David Moyes says West Ham will not let up in Europe after making it two wins from two in the Europa League.

The Hammers are top of their group with six points after beating Rapid Vienna 2-0 at the London Stadium thanks to goals from Declan Rice and Said Benrahma.

Moyes made seven changes from the side that beat Leeds in the Premier League at the weekend as he looks to keep his squad fresh, though Rice and Michail Antonio still started here.

The Scot says that despite West Ham’s early and comfortable lead in the group, there will be no taking their foot off the gas as they push for the knockout stages in the New Year.

"I want to try and be in Europe after Christmas by finishing one or two so we want to win the group if we can," said Moyes.

"We are not going to let up, we are enjoying it and won't be letting it go easy but I have to manage Premier League games too.

"We are capable of handling it and the squad we have can handle it too. It will be tough but I hope we can manage it."

On the crowd trouble witnessed during the first half on Thursday night as objects were thrown between both sets of supporters and a number of Vienna fans jumped over barriers after Rice’s opening goal, Moyes added: "Look, we want to be a club playing regularly in Europe and we want to behave correctly.

"I don't know who started it but we don't want that reputation, we want to be seen as a club who can travel to Europe and everybody welcomes us. I was aware of some things being thrown."
