West Ham United return to Europa League action on Thursday evening with a wintery trip to the Austrian capital.

Unbeaten and already through to the next round, West Ham can win the group with a victory at The Allianz Stadion and, while Michail Antonio will not be in contention, do have largely a clean bill of health outside of Angelo Ogbonna’s absence.

Moyes has admitted that the fact his side will playing in front of no away fans is a challenge but, frankly, West Ham need a performance here either way. After such a poor outing at Wolves, dusting themselves down and getting their confidence back ahead of the frantic Premier League fixture schedule is of the utmost importance.

Follow all the action LIVE with Jack Rosser reporting from Austria.

That should be that for West Ham. Noble gets his first goal in the Europa League and that should see them finish top of the group.

And that’s half-time. The Hammers are 2-0 up at the break.

Rapid Vienna were growing into the game, two goals in the final five minutes of the half and West Ham have one foot in the last 16.

David Moyes will be delighted with how that half ended.

Mark Noble makes no mistake!

Goalkeeper guesses the right way, but Noble lifts it into the top corner. Brilliant penalty, and West Ham are in complete control now.

PENALTY WEST HAM!

Wow. Penalty for the visitors right on the verge of half-time.

Ball played into Yarmolenko, who tries to turn his man but is brought down. Referee doesn’t hesitate at all.

45 mins: Kitagawa with a loose pass, and West Ham can break. Vlasic cuts inside, tries to clip it out wide to Coufal, but there’s too much on it and it runs out of play.

One minuted added on.

43 mins: As is stands, the Hammers are going straight through to the last 16.

That’s a big blow for Rapid Vienna before half-time, who were holding their own.

GOAL! Rapid Vienna 0-1 West Ham | Andriy Yarmolenko 40′

That’s better from West Ham, and they have the lead!

Vlasic does really well on the left wing to work the space and put the ball in, and Yarmolenko gets up at the far post to loop the header over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.

Yarmolenko is not having a very good evening so far. He’s been told off by Noble for playing too slowly, not bothered tracking his man on two occasions and can’t seem to keep hold of the ball. The only way is up.
