Following their first-half dominance, West Ham were rocked when Roland Sallai prodded an equaliser shortly after the restart.

However, Nayef Aguerd nodded a James Ward-Prowse corner past Noah Atubolu to secure the win.

West Ham, who beat Backa Topola in their opening Europa League game, top Group A with six points.
