David Moyes says this weekend’s visit of Liverpool will not impact his team selection as West Ham look to qualify for the knockout stage of the Europa League.

The Hammers can secure qualification from Group H with a win at Genk tonight and could claim top spot should they win and the other match in the group between Rapid Vienna and Dinamo Zagreb end in a draw.

West Ham have lost two of their three Premier League games which followed European fixtures and host Liverpool at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Moyes, however, will not let that fixture weigh heavily on who he sends out in Belgium.

"I don't think Liverpool will be thinking about West Ham tonight when they play Atletico Madrid," said Moyes.

"So I'm not thinking about Liverpool going into my game tomorrow. I'm preparing my team for this game. We consider things as much as we can.

"It's worked for us in the previous games, mixing around. I'd like to get it done if I can but I'd never take that for granted. Whatever team we put out will give a really tough game in Genk."

West Ham starting XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell; Rice, Noble; Benrahma, Lanzini, Masuaku; Antonio
