There aren’t many personnel concerns; the only one that West Ham United manager David Moyes has to deal with is a fitness issue out of an otherwise full roster. Gianluca Scamacca will not play because of a knee injury.
Pascal Jansen, the leader of AZ, must select a team from a limited pool of options. Sem Westerveld (knee injury), Bruno Martins Indi (thigh problems), and Dani de Wit (foot injury) are not fit for selection.
