Hammers rotate… a bit!

West Ham have rotated somewhat for their clash with Rapid Wien in the Europa League on Thursday.

David Moyes has made a total of seven changes from the win over Leeds at the weekend.

Alphonse Areola replaces Lukasz Fabianski in goal, while three of the four defenders have been rotated; Ben Johnson replaces Vlad Coufal, Craig Dawson replaces Kurt Zouma, and Craig Dawson replaces Angelo Ogbonna. Aaron Cresswell keeps his place.

Mark Noble comes in for Tomas Soucek, taking the captaincy for the Europa clash with the Austrian side.

Andriy Yarmolenko and Nikola Vlasic also come in for Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals respectively, as the Hammers go in search of their second win in the group stages.

Of course, the Irons beat Dinamo Zagreb away from home in the opening game of the group stages and can take firm control of the group with a win here.

  1. Disappointed Lanzini not starting, scored the winner last week and was not used at the weekend. I am not sure what he has to do to get a game anymore but a strange call by Moyes.
