Hammers ready for European tour take off

West Ham players will be back in action training at Rush Green this morning. They will continue to train as normal before boarding their flight to Croatia this afternoon.

The Hammers play Dimamo Zagreb at Stadion Maksimir in the first game of their Europa League group stage with a kick off scheduled at 5.45pm UK time.

David Moyes and a player will host a press conference at 6.30pm UK time from Croatia.

Following the game the players will then jump back on a plane on Thursday night after the game to immediately return to London.

David Moyes is likely to give them Friday off to rest before calling them back to training on Saturday for preparation of the visit of Manchester United at the London Stadium.

With three away games in total during the Europa League group stage it is something the players and staff will need to get used to on Thursdays.
