Perfect chance for revenge?
West Ham will be hoping they can progress to the group stage of the Europa League by beating FC Astra over two legs in the play-off stage of the competition tonight. The Irons went out to the Romanian side a stage earlier last season, against the odds.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is taking the competition very seriously this year, despite conceding that a long run in Europe can have an adverse effect on Premier League form.
West Ham will be without 6 first team players tonight, after record signing Andre Ayew left the field with a thigh injury against Chelsea. The player will be out for around 4 months. Others missing include Sofiane Feghouli, Aaron Cresswell and Manuel Lanzini who are injured, as well as Arthur Masuaku who is cup tied, and Dimitri Payet who is resting following a busy Summer at the Euros.
Probable line-up: Randolph, Ogbonna, Reid, Collins, Byram, Nordtveit, Noble, Kouyate, Antonio, Valencia, Carroll

Come on you Irons!
