Most of the new boys are the bench for West Ham as they look to hold serve at home in a London derby against Spurs and new manager Mauricio Pochettino (watch at 10 a.m. ET live and online via Live Extra).
Enner Valencia, Diego Poyet and Mauro Zarate will all wait to hear their names called, as familiar faces like Kevin Nolan and Winston Reid hope to prod the Hammers to an upset.
Pochettino hands the captain’s armband to Younes Kaboul, who will stand behind an attack force that features Christian Eriksen and revitalized Erik Lamela. Plenty of familiar names dot the Starting XI, though Michael Dawson will be on the bench for Spurs.
West Ham United: Adrian, O’Brien, Reid, Collins, Cresswell, Nolan, Noble, Kouyate, Downing, Cole, Vaz Te
Subs: Jaaskelainen, Zarate, Demel, Diame, Poyet, Valencia, Burke
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Rose, Kaboul, Lennon, Adebayor, Lamela, Dier, Naughton, Eriksen, Capoue, Bentaleb
Subs: Friedel, Soldado, Holtby, Townsend, Kane, Dawson, Davies
