Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how West Ham United could line up for Wednesday's Premier League meeting with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

West Ham United are close to a fully-fit squad heading into Wednesday's Premier League meeting with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

The Hammers welcomed Declan Rice back into their starting XI for the weekend draw with Brighton & Hove Albion, and would have been pleased to see the England international come through unscathed.

Whether another start in quick succession is too much for Rice at this stage remains to be seen, but he is expected to be in contention once again as West Ham look to keep their European hopes alive.

Manuel Lanzini and Arthur Masuaku are David Moyes's only doubts, and both will be handed late fitness tests to determine whether they will be available.

The final game of the season on Sunday may be a more realistic target for the duo, but Moyes should still be able to name something close to his strongest possible XI.

Michail Antonio is expected to lead the line once again, having scored 11 goals and created three more in his last 14 Premier League starts away from home.

Indeed, there could only be one change for the Hammers, with Said Benrahma replacing Pablo Fornals in the starting XI having scored his first Premier League goal off the bench to rescue a point for his side last time out.

West Ham United possible starting lineup: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Lingard, Benrahma; Antonio
