Time to shine for Hammers B-team

It's another fun night of European footy for the Hammers as Genk arrive hoping to halt Moyes' mens' march. 

The side is pretty predictable apart from the absence of Mark Noble who is still catching up on fitness but does make the bench.

Zouma and Oggy are rested, with Diop and Dawson getting some valuable game time, while up front it'll be interesting to see how Yarmolenko, Vlasic and Lanzini link up with Jarrod Bowen - will it be Bowen or Yarmo or Vlasic that leads the line?

Michail Antonio gets a well deserved night off and is not even on the subs bench.

Tomas Soucek is playing with his latest war wounds, while the indefatiguable Declan Rice partners him in midfield. 

West Ham confirmed starting XI:  Areola, Johnson, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Yarmolenko, Vlasic, Lanzini, Antonio.
