West Ham end their pre-season fixtures with a clash against Atalanta in the Betway Cup on Saturday afternoon at the London Stadium.

The Italian team are preparing for the start of Serie A and a Champions League campaign and will provide David Moyes and his side stiff opposition ahead of the new Premier League season.

The Hammers’ pre-season has gone smoothly so far including a 6-2 win over Celtic and a 1-0 win over newly-promoted Brentford, however, Gian Piero Gasperini’s team are a step up in quality.

Moyes will welcome back Tomas Soucek, Vladimir Coufal and Andriy Yarmolenko from international duty with the trio expected to get their first taste of Hammers game time this pre-season under their belts.

Declan Rice has also reported for West Ham duty, but just five days into his pre-season the England international may not be risked yet.
