The Europa League and Europa Conference League return tonight after two thrilling days of Champions League football.

West Ham, Leicester and Tottenham are all in action as the group stage reaches the business end.

European action continues

West Ham travel to Rapid Wien knowing that a fourth victory in this season’s tournament will confirm their spot at the top of Group H.

Angelo Ogbonna had been a mainstay in the Hammers’ Premier League defence until he suffered a season-ending injury but he was yet to feature in Europe.

The teams David Moyes has put out on Thursday nights can give a clue as to how they can cope without the Italian.

To do that, the Foxes need to improve on recent performances including the 3-0 defeat at home to Chelsea last Saturday.

Dennis the Menace

Watford winger Emmanuel Dennis is no longer flying under the radar at Vicarage Road.

Signed from Club Brugge in the summer, the Nigerian scored on his debut against Aston Villa and notched his fourth of the campaign against Manchester United.
