West Ham today continue our pre-season schedule with a derby match in Perth when we take on bitter rivals Spurs.
This is the fixture to date that will showcase the work done and required ahead of the season kick off in just over 3 weeks time, when our Hammers face Bournemouth away to commence a fresh Premier League campaign.
Although no major signings have yet to be completed, West Ham are expected to be busy in the market as we look to strengthen, especially following the departure of Declan Rice to Arsenal last week.
The match today against Spurs will mark the last in Australia before we head back to the UK to continue our pre-season work, with a match against Dagenham & Redbridge scheduled for this Saturday.
David Moyes will be eager to end the trip to Perth in style, with a performance to give much-needed encouragement when we face a Spurs side who are adjusting to a new era under Ange Postecoglou.
The former Celtic manager, who joined the North London side only this summer, will face our Hammers in his first game in charge – which many expect will be a feisty affair.
Both managers will be eager to earn the early bragging rights, and there will no doubt be players aching to impress their respective bosses to earn spots in the side for the new season.
West Ham are likely to have Gianluca Scamacca in the starting lineup, with the Italian looking to build on a difficult first season at the club which was blighted by injury.
Jarrod Bowen already looks in fine form, and will be hungry to build on this as the intensity builds ahead of another exciting yet very important year for the club.
Danny Ings, Kurt Zouma, Aaron Cresswell, Łukasz Fabiański, Pablo Fornals and Angelo Ogbonna have all travelled and are likely to feature, along with Academy players Divin Mubama, Levi Laing, Freddie Potts, Kamarai Swyer and George Earthy.
Today’s match kicks off at 11am (UK time) and is available to watch on West Ham TV for a fee of £5
