West Bromwich Albion 1-3 West Ham: Late goals give Hammers victory

West Ham need to finish in the Premier League’s top seven to qualify for Europe

West Ham are tantalisingly close to a European return after they came from behind to beat relegated West Brom in the Premier League at The Hawthorns.

David Moyes’ side are guaranteed at least seventh place – and a spot in the new Europa Conference League play-off round – unless results go against them significantly on Sunday.

A point at home to Southampton would ensure sixth spot and a place in the Europa League group stage.

But victory did notcome easily for the Hammers, with Declan Rice missing a first-half penalty before Matheus Pereira gave West Brom the lead.

Tomas Soucek levelled before half-time with his 10th goal of the season, but the hosts continued to carry a threat.

Angelo Ogbonna nodded West Ham in front eight minutes from time, though, before Michail Antonio finished the Baggies off at the end.

More to follow.
