West Ham vs Olympiacos preview

Which West Ham will turn up on Thursday?

The side who conquered London rivals Arsenal 3-1 in the Carabao Cup, or the team who squandered a 2-1 lead against Brentford over the weekend?

The Hammers have endured a difficult spell both domestically and on the European stage. They’ve lost four of their last five matches – including a 2-1 defeat to Olympiacos on their last visit.

They remain top of Group A with six points from a possible nine and favourites to qualify for the knockout stages, but things aren’t as straightforward now.

Freiburg also have six points, while Olympiacos have four and victory for the Greek visitors this week would be troublesome for David Moyes’ side.

Olympiacos did end West Ham’s 17-match unbeaten run in Europe but Moyes made seven changes for that contest, and is expected to field his strongest starting XI.

West Ham vs Olympiacos betting tips

James Ward-Prowse to assist at 2/1 with Paddy Power – CLAIM HERE

Goals and assists might have dried up for James Ward-Prowse recently, but he’s still got positive underlying numbers. He’s created 18 chances in the last 522 minutes of action, and more big chances than any of his WestHam colleagues – despite operating in a deeper role.

West Ham fans are crying out for the influential midfielder to be pushed further forward, and they might get their wish this Thursday with David Moyes expected to get back to basics.

Jarrod Bowen to score at 9/5 with Paddy Power – CLAIM HERE

It’s not the most original suggestion, but if West Ham score – Jarrod Bowen will more than likely be involved.

The England international has registered 32 attempts on goal this season, which is more than Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma combined. He’s netted eight goals in 14 appearances this season, and has nine in 23 European games total.

Nayef Aguerd to score anytime at 8/1 with Paddy Power – CLAIM HERE

It’s a bit of a wildcard selection but defender Nayef Aguerd is West Ham’s biggest threat at set-pieces.

The Moroccan, 27, has had eight attempts from set-plays this season (seven headers) which is three more than Kurt Zouma and Tomas Soucek.
