Carabao Cup v Manchester City (H)

One of the first tasters of cup glory West Ham fans received this season was when the club reached the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup, before unfortunately losing out to Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in December.

However, after knocking out Manchester United in the third round, West Ham were hesitant of of facing Manchester City in the next stage, who had won the competition in each of the previous four seasons.

But, after a 0-0 draw, thanks to a resilient Hammers defence, the Hammers managed to beat Pep Guardiola’s side¬†on penalties 5-4 to book their place in the last eight.

Premier League v Liverpool (H)

Being in the top four when this fixture came around was incredible enough for the Hammers, who had started the season excellently.

A strong Liverpool side were resurgent in the Premier League, having gone 26 games unbeaten, and were looking to jump up into second themselves.

However, David Moyes and his team had other ideas. The Hammers stunned Liverpool to win 3-2, thanks to an own goal from Alisson, and two more from Fornals and Zouma.

This win took West Ham into third position of the Premier League table, leaving supporters ecstatic by the club’s start to the season.

Europa League v Sevilla (H)

After losing 1-0 away from home in the Europa League round of 16 first leg, West Ham fans needed a big result against the six-time competition winners in the return fixture.

Tomas Soucek and Andriy Yarmolenko took the roof of the London Stadium in one of the most atmospheric games since the club moved there in 2016.

A 2-0 victory secured an emphatic comeback against one of the best sides in the competition, taking them into the Europa League quarter-finals and writing their names into the club’s history books.

Europa League v Lyon (A)

West Ham’s best moment of the 2021/22 season, was their performance away to Lyon in the Europa League quarter-final second leg fixture.

A frustrating 1-1 draw in the first-leg left West Ham with a difficult task, and they traveled to France with the hope of securing a place in a European semi-final for the first time since 1976.
