With West ham way out front in their Europa Conference group after three straight wins, any decent result tonight essentially nails down a last 16 spot.
With that in mind Moysie has decided to start with an unusual line up where our fringe players get the chance to strut their stuff.
There's no Rice, Zouma, Soucek, Dawson, Antonio or Scamacca, with a back line of Coufal, Oggy, Johnson and Cresswell. Emerson may make it a back five?
In Midfielld its Lanzini, Downes and Pacqueta. Benrahma and Bowen are up front - presumably with Bowen leading the line.
It's a side of ballers but you'd have to feel nervy if Anderkecht can get corners - quite likely given their impressive performance in last week's game.
We can expect an open game and a high scoring encounter!
It's pretty experimental looking but we have plenty of muscle on the bench of it goes wrong.
Let's do this!!!
Starting XI: Areola, Emerson, Cresswell, Ogbonna, Johnson, Coufal, Downes, Lanzini, Bowen, Paqueta, Benrahma
Subs: Randolph (GK), Hegyi (GK), Dawson, Potts, Scarles, Rice, Souček, Forson, Coventry, Fornals, Scamacca
