The past three matches have seen the team score 12 goals, showcasing their ability in front of goal which needs to be transferred into this competition, where they have found the back of the net just once.
West Ham United have also won every game they have played since their last Europa League fixture, and there have been some important results in that time for the Hammers.
David Moyes guided his team to a derby victory over Tottenham Hotspur, while they also knocked Manchester City out of the EFL Cup, which was most recently followed up by a 4-1 win against Aston Villa.
