West Ham United will welcome Olympiacos at the London Stadium this Thursday night as they look to earn a good result at home in the UEFA Europa League. The Hammers suffered a 3-2 loss at the hands of Brentford recently, so they will be eager to get a positive result in Europe this week.
David Moyes will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make some changes to his starting XI for this game. Danny Ings will get the nod to lead the charge for the East London club in the final third.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Olympiacos
Lukasz Fabianski will play in goal for the Hammers as he hopes to earn a clean sheet at the London Stadium in midweek. Konstantinos Mavropanos will function alongside Angelo Ogbonna at the centre of West Ham’s defence as they look to keep the Olympiacos attackers quiet during the game.
Thilo Kehrer will fill in as the left-back while Emerson Palmieri hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will have to pick and choose their moments to join in on the attack.
Aaron Cresswell and Ben Johnson will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Pablo Fornals and Tomas Soucek will operate as the central midfielders as they look to move the ball well at the centre of the park. The gifted trio of Said Benrahma, James Ward-Prowse and Mohammed Kudus will function just ahead of them as part of Moyes’ attack. All three of them need to combine with each other well if West Ham are to secure a convincing win this Thursday night.
Maxwel Cornet will have to be content with a place on the bench as he awaits his opportunity to make an impact in the second half if required.
Danny Ings will lead the line for the Hammers on the attacking end of the field. He will be instructed to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for West Ham up top.
Michail Antonio will be rested on the bench but might come on to influence the game in the final quarter if the Hammers are in need of a goal by then.
