The Europa League group stage reaches the midway point tonight as West Ham United face Genk.

Two victories over Dinamo Zagreb and Rapid Wien have David Moyes’ team top of the group and big favourites to see off their Belgian opponents tonight, which would leave them in a very strong position to reach the knock-out phase.

The boss may then be tempted to put another strong side out to get the job done as quickly as possible, particularly on home soil for this game with the fans hoping to see stories being written at their still-new ground.
