Silkeborg vs West Ham team news

West Ham will have had a week off come kick-off due to the postponement of Premier League fixtures in the wake of the Queen’s death, so David Moyes could limit the number of changes previously expected.

Moyes has confirmed both Aaron Cresswell and Craig Dawson are in contention to face Silkeborg. The defensive duo have trained after injuries, with Dawson only just returning from a thigh injury by making a late cameo against FCSB. Ben Johnson, meanwhile, is not fit to travel.

Maxwel Cornet is also in contention, although the artificial pitch West Ham are set to play on could complicate matters further. Tomas Soucek is in the squad but would have been a doubt had Sunday’s meeting with Newcastle gone ahead, raising a question as to how likely he is to start.

Silkeborg vs West Ham prediction

West Ham will know they won’t have it all their own way in Denmark, with Silkeborg proving last week they are no whipping boys and the Hammers hardly lighting up east London this season.

But, the gulf in class cannot be ignored and the Hammers, even with significant changes, should run out fairly comfortable winners.

West Ham to win 3-1.
