West Ham's European journey | Sam Matterface, Kelly Somers, Steve Freeth

It wasn't all that long ago that David Moyes made clear that his priorities were firmly with Premier League survival rather than a run in the Europa Conference League.

At the end of March, West Ham were in the relegation zone, albeit just three points from 12th with games in hand on those around them.

But their Premier League status was beginning to look precarious having failed to generate any momentum throughout the campaign, spending all of one week in the top half of the division.

Fortunately for Hammers fans, their side picked up 10 points from the next five games, including rescuing a point from 2-0 down to Arsenal, going a long way to securing their survival and being able to focus on Europe.

Priorities have seemingly shifted back to Europe now, with West Ham losing four of their last five Premier League games, beating an insipid Manchester United side 1-0.

Despite falling behind in the first leg, West Ham have put themselves in the position of only needing a draw against AZ Alkmaar to reach a first European final since 1976, when Billy Bonds skippered them to the Cup Winners' Cup final.
