They now face Sevilla in the round of 16 and the Spaniards have a sublime record in the Europa League, having pretty much taken over the competition since 2006.

Meanwhile, the La Liga side have won it six times, three more than top Atletico Madrid.

They last won the tournament in the 2019/20 season and have found a way to master this format.

Julen Lopetegui’s side are currently second in the league and have conceded just 18 goals, the same number as Manchester City and Chelsea.

But, West Ham themselves have had a good season and are currently sixth in the Premier League.

The Hammers have never faced Sevilla in their history and they haven’t gone beyond the knockout stages in Europe since the 1980/81 campaign.

Sevilla v West Ham: team news

The Irons confirmed earlier in the week that Jarrod Bowen had avoided a serious heel injury.

The 25-year-old suffered an impact injury against Liverpool on Saturday and had to be taken out.

However, it’s unclear if he will be available for selection on Thursday.

Declan Rice missed the game at Anfield through illness so it remains to be seen if he has recovered.

Considering Alphonse Areola has started five of the Irons’ six Europa League games, you can probably expect to see him in goal instead of Lukasz Fabianski.

Sevilla will be permanently without Thomas Delaney after his dismissal in the previous round against Dinamo Zagreb.

Diego Carlos is also a doubt after playing no part in the league game against Alaves last Friday.

Lopetegui also has concerns over Manchester United loanee Anthony Martial, Erik Lamela, Suso and Papu Gomez as they haven’t featured against Alaves either.

“But in a way, that’s what we wanted. We wanted to challenge Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and we want to challenge Sevilla, Barcelona, ​​whoever it is.

Manuel Lanzini said: “I have a lot of friends there.

“There are a lot of Argentine players in Sevilla. I played with all of them, and it will be good to see them again.
