In preparation for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup third-round match at Lincoln City, Divin Mubama, Conor Coventry, and Dan Chesters have all been spotted working out with West Ham United.

The resumption of Europa League matches at the London Stadium and David Moyes’ team’s domestic cup matchups against teams from the third division should provide plenty of opportunity for West Ham United’s younger players in the coming weeks.

And Moyes may relish the opportunity to shuffle his pack; Mubama, Chesters and one-time Imps loanee Conor Coventry photographed in training with the likes of Edson Alvarez and Tomas Soucek via the West Ham website.

West Ham United take on Lincoln City

18-year-old Mubama, the youngest of the three, scored 13 goals in 20 Premier League 2 games last season. Now a regular in Moyes’ matchday squads, the teenage striker caught the eye during pre-season too and may be afforded the opportunity to lead the line in Lincoln.

After Mubama scored his first professional goal in the Conference League against AEK Larnaca in the spring, Moyes told Football London, “There’s nothing more that gives you pleasure than getting young players an opportunity.”

I describe Divin’s actions every time he appears on television. He works hard and runs without pausing to consider his actions or effort. We’re becoming more accustomed to him as a result.

I’m happy since he did so well.

At least two teenagers play for the Hammers.
A 21-year-old midfielder named Dan Chesters has also played for Moyes in Europe. If Coventry is given the opportunity to play in the Carabao Cup third round, he will be looking to demonstrate how much he has improved since his time on loan at Lincoln back in 2019–20. The previous season, Coventry participated five times as West Ham won the Conference League.

According to The Standard, defender Kaelen Casey (18) and goalie Jacob Knightsbridge (19) have also made the trip to Lincolnshire.
