Zarate in slight doubt as West Ham look to respect Andorran opponents Lusitans

West Ham United forward Mauro Zarate is a doubt for the return leg of their Europa League qualifier against FC Lusitans.

The Argentine sustained a minor groin injury in Thursday night's 3-0 qualifying first leg win at Upton Park and will be monitored for the return bout which takes place in Andorra la Vella next week. Westley said: "I think it'll be the same squad, barring any injuries. Mauro Zarate got a slight groin and if he isn't fit, we'll bring someone else in.

Hammers possess a three-goal lead from the first leg but the East London club won't be taking anything for granted according to Westley.

"We'll show respect to the Andorran team and also to the opposition. If we can score some goals, keep a clean sheet and get some more minutes out of the senior players again, that's what we're after," he added.
