West Ham predicted XI vs Bayer Leverkusen - team news with big Kalvin Phillips call to make

West Ham travel to Germany on Thursday night for the first leg of their quarter-final clash with Bayer Leverkusen.

West Ham will continue their quest for another season of European success in the first leg of this week's Europa League quarter-final against Bayer Leverkusen.

The Hammers travel to Germany on Thursday before welcoming Xabi Alonso's rampant Bundesliga outfit to the London Stadium next week. The German side are leading the Bundesliga this season and presents a tricky task for David Moyes and his men.

West Ham aren't helped by the absences of an injured Jarrod Bowen and suspended Edson Alvarez this week, while Kalvin Phillips also hasn’t travelled. Here's how Moyes may line up his West Ham XI on Thursday night with a big decision to be made on Manchester City loan star Kalvin Phillips.
