While some clubs on the continent view this competition as a hindrance, that has never been the case with West Ham as David Moyes, his players and their supporters dare to dream of European glory.

Ensuring European football for next season by any means necessary is the goal and the Hammers have work to do in the Premier League, but the main focus is on lifting this trophy, West Ham’s chances improving significantly now that Barcelona have now been eliminated.

Given the European credentials of their opponents, West Ham were arguably underdogs to defeat each of Sevilla and Lyon, although they performed like an established continental outfit in each of those ties.

The 3-0 demolition of Lyon in France earlier this month stands out above the rest, a goal glut either side of half time blowing their hosts away and leaving the Premier League outfit being tipped to go all the way.

However, four defeats in seven top-flight fixtures, the latest coming at Chelsea on Sunday, means that the East Londoners head into this contest not necessarily full of confidence.

Boss Oliver Glasner has not had the desired effect in the Bundesliga – Frankfurt currently 12 points adrift of the top five with seven matches remaining – but his players have relished their tag of dark horses in the Europa League.

Although five draws have been recorded along the way, SGE are undefeated in 10 matches in this competition, highlighting the size of the task which awaits West Ham on Thursday.

Frankfurt are no strangers to making visits to London, only losing out to Chelsea in a penalty shootout at Stamford Bridge in the 2018-19 semi-finals before ending 2019 with a 2-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

West Ham’s hopes in this competition have been hit by numerous injuries to their defenders, Issa Diop having recently joined Kurt Zouma and Angelo Ogbonna on the sidelines.

Having witnessed his team almost keep a clean sheet against Chelsea at the weekend, Moyes will likely stick with a back three, Ben Johnson and Aaron Cresswell playing either side of Craig Dawson.

Declan Rice, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio will all be handed recalls, while goalkeeper Alphonse Areola should get the nod between the sticks.

Glasner will make at least two changes to his Frankfurt side with Evan N’Dicka and Kristijan Jakic both serving suspensions.

Djibril Sow is in line to return in the centre of midfield, with Makoto Hasebe most likely to feature in the back three.

Rafael Borre should retain his place in attack, despite his only goal in nine appearances coming in the away leg against Barcelona.

West Ham United possible starting lineup:
Areola; Johnson, Dawson, Cresswell; Coufal, Soucek, Rice, Masuaku; Fornals, Bowen; Antonio

Eintracht Frankfurt possible starting lineup:
Trapp; Tuta, Hinteregger, Hasebe; Knauff, Sow, Rode, Kostic; Kamada, Lindstrom; Borre
