West Ham United will square off against Eintracht Frankfurt at the Deutsche Bank Park on Thursday for the return leg after losing 1-2 in the first leg of the Europa League semifinals.

The Hammers will be coming into the match on the back of a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Arsenal in the Premier League.

Kurt Zouma and Issa Diop come back for the return leg of the semifinals at Deutsche Bank Park. Angelo Ogbonna will also miss out on the clash due to a Ligament injury. The Hammers do not have any other setback heading into an important fixture.

The Scottish tactician David Moyes will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation against Frankfurt gearing up for a comeback to overthrow the German side.

4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup Vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Defence

Alphonse Areola would operate in between the sticks for the away side. The French international hopes to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet.

Craig Dawson would go on to partner with Kurt Zouma to form the heart of the backline. Aaron Cresswell will take the left-back, whereas Ben Johnson will start on the other flank as the right-back. The duo would be expected to stay compact defensively.

Midfield

Tomas Soucek would feature alongside Declan Rice in the holding midfield position, with the both of them being assigned more of a defensive role to shield the back three.

Manuel Lanzini could start in the attacking midfield position looking to create opportunities for the forwards.

Bowen and Fornals will slot in the wide positions to complete the midfield trio. They will be determined to engineer some clear-cut goal scoring chances for the front men.

Attack

Michail Antonio is expected to lead the line for the visitors. The Englishman will hope to make the most of his chances when he faces off against the opposition backline.
