Sevilla vs West Ham United is the next first leg match in this year's UEFA Europa League as West Ham's Europa League credentials will face their toughest examination yet as David Moyes' side travel to face Sevilla. The five-time winners of this competition dropped out of the Champions League into the Europa League and advanced beyond Dinamo Zagreb in the knockout playoff round. With the added carrot of a final due to be held at their home ground, Julen Lopetegui's side will hope to progress to the last eight but West Ham will enter the two-legged tie with confidence.

Sevilla vs West Ham United: Match Preview:

West Ham are set to resume their UEFA Europa League campaign on Thursday as they lock horns with Sevilla. It will be a massive test for David Moyes, who has managed to guide the Londoners to a knockout stage of the Europa League for the first time in the club's history.

After finishing sixth in the Premier League last term, West Ham looked imperious in the group stages of the Europa League. They topped Group H, finishing ahead of Dinamo Zagreb, Rapid Wien and Genk, which granted them a direct place in the Round of 16.

However, things are set to become more difficult as they take on a Sevilla team, widely regarded as one of the serial winners of the Europa League. The Spanish outfit have won four of the five previous seasons in which they have participated in the coveted competition, three of which came in back-to-back campaigns from 2014 to 2016.

This time around, Sevilla had to qualify for the Round of 16 through the knockout playoff round after being eliminated from the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. They narrowly beat Dinamo Zagreb in the playoffs, winning 3-2 on aggregate, with on-loan Manchester United forward Anthony Martial scoring one of the goals.

Team News:

Sevilla:

Anthony Martial has missed the last three Sevilla games with a leg injury and could again be absent, while Julen Lopetegui will be without midfielder Thomas Delaney, who is suspended. Suso is a longer-term absentee, while a host of Sevilla players, including central defender Diego Carlos and Erik Lamela, did not feature in the 0-0 draw with Alaves last Friday – some may have been rested with the Europa League tie in mind.

West Ham United:

A scan on the heel injury suffered by Jarrod Bowen during West Ham's defeat to Liverpool revealed no significant damage, but the winger is expected to miss the trip to Seville. Declan Rice could return to captain the side after illness and Alphonse Areola has been David Moyes' favoured goalkeeper in the Europa League this season.
