How to watch Lyon vs West Ham: The Europa League tie is on a knife edge. Can The Hammers reach the semi-finals? Here’s how to watch Lyon vs West Ham live
After a week of Champions League drama involving three English clubs, West Ham are looking to make a European semi-final of their own.
The Europa League quarter-final is currently level after the first leg in London, giving the French side Lyon a slight edge on home turf. The draw last week ended up being a good result overall, following Aaron Cresswell’s early dismissal, so David Moyes side will be confident they can make a little noise on French soil tonight.
West Ham will be without influential centre half Kurt Zouma, following an injury at the weekend, but will be hoping England star Declan Rice can drive the club into a semi-final, where the might of Barcelona could possibly await.
The Hammers may have dropped out of contention for a top four spot in the Premier League this year, but success in the Europa League would guarantee the Eastenders a first ever appearance in the Champions League next season.
