David Moyes has named his starting XI for tonight’s Carabao Cup match with Arsenal and Domingos Quina is handed his first senior start.
The Portuguese youngster makes his first team starting appearance in tonight’s quarter final at the Emirates Stadium in one of six changes to the starting XI from the 3-0 win at Stoke City on Saturday.
Joe Hart, as confirmed by Moyes in his press conference on Monday, is named in goal, replacing Adrian who drops to the bench.
Winston Reid is also back in the team, having served a one-match suspension, and will captain the side in Mark Noble’s absence.
Angelo Ogbonna, James Collins and Aaron Cresswell all retain their places as well, as does Arthur Masuaku, while Declan Rice comes into the team. Pablo Zabaleta drops to the bench.
Pedro Obiang keeps his role in the team and is likely to play alongside the debuting Quina in midfield.
In attack Andre Ayew and Chicharito are both named in the starting XI, with the Mexican making his first start for West Ham United under Moyes.
There is an abundance of attacking talent available to the Hammers on the bench with the likes of Andy Carroll, Marko Arnautovic, Diafra Sakho, and youngsters Sead Haksabanovic and Moses Makasi in the seven.
