The Hammers enjoyed a decent start to the campaign themselves, though they are now three games without a win in the league – and a Europa League victory over Dinamo Zagreb also came during that run, so form has far from dropped off entirely.
The third round meeting between the teams will likely see plenty of changes to the weekend line-ups, and the Hammers will be optimistic about gaining a quick measure of revenge.
