West Ham United continue their debut campaign in the group stages of a European competition when they welcome Belgian side Genk to the London Stadium, aiming to make it three wins from three.
The Hammers made the perfect response to losing very late on against Brentford before the international break, going to Goodison Park and beating Everton at the weekend with a solitary goal from Angelo Ogbonna. That result moved them to within one point of the top four and they are going even better in the Europa League, sitting top of their group with maximum points and no goals conceded.
On the other hand, Genk’s recent form has been concerning. A 3-0 battering at home to Dinamo Zagreb on matchday two started a run of three consecutive defeats now, and David Moyes’ side will be confident of condemning the Belgian outfit to a fourth here. Defensive woes have been alarming too, Genk have conceded 12 goals in their last five matches.
