Kurt Zouma has returned to training ahead of the game but will likely still miss out as the Hammers opt against risking the defender.

Alphonse Areola is set to start in goal once again in an otherwise full-strength West Ham team.

Alkmaar, meanwhile, could be missing key forward Vangelis Pavlidis but may have Bruno Martins Indi back fit.
