West Ham United will entertain Sevilla at the London Stadium on Thursday night as they try to overturn their 1-0 deficit from the first leg of the UEFA Europa League last 16 tie. The Hammers managed to get the better of Aston Villa by a 2-1 scoreline last Sunday, so they will fancy their chances of picking up a win in midweek. In contrast, Sevilla were held to a 1-1 draw by Rayo Vallecano last weekend which has halted their momentum a bit ahead of this clash.

Talking Tactics

David Moyes will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could make some changes to his starting XI for this game. The West Ham head coach will probably ask his players to control possession at the centre of the park and fashion a few inviting opportunities in the final third.

Julen Lopetegui will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could instruct his men to sit on their narrow lead well and keep the Hammers at bay during the 90 minutes.

Team News

West Ham United

Michail Antonio is a significant concern ahead of this game in midweek. This match will come too soon for Jarrod Bowen who is still struggling with a heel injury.

Lucas Ocampos is suspended for this contest after he picked up three yellow cards in European football this season. Furthermore, Marcos Acuna is a major doubt for this game in midweek.

Sevilla Predicted XI

Bono; Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Augustinsson; Delaney, Rakitic; Corona, El-Haddadi, Martial; En-Nesryi

Key Men

West Ham United

Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma will be the primary playmakers for the Hammers out on the wide areas. Both of them will be expected to produce a good showing if West Ham are to come out on top later this week.

The home fans would hope that Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek can dictate the flow of the game at the centre of the park so that West Ham can create enough opportunities to secure qualification in midweek.


Anthony Martial and Youssef En-Nesyri will pose a threat on the counter. Hence, Lopetegui might look to use their pace to cause a few problems for the Hammers on the counter.
