David Moyes’ men have made a perfect start to the Conference League group stage, though it hasn’t exactly been routine. The Hammers trailed in both of their contests to FCSB and Silkeborg before bouncing back, so Moyes will certainly know just how unforgiving this competition can be if you let your guard down. Anderlecht are the only other club in Group B to register a win, so this showdown at Lotto Park can certainly be viewed as a proverbial six-pointer in the race for first.
Anderlecht team news
Midfielder Adrien Trebel hasn’t featured since mid-August with a shoulder problem, and he is set to continue his rehabilitation on the sidelines for this match-up. Marco Kana also missed the weekend’s defeat to Charleroi and remains a doubt here. On that loss, Felice Mazzu may be tempted to make a few alterations here to freshen things up, which could see Inter loanee Sebastiano Esposito parachuted into the first team, while former Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara will be itching to get on the team sheet.
West Ham team news
Having signed eight first-team players in the summer, Moyes now has the luxury of rotation, which is something he’s embraced in this competition so far. Alphonse Areola has been his chosen shot-stopper in the Conference League so will come in here for Lukasz Fabianski, while Said Benrahma and Manuel Lanzini were unused substitutes at the weekend, and are both expected to be handed minutes from the off in Brussels. Maxwel Cornet went off injured against Wolves with a calf strain so is likely to sit this one out, joining Nayef Aguerd on the sidelines. Elsewhere, Ben Johnson recently returned to full training but will likely be eased back in, while Jarrod Bowen isn’t expected to participate on Thursday with a finger issue.
