West Ham United will clash heads against Fiorentina at Prague’s Eden Arena this Wednesday night as the two sides look to get the better of each other in the UEFA Europa Conference League final. The Hammers suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of Leicester City recently which has somewhat halted their momentum ahead of this mammoth European clash.
David Moyes will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name his strongest XI for this game. We can once again expect to see Michail Antonio lead the charge for the East London club up top.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Fiorentina
Lukasz Fabianski will feature in between the sticks for the Hammers after conceding a couple of goals in his last outing. Kurt Zouma will resume his defensive partnership with Nayef Aguerd at the heart of West Ham’s backline as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Vladimir Coufal will operate as the right-back while Aaron Cresswell hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them would have to perform their defensive duties well so that they can keep the opposition from creating too many chances from the wide areas.
Angelo Ogbonna will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he provides cover for the defensive positions.
Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek will operate as the holding midfielders as they focus on retaining the ball well at the centre of the park and creating some decent chances in the final third.
The gifted trio of Said Benrahma, Lucas Paqueta and Jarrod Bowen will function just ahead of them as part of Moyes’ attack. Benrahma and Paqueta will have to carry most of the creative workload for the Hammers in the Fiorentina half.
Michail Antonio will spearhead West Ham’s attack on his own up top. He has to figure out a way to threaten the opposition goal this Wednesday night.
