Team News

Oxford
West Ham
  • Oxford have a clean bill of health and may go with their strongest XI after demolishing Lincoln City 6-0 away from home at the weekend.
  • Liverpool loanee Ben Woodburn will hope to turn in an eye-catching display, having seen his career drift following early promise.
  • Arthur Masuaku is back from suspension but may skip this match to give Aaron Cresswell another run out after his goal-scoring performance against Manchester United at the weekend.
  • Look for players like Jack Wilshere, Pablo Fornals, Albian Ajeti, Robert Snodgrass, Carlos Sanchez and Fabian Balbuena to get game time on Wednesday.
  • Winston Reid and Michail Antonio are the only players missing for the Premier League outfit.

Prediction

  • Oxford United will be full of confidence after warming up for Wednesday's welcome of West Ham with a 6-0 win away from home in League One.
  • West Ham are also in a good place after beating Manchester United 2-0 at home on Saturday.
  • The Hammers are expected to field a much-changed XI, as they did in the last round of the Carabao Cup, they are favourites here.
  • This is the first competitive meeting between the two sides since West Ham won 1-0 in 2010 courtesy of a late Scott Parker winner.
