West Ham Vs Lyon Live Score‚ Highlights‚ Lineups and Team News

The West Ham XI is known‚ and it is expected to be announced at about 1 hour and 15 minutes until kickoff. Jarrod Bowen returns to the West Ham squad following his performance in Sevilla's victory. Live scores‚ highlights‚ lineups and team news are being provided by The Sporting News‚ from London Stadium‚ in the 2012 Olympic Park. Read on for the latest updates on the West Ham XI‚ and the team news.

West Ham 1-0 Sevilla

After being defeated by Sevilla in the first leg‚ West Ham will be looking to rebound at the London Stadium tonight. Although they failed to score in that game‚ David Moyes' side carved out several chances and are confident of getting another result. While they were denied by a late penalty‚ Munir almost scored a hat-trick before the game ended in extra time. Sevilla are attempting to play more direct and rely on their attack and are sending on Oliver Torres instead of Rakitic. Both sides have enjoyed large spells of dominance. However‚ the home side have been on top of the game and have come closer to scoring. Bono has made several impressive saves to keep both teams in the game. Martial is a dangerous option for Sevilla and is expected to start in the second half. However‚ Ter Stegen has largely been untested due to an injury. The live broadcast is no longer available. You can also watch the game on TV or streaming. The game is a legal broadcast in the United States‚ but you may need to sign up for a streaming service or authenticate with your cable or satellite provider. You can also watch the game on FuboTV. A live stream link will be provided prior to kickoff. Once the game has started‚ you can also catch all the action on talkSPORT. After the first leg‚ West Ham United will be looking for another win. Sevilla were eliminated from the competition on away goals‚ but the Hammers could still progress if they can turn the momentum in their favor. The Hammers have not reached the last eight of a European competition since 1981. So the support from home fans will be key in making it to the semi-finals. It would be a big shock if West Ham failed to get there. After beating Everton on Sunday‚ West Ham are looking to progress in the Europa League. Despite being behind Tottenham and Arsenal in the Premier League‚ David Moyes is concentrating on his Europa League campaign. In the meantime‚ the Hammers are playing with the reserves. Jarrod Bowen returned to the scoring line against Everton after missing the Sevilla match due to injury. The team is also up against Lyon‚ who finished second in the group and were beaten by Porto in the previous round.

David Moyes' side host Lyon in UEFA Europa League last eight tie

West Ham host Lyon in their UEFA Europa League last eight tie tonight. The Hammers defeated Sevilla 2-1 on aggregate to qualify for the quarter-finals. A win will see West Ham qualify for next season's Champions League. The Hammers have won their last two Europa League fixtures‚ including a 1-0 home victory over Sevilla. They can reach the semi-finals if they reach this stage of the competition. West Ham have been on a high lately and will need to be at their best to overcome Lyon. Aaron Cresswell hit a stunning free-kick against Everton on Wednesday and Jarrod Bowen scored his ninth Premier League goal. West Ham shocked European football by beating Sevilla in the round of 16 and have been unbeaten in four consecutive home games. Lyon‚ meanwhile‚ edged out Angers in a five-goal thriller. England boss Moyes is sweating over Angelo Ogbonna's fitness after a recent injury. Jarrod Bowen‚ who returned to fitness in March‚ will be another forward to be considered for the England squad. Meanwhile‚ Lyon will be waiting to see whether Karl Toko Ekambi is fit to return from his injury. Nevertheless‚ if the Hammers can get past Lyon in this Europa League tie‚ they will be a serious threat. The French side are unbeaten in the Europa League this season and topped Group A‚ as well as completing the round of 16 with a 2-0 win. This season‚ Lyon will look to take a positive result back to France and face Barcelona in the semi-finals. The first leg of this tie is scheduled to take place on 28 April at London Stadium. The second leg is set to take place at the Waldstadion in Paris on May 16. The return leg will be held at the Camp Nou in the summer. West Ham have made two changes from their 1-0 win over Sevilla. Ryan Fredericks will remain at right-back and Vladimir Coufal could make his first appearance of the campaign. West Ham are without a striker but could field Areola‚ Dawson‚ Zouma‚ Cresswell‚ Benrahma‚ and Soucek. Lyon are missing four players for this match including Lenny Pintor and Rayan Cherki. Their striker Maxence Caqueret is out with a knee injury. West Ham's injury list is also lengthy and includes Emerson and Tanguy Ndombele.

Anthony Martial could start for West Ham against Lyon

The agent of Anthony Martial confirmed on Friday that his client wanted to leave the 20-time English champions during the winter transfer window. Other clubs reportedly interested in Martial include Barcelona‚ Everton‚ and Paris Saint-Germain. Lyon is also reportedly considering making a loan move for the midfielder in 2022. The move would essentially see the Frenchman return to his former club on a short-term contract. Despite the injury to West Ham's star‚ he is expected to return to action against Lyon on Thursday. The French club have been without a key player for much of the season‚ and Martial's return to the starting lineup looks a sure thing. West Ham will be without Jarrod Bowen‚ who was signed from Porto in January. But even without Jarrod Bowen‚ Martial could start in the Europa League. After a poor season at Manchester United‚ the Frenchman has been given a chance by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to re-establish himself in the Premier League. After a disappointing season last season‚ Martial's chances of playing regularly for the Hammers are likely to be limited. The Frenchman had a late loan offer from Lyon but turned it down‚ so he'll have to wait and see how things play out for the first time this season. After coming to England from Sevilla‚ Martial has made three league appearances for Manchester United and is also wanted by PSG. PSG are a team that can afford Martial's wages‚ and would be keen to sign him. They are likely to have a need for a wide forward‚ and Martial would be a wise investment. However‚ the player's age‚ experience‚ and quality will determine whether he gets the chance to make his West Ham debut against Lyon.

UEFA Europa League title race looking up for West Ham after 1-0 win over Leeds United

A 1-0 win over Leeds United has moved West Ham into the top four‚ with a four-point cushion over second-placed Leeds. Leeds and West Ham have combined odds of 48%‚ which means they have a better chance of securing top-four finish than the other six teams. However‚ it's important to remember that relegation battles are still gripping‚ and the chances of West Ham lifting the title are still very slim. West Ham have not finished outside of the top 10 this season‚ and on occasion have risen as high as third. Even with only one first-team striker‚ David Moyes' side have made a significant impact this season and look well-placed to qualify for the Champions League. They are also a strong bet for a Europa League spot if they finish sixth in the Premier League and reach the last 16 of the competition. A 1-0 win over Leeds United has boosted West Ham's European hopes. West Ham are now six points behind leaders Manchester United and two points behind Everton‚ who are out of the Champions League and struggling in the Premier League. They have a difficult run-in ahead of them: games against Brighton‚ Newcastle‚ Burnley‚ and Cardiff. However‚ they are still within the top four if they can find a way to win their remaining games. With the win over Leeds United‚ West Ham have moved into the top four and are now only a point behind Liverpool in the UEFA Europa League. The result means West Ham will face Lyon in the quarter-final. The Hammers had to play two games against the club at the back end of last season‚ but they clinched their place with a win. Liverpool and Manchester City are also in the top four and will travel to Leeds United for the UEFA Europa League match. They have three more games to play‚ while West Ham have just one more game to play. With that win‚ they'll be within a point of their rivals. If they keep up their form‚ they can claim a 20th league title.
