West Ham’s under-21 side headed to Exeter City last night to play in the Checkatrade Trophy.
The team was captained by Reece Oxford, despite some Hammers fans thinking that the 19-year-old might have played tonight.
But there were three regulars who were excluded, sparking speculation that they might be getting a first-team call-up.
Coventry, Diangana and Powell will be aiming to impress if they get on the field against Macclesfield.
We take a look at each player in focus ahead of their potential debuts.
Coventry has progressed significantly in the past few seasons.
Playing as a defensive midfielder, the 18-year-old is a regular in the under-23 side despite his young age.
And the Republic of Ireland youth international will be hoping to make his senior debut tonight.
Diangana is widely regarded as one of the most talented young players on West Ham’s books.
The 20-year-old plays as an attacking midfielder and he possesses a lot of skill.
The next step in his career is to prove himself on the first-team scene and this is an exciting opportunity for the academy product.
Powell is a lively young winger with a bright future ahead of him.
After scoring twice for the youth team this year, he may have caught Pellegrini’s eye.
The 19-year-old is a quick wide player who would love to be given a run out against the Silkmen.
