How West Ham could line up against Larnaca in Europa Conference League
West Ham lead 1-0 thanks to Antonio’s double in Cyprus, but the 32-year-old Jamaica international picked up a slight calf injury in the second half and didn’t feature in Sunday’s 1-1 Premier League draw with Aston Villa.
Elsewhere, Czech right-back Vladimir Coufal is still suffering with a foot injury and will also miss out on Thursday night.
Speaking on Wednesday, Moyes said: “Coufal still has a problem with the sole of his foot and Antonio has a bit of a calf injury which he picked up in Cyprus last week.”
With the Villa draw only three days old and the first leg against Larnaca garnering a healthy 2-0 aggregate lead for the Hammers, Moyes is expected to rotate his team at the London Stadium tomorrow night.
“We plan to change [the line-up] a little bit, but ultimately we need to be ready for the game,” said Moyes.
“We want to qualify and we never take anything for granted. We don’t want to give the opponent any opportunity to get back in the game.”
Predicted West Ham XI: Areola; Kehrer, Ogbonna, Zouma, Cresswell; Soucek, Lanzini, Rice; Fornals, Scamacca, Benrahma.
