On Thursday, West Ham United will face Anderlecht at the London Stadium in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
The two teams will face off for the second time in a week, with the Hammers winning 1-0 on the road in Brussels last week. Gianluca Scamacca, who came off the bench in the second half, scored the game’s lone goal.
On Sunday, West Ham defeated neighbourhood rival Fulham by a score of 3-1 to keep their winning streak in the Premier League alive. Scamacca has scored in three straight games and will try to score again in this home game.
Anderlecht defeated Mechelen on the road, 3-1, to get back on the winning track. Anderlecht’s setback last week was their first in the Conference League, so that they will be hoping for a win here.

Angelo Ogbonna will continue to play in Europe, Flynn Downes will be given another chance in midfield, and Michail Antonio will lead the line.
Maxwel Cornet is anticipated to miss the game with a calf injury, although Jarrod Bowen may be given a break, which could result in Pablo Fornals filling in for him in the final third.
Mario Stroeykens, a teenager, has increased his chances of being selected after scoring twice against Mechelens as a half-time substitute.
If Mazzu chooses to give another of his prospects a chance, Kristian Arnstad can lose out in the final third.

West Ham United 2-0 Anderlecht
West Ham has won three straight games after experiencing a recent boost in performance.
They are the favourites to win because they are unbeaten in their last four home games. They have been in solid form in the Conference League, so it isn’t very likely they will lose.
Anderlecht has just scored one goal in the competition, and this goal drought may be their undoing in this match. In their last four away games, they have only managed one victory. With that in mind, the Hammers ought to easily win this match.
