WEST HAM ON EUROPA LEAGUE MISSION

West Ham are looking to progress to the Europa League semi-finals by beating Lyon on Thursday.

After a 1-1 draw in the first leg in London there is all to play for in France. Jarrod Bowen scored the Hammers’ goal while former Spurs player Tanguy Ndombele got the goal for Lyon.

Remember the away goals rule is not in play in the Europa League this year with the winner of the encounter guaranteed a spot in the last four.

David Moyes’ men lost to Brentford over the weekend and battled with only 10 men for a large portion of the encounter, but will be confident heading into the clash with Lyon. The French team had domestic issues of their own over the weekend only managing a 1-1 draw with Strasbourg.

West Ham will need to improve on there away form where they are on a three game losing streak away from London in the Europa League.
