The Europa Conference League draw takes place today, with West Ham set to discover their opponents in the round of 16.

David Moyes’ side are struggling in the Premier League, languishing in the relegation places down in 18th, with Saturday’s meeting with Nottingham Forest a huge six-pointer.

But the Hammers’ Europa Conference League campaign has been much more positive. England’s only representatives cruised through the group stage, winning all six matches against Belgium’s Anderlecht, Danish side Silkeborg and FCSB of Romania.


Europe’s third-tier competition was first contested last season, when Jose Mourinho’s Roma won the title by beating Feyenoord in the final. Leicester reached the semi-finals, narrowly losing 2-1 to Roma on aggregate.
