammers up to be physical and try to upset us all game and not let us get into our rhythm.
IF we can get off to a good start, dominate the ball and take the lead within the first 10-15 mins, I think we'll come away with a good 2 nil win but the longer it goes on 0-0, the chance's are we'll end up drawing IMO.
Would like to see Lukaku start tbh, will give us a better target man than Jela upfront, more power and someone up there who the ball will stick to, and obviously his pace on the break along with Mirallas will be the danger for us!.
Wouldn't mind seeing Gibbo being fit and able to make the bench either, or even start possibly but that'll be a long shot but long term for this season, and IF he can stay fit long enough, I think him and Barry will be our CM pairing behind Barkley, allowing McCarthy to take a season settling in at a big club like us and learning along the way from the likes of both Gibbo and Barry. A season learning from them 2 will do him the world of good!.
Really hoping we do em as im going to the game with the missus but sitting in the hammers end, the Bobby Moore stand behind the goals at the opposite end to us lot as the other half is a Hammer for fuck sake!. Haha suppose its my punishment for taking her to the West Brom game a couple of weeks ago or so.
