Team news: Ajeti and Roberto to make Hammers debuts at Newport

Albian Ajeti

Summer signings Albian Ajeti and Roberto will make their West Ham United debuts in Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup second round clash at Newport County.

Swiss international striker Ajeti, who linked up with Manuel Pellegrini’s men from Basel earlier this month, spearheads an experienced Hammers line-up in South Wales.

He will be joined in attack by Michail Antonio, Robert Snodgrass and fellow summer arrival Pablo Fornals, while Jack Wilshere and Carlos Sanchez complete the midfield.

Spanish stopper Roberto, a free transfer from Espanyol early in the transfer window, is given the nod between the posts.

He will have a defence of Pablo Zabaleta, Fabian Balbiena, Issa Diop and Aaron Cresswell in front of him.
