After a chaotic win in the Black Country, West Ham now head to Bayer Leverkusen to face the Bundesliga’s finest.

David Moyes’ side survived a controversial disallowed goal by Wolves captain Max Kilman to claim victory ahead of Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final first leg.

Xabi Alonso’s unbeaten league leaders won 1-0 at Union Berlin on Saturday, a ninth successive victory stretching their lead over Bayern Munich to 16 points with six games remaining.

The Hammers were thumped 4-0 by Leverkusen at the BayArena in a pre-season friendly, but goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski said: ‘That was good experience because we now know what to expect. 

‘We experienced the Leverkusen conditions, the stadium, the pitch, the atmosphere and the fans. That always helps you prepare for the next time.

‘It’s a great challenge for us. We have to believe — and don’t underestimate our quality either.’
