GOAL! West Ham 1 – 0 Lyon (Bowen, 52’)⚽️

52 mins: Incredible scenes! Michail Antonio receives a cleared ball and drives it up the pitch for West Ham. He loses it inside the box and asks for a penalty that doesn’t come. The Hammers recover the ball quickly after Anthony Lopes restarts play and Pablo Fornals drives it into the box. He threads the ball into the middle where Jerome Boateng fails to control it. The ball rolls over to the arriving Jarrod Bowen who guides it at goal. Boateng jumps in front of the shot but can only deflect it ove his own goalkeeper to give West Ham the lead!

Second half: West Ham 0 – 0 Lyon

Kick off: West Ham are out early for the second half. They’re down to 10-men now and have a tough 45 minutes ahead of them. They’re a threat on the counter so they’ll defend deep and look to hit Lyon on the break.

Said Benrahma is taken off at the break to bring on defensive reinforcements as Ben Johnson slots into the back line.

Half-time: West Ham 0 – 0 Lyon
