West Ham produced a master class for the second leg to defeat Lyon’s challenge and reach the Europa League quarter-finals in France on Thursday night – and Demba Ba has responded with a five-word post on Twitter.
After a hard-fought 1-1 draw at the London Stadium last week, which saw West Ham forced to play with 10 men after Aaron Creswell was sent off for much of the game, West Ham won 3-0 in Lyon .
Goals from Craig Dawson, Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen saw West Ham drive to victory in a sad performance from Peter Bosz’s side. So much so that Tottenham loanee Tanguy Ndombele was hooked at half-time.
This takes West Ham to the semi-finals of the Europa League, where they meet surprise contenders Eintracht Frankfurt, who knocked out Barcelona. In the other semi-final, Rangers meet Leipzig.
A surprising array of names in the last four of the competition – which West Ham arguably do with a reputation for winning the entire tournament. Demba Ba reacted to West Ham’s win with a five-word tweet.
Demba Ba on West Ham: Can they win the Europa League trophy?
You must be keen on her. West Ham take on a Frankfurt side who may have beaten Barcelona but are only ninth in the 18-team Bundesliga table. They have only won 10 league games in 29 Bundesliga games.
According to the current status, the favorite for the competition is RB Leipzig, who will fully prevail against the Rangers. But Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side beat Dortmund en route to the last four.
