West Ham United will travel to Denmark to take on Silkeborg tonight and hope to get off to a good start to the group stages of the European Conference League.
Given the freedom to invest heavily to bolster West Ham’s squad, David Moyes has the tools to bid for silverware at both the domestic and European level.
David Moyes picked a strong side in West Ham’s Matchday 1 victory over FCSB last week. It’s already clear that the Irons are looking to win the conference
league this season. The all-out Hamers side are far too high quality compared to Silkeborg’s side, where they lost 1-0 to Anderlecht few days ago, and West Ham’s
Premier League quality will be on the rise when they visit Denmark.
West Ham’s next match in the Premier League on Sunday has been saved from a postponement, but all focus will be on that match and Moyes will desperately want to secure a place in the knockout stage as soon as possible. Despite a mixed season so far, West Ham have won four from seven games in all competitions, one of two defeats against Chelsea in controversial circumstances.
Having entered the third tier of European football after losing to Helsinki in a Europa League qualifier earlier in the summer…
Silkeborg have proved that they are not a wimp and if handled lightly they can turn out to be a banana peel, when returned to winning ways and beat Aarhus Gymnastikforening 1-0 moved up to third in the Superliga.
