West Ham know that a draw away will be enough to secure a place in the Europa Conference League final when they meet AZ Alkmaar.
Leading 2-1 by the second half, the London club fought back from behind to emerge victorious in a relatively even first leg.
With the safety of the Premier League all but certain, David Moyes decided to rest some of his regular sides in the weekend’s defeat by Brentford so that they could concentrate fully on that game.
But the veteran Scotland coach will be wary of a good AZ side who proved their prolific goalscoring skills with a 5-1 Eredivise win between the two games.

If Antonio cannot start, Danny Ings would lead the front row while Gianluca Scamacca is still sidelined. This game could come too soon for right-back Vladimir Coufal, who is set to return from a hamstring injury.
