Sam Allardyce will field his strongest possible line-up against FC Copenhagen in Denmark tonight.
The Hammers boss is set to employ his favoured 4-5-1 formation as his West Ham side take on the Champions League qualifiers in their home venue, the Parken stadium.
With Carlton Cole not involved having been left at home in the UK, the lone striker role is set to fall to Freddie Piquionne who will spearhead a five man midfield.
Meanwhile Copenhagen have confirmed their 22-man squad squad as follows:
1. Kim Christensen; 3. Pierre Bengtsson; 6. Claudemir; 7. Martin Bergvold; 8. Christian Grindheim; 9. Morten Nordstrand; 11. Cesar Santin; 13. Pape Pate Diouf; 14. Dame NDoye; 15. Johnny Thomsen; 16. Thomas Kristensen; 17. Ragnar Sihurdsson; 18. Kenneth Zohore; 19. Bryan Oviedo; 21. Johan Wiland; 22. Johan Absalonsen; 24. Youssef Toutouh; 25. Mathias Zanka; 27. Thomas Delaney; 28. Saban Özdogan; 30. Christian Bolaños; Lasse Lindbjerg.
West Ham - who will NOT be wearing squad numbers tonight - will confirm their starting XI around 6:00pm GMT. The game, which is being broadcast live by the club on West Ham TV kicks off at 7:00pm GMT.
