While there was a risk of an otherwise brilliant season petering out after the Europa League loss to Eintracht Frankfurt, David Moyes’ side could still finish above Manchester United this season and thereby secure a quick return to the competition.
While Moyes is reliant on his former side failing to win against Crystal Palace, West Ham have a job to do.
Three points at the Amex Stadium is their only chance of returning to the Europa League and, given their lack of investment, that would have to be considered a major success.
Proving the last few years are nothing like merely a flash in the pan, it’s another big chance to build, something Moyes has spoken about himself.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.
