Predicted West Ham XI vs Genk: latest team and injury news, lineup

West Ham will be looking to extend their 100% record in the Europa League when they welcome Genk to the London Stadium this evening.

David Moyes’ men have won both their Group H matches by a two-goal margin, keeping a clean sheet in both, and they head into kickoff on the back of an impressively resolute victory over Everton last Sunday.

But with Tottenham Hotspur in town this weekend, the Scotsman could be pondering some changes to his starting XI, but what sort of lineup could we see in east London tonight?

Here’s what Football FanCast are predicting…

There could be as many as six changes from the side that won at Goodison Park five days ago.

The first of which is likely to come between the sticks as 6 foot 5 giant Alphonse Areola, on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, returns to hand veteran goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski a rest.

Hammers full-back duo Aaron Cresswell and Ben Johnson remain from Sunday but Moyes opts for a different central defensive partnership, with £13.5m-ratedmonster” Issa Diop and the vastly-experienced Craig Dawson coming in as they did against Rapid Wien.

They replace Angelo Ogbonna and summer signing Kurt Zouma, whilst Vladimir Coufal is expected to be out through injury.

Another new addition does make the starting XI, however.

Can you name all 10 ex-Hammers? First up... He assisted the first goal at the London Stadium but made only 8 appearances for the Irons, who is he?

Moyes has already confirmed that Nikola Vlasic will be involved, so he could feature on the wing, with Manuel Lanzini and Said Benrahma joining him in attacking midfield.

They’ll be the trio sat in front of industrious England international Declan Rice and club captain Mark Noble, who comes into the side to replace Tomas Soucek, who is rested.

The Czech star is available for selection but he could do with some time off the pitch, as could Michail Antonio, who may settle for a place on the bench with Jarrod Bowen leading the line in his absence.

A big call but one that could be necessary, considering Spurs at the weekend and then a trip to defending champions Manchester City.
