West Ham United manager David Moyes has expressed that Mohammed Kudus will start in the first eleven squad since joining the Premier League team.
According to David Moyes, West Ham United need players who can make a difference when called upon and Kudus is one of them close to be named to his starting lineup in the Premier League.
