Reece Oxford is set to become West Ham's youngest-ever player in Thursday night's Europa League qualifier against FC Lusitans. The 16-year-old, who wasn't even born when new manager Slaven Bilic played for West Ham, will form part of an experimental starting line-up in front of a sell-out crowd at Upton Park against the Andorran minnows.
