Lyon vs. West Ham live score, updates, highlights from Europa League quarter-final second leg

David Moyes takes his West Ham team into uncharted territory as they face Lyon in the Europa League quarter-final second leg, with the tie poised at 1-1 from the first game.

The Hammers secured an incredible second-leg turnaround in their last-16 tie with Sevilla last month, winning 2-1 on aggregate after an extra-time strike from Andriy Yarmolenko sent them into the last eight for the first time in their history.

West Ham have not played in a European game of this magnitude since their run to the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1981, and Moyes is eyeing an historic night in France.

With a top-four push in the Premier League looking unlikely in the final weeks of the 2021/22 season, lifting the Europa League in May would give Moyes an alternative route into next season’s Champions League.

1 hour 30 mins to kick-off: Defensive dilemmas for David Moyes

The absences of Aaron Cresswell and Kurt Zouma will leave a major hole in West Ham’s defence tonight as David Moyes aim to  plug a gap in his back four.

Zouma’s absence is eased slightly by the return from injury of Issa Diop, as Moyes preferred him to Zouma during the group stages. 

However, a clear replacement at left back is less clear with Cresswell starting seven of the Hammers nine European games this season.

Ben Jonhnson could start as a replacement with Czech Republic international Vladimir Coufal at right back for Moyes.
