West Ham V Backa Topola: Hammers need to field a strong team

West Ham v Backa Topola needs the Hammers to field a strong team on Thursday evening- despite the Serbian outfit being bottomĀ  of Europa League Group A. However, they are now in third place in their domestic league after scoring a thumping a 4-0 win over leaders Partizan Belgrade at the weekend with all the goals coming in the first half. The visitors will also have a lot of pride to play for having managed only one point in the Europa League so far.

The Hammers will also be hoping Olympiakos -in third place with four points – can get something from Freiburg who currently are level with us on nine points at the top so it seems likely that manager David Moyes will be putting out as strong a side as possible whilst keeping an eye on the weekend game against Palace.

There is currently no update on Jarrod Bowen but assuming he is not available this would be my team: Fabianski; Kehrer, Zouma, Mavropanos, Cresswell; Alvarez; Soucek, Paqueta, Fornals, Kudus, Mubama.
