West Ham have made seven changes for tonight’s Europa League clash with Rapid Vienna.

Alphonse Areola, Ben Johnson, Craig Dawson, Issa Diop, Mark Noble, Nikola Vlasic and Andriy Yarmolenko all come into the side for their first proper home European contest since 2006.

Aaron Cresswell, Declan Rice, Said Benrahma and Michail Antonio are the only players to keep their places following the 2-1 win at Leeds in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Hammers are without right-back Ryan Fredericks after he suffered a groin problem early on during the Carabao Cup win over Manchester United.

Fredericks has been ruled out of tonight’s game at the London Stadium and is not expected to return until after the international break.

West Ham starting XI: Areola; Johnson, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell; Rice, Noble; Yarmolenko, Vlasic, Benrahma; Antonio

Thursday 8pm, BT Sport

Venue: London Stadium

Referee: Tobias Stieler (GER)

Injured: Fredericks (groin)
