 Sevilla manager, Julen Lopetegui Names Six West Ham Players Who Sevilla Fear ahead of Europa League Clash

Before tonight’s crucial Europa League match, Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui praised six West Ham players in particular.

The Hammers travel to the London Stadium to face Sevilla in what could be a historic night for the club.

The tie is very finely poised ahead of tonight’s 8pm kick-off in East London, after West Ham lost 1-0 in the first leg in Seville last week.

Tonight, a spot in the Europa League quarter-finals is up for grabs, and both West Ham and Sevilla will be hoping to be drawn.

Julen Lopetegui, the manager of Sevilla, has praised West Ham ahead of tonight’s Europa League match.

If the Hammers’ players are on form tonight, the La Liga side might be in for a tough match. That is something Lopetegui is well aware of.

Tonight, the Hammers will surely travel to Sevilla. And with the London Stadium expected to be packed, there’s no reason why we can’t advance to the competition’s quarter-finals.

Sevilla will put West Ham to the test, but the Spaniards are apprehensive of the Hammers as well.

When speaking to media yesterday, Lopetegui listed six West Ham players who Sevilla are particularly wary of, as reported by Football London:

“I am expecting we will play a team with extraordinary players who will create difficulties for us. They can cause damage in many ways, Benrahma, Vlasic, Antonio, Fornals are really good players. Rice, Lanzini, so many good players. The set pieces are dangerous as well so the most important thing is what we do, our job is the most important.”

The comments of Lopetegui serve as a reminder of how many talented players we have at West Ham.

He didn’t even mention Tomas Soucek, Aaron Cresswell, Kurt Zouma, Ben Johnson, or Jarrod Bowen, who are all inured.

At the London Stadium tonight, the Hammers have more than enough players to cause Sevilla serious problems.

Let’s just keep our fingers crossed that they all turn up.
