Emmanuel Emenike Set To Make Home Debut For West HamFormer Super Eagles star Emmanuel Emenike has been rewarded for his brace last weekend against Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup, with manager Slaven Bilic handing him his first-ever start in the Premier League.

The Fenerbahce loanee has been included in the starting XI for the Hammers clash against Sunderland at Boleyn Ground on Saturday afternoon, starting from 1345 hours.

The 28-year-old frontman was substituted on in the 73rd minute of West Ham’s 1-0 loss to Southampton on February 6 before playing for 20 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Norwich City a week later.

Still on the team news, Nigeria winger Victor Moses will start today’s game on the bench, while Italy international Angelo Ogbonna starts in defense for the Londoners.
