West Ham United will clash heads with Viborg at the Viborg Stadium Center on Thursday evening as they look to protect their 3-1 lead from the first leg. The Hammers suffered a 2-0 loss at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend which has drained their confidence ahead of this game.

David Moyes will set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make a few changes to his first team for this game. Gianluca Scamacca will probably get a chance to impress as West Ham’s primary centre-forward.

4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Viborg

Defence

Alphonse Areola will operate in goal for the Hammers after conceding one goal versus Viborg earlier this month.

Ben Johnson will resume his defensive partnership with Kurt Zouma at the heart of West Ham’s defence as they look to keep things solid at the back throughout the 90 minutes.

Harrison Ashby will function at right-back while Aaron Cresswell fills in on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and express themselves on the attacking end of the field.

Angelo Ogbonna will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive positions.

Midfield

Declan Rice and Flynn Downes will operate as the holding midfielders as they look to gain an upper hand over the opposition at the centre of the park. Rice will be expected to dominate the midfield battle and create some decent chances for his teammates in the final third.

The gifted trio of Said Benrahma, Manuel Lanzini and Jarrod Bowen will play in the opponent’s half as part of West Ham’s attack. All three playmakers need to find a way to hit their best form after failing to be productive with their offensive contributions in the Premier League over the past few weeks.

Pablo Fornals will drop to the bench as he awaits his chance to impress in the second half if required.

Attack

Gianluca Scamacca will lead the line for the East London club up top. The Italian striker could get another chance to impress in midweek, so he has to find a way to catch the eye when lacing up to face off against Viborg.

Michail Antonio will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages of the game if Moyes decides to call upon his services.
