The Hammers come into this game on the back of two defeats, to Liverpool in the league and Southampton in the FA Cup. The three games before saw one win, over Wolves, and two draws, against Newcastle and Leicester. Sevilla drew their last game 0-0 with Alaves, but beat Real Betis before that. They were also beaten 1-0 by Dinamo Zagreb in their last Europa League game but they had beaten them 3-1 in the first leg so progressed on aggregate. The other of their last five games saw them draw 1-1 with Espanyol.
