Team News

Lyon
West Ham
  • First choice goalkeeper Anthony Lopes went off injured at the weekend and must now be considered a major doubt to face West Ham. Julian Pollersbeck is on standby.
  • The entire back four that started against West Ham were rested at the weekend so it's safe to say they will return here.
  • Maxence Caqueret, Rayan Cherki and Sinaly Diomande are all ruled out for the French side.
  • Manuel Lanzini is back from suspension for West Ham ahead of their second leg with Lyon on Thursday, but now the Hammers have lost Aaron Cresswell to a ban.
  • Kurt Zouma limped off in defeat to Brentford at the weekend and an ankle injury rules him out here.
  • Craig Dawson is also struggling with a nose injury but should be okay to start for the Hammers in Lyon.

Prediction

  • The first leg ended 1-1 with West Ham playing the final 45 minutes down to 10 men.
  • Lyon could potentially be without their first-choice goalkeeper on Thursday, while West Ham will more than likely be missing two of their best defenders.
  • Lyon have drawn four of their last five in all competitions, while West Ham have lost five of their last nine.
  • West Ham have lost five in a row away from home, which is not ideal when heading to France.
