Europa League 16/9/2021 – Dinamo Zagreb v West Ham United

  • Goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic is a doubt through injury having missed out at the weekend, with Danijel Zagorac on standby.
  • With Dino Peric sidelined youngster Josip Sutalo could keep his place at the back ahead of new signing Emir Dilaver.
  • Captain Arijan Ademi made a timely return to action from injury from the bench at the weekend and should be fit to start in the Dinamo engine room.
  • Wing-backs Bartol Franjic and Stefan Ristovski missed the win at the weekend but should return to the side.
  • With a fully fit squad to choose from, David Moyes is likely to rotate having named an unchanged starting XI in the league in each of the opening four matches.
  • New signings Alphonse Areola and Kurt Zouma should come in, while we could also see a full debut back on home soil for Nikola Vlasic.
  • Michail Antonio would likely have been rested but given he is now suspended for the weekend’s match against Manchester United, he may well start once more.

  • Sergio Canales was the WhoScored Man of the Match from the bench at the weekend and should be rewarded with a start against Celtic.
  • Hector Bellerin made his Betis debut in the 2-1 win over Granada but could make way for Martin Montoya on Thursday.

  • The Scottish giants could be missing four players in total with Christopher Jullien, James Forrest and Kyogo Furuhashi also injury concerns.
  • Cameron Carter-Vickers scored on debut for Celtic and could keep his place at the back on Thurday.

  • Ayoze Perez is serving a three-game ban in domestic competition but is available for selection on Thursday.

  • Lorenzo Insigne and Mario Rui have added to Napoli’s injury woes and are both expected to miss out in midweek.
  • Hirving Lozano could get some much needed minutes as a result of Insigne’s absence, but someone is going to have to play out of position to cover Rui at left-back.
  • Piotr Zielinski at least returned from injury in their 2-1 win over Juventus at the weekend.
  • Juan Jesus and Kevin Malcuit are options in defence is fresh legs are required by the away side.

  • Allan McGregor appears to have lost his place in goal in the league and will hope to return between the sticks for Rangers’ Europa League campaign.
  • Borna Barisic now has competition from Calvin Bassey at left-back but the Croatia international’s experience may get the nod here.
  • John Lundstram missed Rangers’ final Europa League qualifier through suspension but is back available here.
  • With Ianis Hagi out with COVID-19, Steven Gerrard finds himself short of options on the right wing against Lyon.
  • Lyon are waiting to find out whether key Brazilian duo Bruno Guimaraes and Lucas Paqueta will be allowed in Scotland after their recent trip to South America. There are also doubts over Tinotenda Kadewere’s availability.
  • Damien Da Silva missed Lyon’s 3-1 win over Strasbourg over the weekend through suspension but is available to face Rangers on Thursday.
  • New signing Jerome Boateng made his debut off the bench at the weekend and could start here. Leo Dubois and Jeff Reine-Adelaide are expected to miss out.
  • Xherdan Shaqiri capped his Lyon debut with an assist at the weekend but the French side will have to manage his game time carefully.

Son Heung-min has not travelled to France for Tottenham’s opening Europa Conference League Group G game against Rennes on Thursday (17:45 BST).

The forward, who missed Spurs’ defeat by Crystal Palace on Saturday, is still recovering from a calf injury sustained while on international duty.

Boss Nuno Espirito Santo also confirmed defender Eric Dier will not feature.

Dier was substituted in the 12th minute after suffering a dead leg during that 3-0 defeat at Selhurst Park.

Nuno says he is unsure whether the pair will be fit for Sunday’s Premier League game against Chelsea.
