West Ham put on a brilliant away performance as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Europa League. Craig Dawson opened the scoring in the 38th minute before Declan Rice doubled their advantage a minute before the break. Jarrod Bowen sealed the win in the 48th minute to help them book themselves a place in the semi-finals of the Europa League.
West Ham manager David Moyes: “I’m immensely proud of the players and the performance and probably more so, when you look back, of the performance in the second half at the London Stadium last week when we were down to 10 men, which looked a really poor decision. The players stuck at it, never gave up, got a goal in front before we conceded. I don’t think anyone when they were putting questions to me earlier, thought we were going to make it tonight. We have a really great group of lads, I’m lucky. They have been great in the time I have been here and the journey in two years from trying to avoid relegation – and now we are talking about getting to the semi-final of a major European tournament. It is fabulous and we are all going to look forward to it.
“It is huge what we have done in two years. We have not won any trophies yet but we are trying to compete and qualify for European football again if we can. To be getting to these latter stages, we have beaten Seville and Lyon now since getting through the group stages, big clubs that are used to European football. But we go again, you don’t win anything for tonight but it was a big moment for us. Winning 3-0 away from home in Europe – a really good result.”
