West Ham have been preparing for tonight's Europa League fixture.

West Ham United have been busy training in yesterday's searing July heat ahead of their Europa League qualifying match against Lusitanos.

Led by Slaven Bilic and first team coach Julian Dicks, the players were put through their paces as they prepare for their early season kick-off.

Featuring in the training session were new signings central midfielder Pedro Obiang, who joined from Sampdoria, and full-back Stephen Hendrie, who joined from Scottish side Hamilton.

Neither are in line to start for the club on Thursday evening, with academy manager Terry Westley announced the starting line-up at a press conference, published by the Hammers’ official Twitter account, with the team listed below.

West Ham starting XI to play Lusitanos: Randolph, O’Brien, Tomkins, Burke, Page, Oxford, Amalfitano, Poyet, Jarvis, Sakho, Zarate.

Mauro Zarate has a second chance to impress after falling out of favour under Sam Allardyce last season, and Diego Poyet also goes straight into the side after returning from the under-20 World Cup where he starred for Uruguay.

The most notable name set to appear on the teamsheet in England under-17 star Reece Oxford, just 16, who is in line to make his first start for the Hammers.

Oxford is pictured below in training with young teammates Emmanuel Onariase and Jordan Brown.
