West Ham tonight take on Serbian league leaders Backa Topola at the London stadium to kick off our Europa League campaign.
It is the 3rd consecutive season that our Hammers will experience European football in east London, with David Moyes side looking to build on the incredible Europa Conference League trophy success last season.
The match tonight to commence the Group A stage comes at the perfect time, with an opportunity to get back to winning ways, following our first taste of defeat last weekend at the hands of treble winners Manchester City.
Ahead of Liverpool this coming weekend, David Moyes will be hoping for a positive result and performance to give a confidence boost ahead of our clash with Liverpool on Sunday.
Tonight the manager was an all-but full squad to choose from, with only Edson Alvarez missing having picked up a European suspension whilst at his previous club Ajax.
Lucasz Fabianski will be recalled to the side, having been displaced by Areola as the clubs number one goalkeeper this season.
With it being our match to kick off the European campaign, Moyes will want to start well, so a strong lineup is expected, with many wondering if a first start for new signings Mavropanos and Kudus could be on the cards.
Tonights match kicks off at 8pm and is being shown live on TNT Sports 2.
