West Ham United will entertain Genk at the London Stadium on Thursday night as they try to pick up maximum points in this UEFA Europa League group stage game. The Hammers managed to grind out a 1-0 win away at Everton last weekend, so they will be eager to keep their winning habit going versus the Belgian club in midweek.

David Moyes could stick with his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make a few changes for this upcoming European showdown at the English capital. Mark Noble, Craig Dawson and Issa Diop will probably play from the start as the West Ham boss might try to freshen up his first team for this game.

Alphonse Areola will feature in goal for the East London giants as Moyes looks to give Łukasz Fabiański a well-deserved rest. Issa Diop could get the nod to start alongside Craig Dawson at the centre of the West Ham backline as they focus on securing a clean sheet versus Genk in midweek.

Ben Johnson is expected to retain his spot at right-back while Aaron Cresswell hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will be given the freedom to express themselves in the Genk half so that they can offer enough support to their teammates up top.

Angelo Ogbonna will be rested on Moyes’ bench as he provides cover for the centre-back positions.

Declan Rice is likely to anchor the midfield along with Mark Noble as they try to give a good account of themselves at the centre of the park. Noble is a slight doubt for this game due to a hip injury, so Moyes will be sweating on his fitness for this midweek European clash.

Pablo Fornals will once again operate as the left-sided winger while Jarrod Bowen hopes to put his pace to good use down the right flank. Said Benrahma will assume his duties as a free-flowing, attacking midfielder as he looks to engineer some clear-cut chances in the final third.

Andriy Yarmolenko and Manuel Lanzini will make up the numbers on the bench as they await their chance to impress in the latter stages of the game if needed.


Michail Antonio will lead the line for the Hammers up top. Moyes cannot afford to rest him, so the English frontman will carry most of West Ham‘s goal-scoring workload in the attacking end of the pitch.
