West Ham vs Genk Preview & Tips

West Ham will be aiming to make it three wins from three when they come up against a struggling Genk side in the Europa League on Thursday night in London.

West Ham are top of Group H without conceding a goal after back-to-back 2-0 triumphs over Dinamo Zagreb and Rapid Vienna.

Declan Rice has been on the scoresheet in both of those victories and has been in tremendous form this season – so much so that Man City look to be circling.

Unbeaten in nine of their 11 games in all competitions this season, West Ham bounced back strongly from a shock loss to Brentford by beating Everton 1-0 away last weekend.

David Moyes has tidied up his side’s defence, with West Ham keeping a clean sheet in four of their last five wins.

Meanwhile, Genk are on the other side of the form spectrum and come into this showdown having lost four of their last five matches.

Genk started the Europa League with a 1-0 win over Rapid Vienna (but needed a 92nd minute winner), but then slumped to a disappointing 3-0 loss at home to Zagreb.

Following that result, Genk has gone on to lose 3-2 to Eupen and 2-0 to Charleroi in the Belgian Jupiler League, slipping to sixth on the ladder as a result.

Genk don’t look like turning their form around here either, with the side winless against English sides in any competition.

VERDICT:

West Ham have been excellent this season and are yet to concede a goal in the Europa League this season, while they also produced a shut-out away to Everton in their last outing.

With Genk in poor form with four losses from their last five games, we will be backing the Hammers to maintain their perfect record on Thursday night (Best West Ham win to nil odds $2.37 with bet365.)
