Oliver Glasner remained loyal to the side that secured a lead in the first leg despite both Evan N’Dicka and Kristijan Jakic being available again from suspension. Djibril Sow, Daichi Kamada, Almamy Toure and Rafael Borre didn’t start the weekend loss to Bayer Leverkusen and could return.
West Ham were bolstered by Issa Diop’s return to the bench in the Arsenal defeat but the Frenchman is unlikely to start with Craig Dawson suspended for this league game. Tomas Soucek and Michail Antonio started the defeat on the bench; both should start for David Moyes, who could also consider signing Vladimir Coufal at right-back.
Eintracht Frankfurt: Trapp; N’Dicka, Tuta, Hinteregger; Knauff, Jakic, Sow, Kostic; Kamada, Hrustish; bore
western ham: areola; Coufal, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell; soucek, rice; Bowen, Lanzini, Fornals; Antonio
