Moyes’ predicted West Ham XI vs Rapid Wien

    West Ham United manager David Moyes can win Group H in the Europa League with a win over Rapid Wien this evening but he will be wary of a hectic fixture list that sees them play three games in the space of seven days.

    After tonight, the Irons head to defending champions Manchester United before finally returning to the London Stadium to host Brighton and Hove Albion, both of which being in the Premier League, where they occupy fourth place.

    Moyes has used this competition to rotate his usual starting XI and tonight should be no different but what sort of lineup could we see in Austria?

    Here’s what Football FanCast are predicting…

    There could be as many as nine changes from the side that was defeated by Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday – their first loss in seven outings.

    Only central defender Craig Dawson, who started in the absence of the injured Angelo Ogbonna, and winger Jarrod Bowen should remain in the lineup.

    It means between the sticks, Paris Saint-Germain shot-stopper Alphonse Areola resumes his duties as the designated ‘cup ‘keeper’, with Lukasz Fabianski remaining in England.

    In the backline, Dawson, who is preferred to the Hammers’ U23 talent that has travelled, will be joined by £13.5m-ratedcolossus” Issa Diop, who has usually partnered the veteran in this competition, replacing Kurt Zouma, with Arthur Masuaku and Vladimir Coufal handing rests to Aaron Cresswell and Ben Johnson.

    There’s no place for usual midfield duo Declan Rice and Thomas Soucek as Moyes opts for his Czech counterpart Alex Kral and club captain Mark Noble to marshall the much-changed defence.

    Further up the pitch, Manuel Lanzini and Nikola Vlasic seem likely to accompany Bowen in the final third, with Andriy Yarmolenko getting a rare chance to start in the absence of Michail Antonio.

    Predicted West Ham XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; Masuaku, Dawson, Diop, Coufal; Kral, Noble; Vlasic, Lanzini, Bowen; Yarmolenko.
