West Ham United host West Bromwich Albion in an Under-21 clash this evening, with some big names in the respective line-ups.

The Hammers first team drew 0-0 at Manchester United on Saturday, and now some of their young players are looking to make an impression on manager Slaven Bilic tonight.

Teenage midfielder Reece Oxford starts and will captain the side against West Brom, whilst there is also a place in the side for Martin Samuelsen.

The Norwegian forward is currently on loan at League One side Peterborough United, but has been given permission to play tonight as the ex-Manchester City youngster makes his return to the West Ham Under-21 side.

Meanwhile, West Brom hand a start to Costa Rican World Cup star Cristian Gamboa, as well as Arsenal loanee Serge Gnabry out wide.

Yet, the biggest name in the game is by far Saido Berahino. After 20 goals last season, Berahino has been on the fringes of the Baggies side under Tony Pulis.

Tonight, he will be looking to prove his form and fitness to Pulis, as he leads the line against West Ham Under-21's this evening.
