Silkeborg 2-3 West Ham: David Moyes' side survive late scare in Denmark to maintain winning start in Conference League as Manuel Lanzini, Gianluca Scamacca and Craig Dawson all net in first half

By Aadam Patel For The Daily Mail

West Ham survived a scare in Denmark as they came back from behind again to make it two wins out of two in the Europa Conference League.

Silkeborg - managed by ex-Aston Villa defender Kent Nielsen - had never won a game in the group stages of a European competition but the home side took a surprise early lead, thanks to a superbly taken goal by Kasper Kusk.

A well worked move down the left flank saw Lukas Engel's cross find Kusk in space and his first-time finish left Alphonse Areola rooted to the spot and nestled into the back of the net.

West Ham's comeback against FCSB last week came with three second-half goals but this time around, three first-half goals in the space of 25 minutes ultimately secured the points for the visitors.

The Danish side's lead lasted just seven minutes after Tobias Salquist was adjudged to have fouled Maxwel Cornet in the box despite minimal contact and the visitors were awarded a penalty, which Manuel Lanzini duly converted past Nicolai Larsen.

And David Moyes' side went ahead shortly after as Cornet fed Gianluca Scamacca and the Italian unleashed an unstoppable strike past Larsen before he could even move.

West Ham were fortunate when Silkeborg had a goal wrongly ruled out after their skipper Nicklas Helenius headed in from a corner but the referee had blown for a free kick on Areola, even though replays showed that the West Ham keeper had run into a Silkeborg player.

If the Europa Conference League had VAR, it would have been two apiece but instead the Hammers doubled their advantage shortly before the break when Craig Dawson - making his first start of the season - bundled in Aaron Cresswell's corner at the near post.

Moyes was unsure whether he would risk either Cresswell or Dawson on the artificial surface, given that both were returning from injury but the pair's combination proved pivotal.

It was Cresswell's 300th West Ham appearance and the fourth European game in succession where West Ham had scored three.

The second half seemed like an exercise in common sense until Soren Tengstedt pulled one back for Silkeborg with 15 minutes to go, after Jarrod Bowen lost possession and Areola could only parry Tonni Adamsen's strike to Tengstedt, who blasted home.

Adamsen's introduction off the bench changed the complexion of the game and he nearly levelled but was denied by a brilliant one-handed save from Areola.

West Ham held on, though another tough test lies in a double header against Anderlecht in October, in a competition where coming second in the group means an extra round to navigate in February before the round of 16.

Gianluca Scamacca extends European scoring streak as West Ham make hard work of beating Silkeborg

Will Magee

Silkeborg 2-3 West Ham

Gianluca Scamacca struck another European goal for West Ham United as they battled their way to a surprisingly nervy Europa Conference League victory over Danish side Silkeborg.

Scamacca, a £30 million summer signing from Sassuolo, has already scored twice in Europe this season and his latest goal, a searing strike from the edge of the penalty box, helped West Ham to their second win in two games in Group B.

The English side were forced to work much harder than expected, though, as they conceded an early goal and then allowed Silkeborg back into the game in the second half. David Moyes and his players next face back-to-back matches against Belgian side Anderlecht, who are widely regarded as their most difficult opponents in the group.

West Ham fell behind unexpectedly in the first half, with Kasper Kusk putting Silkeborg ahead with a fine finish from a low left-wing cross, but the visitors always looked capable of causing problems at the other end of the pitch.

It did not take long for the Premier League team to respond to the opening goal, as Maxwel Cornet went down in the box under a challenge from Tobias Salquist. Manuel Lanzini slipped as he took the resulting penalty, but still generated enough power to beat Silkeborg goalkeeper Nicolai Larsen.

Scamacca soon put West Ham ahead with a thunderous strike. The Italian international latched onto Cornet’s pass and, without hesitation, smashed the ball high into the roof of the net from 20 yards.

On a plastic pitch, West Ham made the most of their aerial power to score the third goal. It came from centre-back Craig Dawson, who used a combination of his head and shoulder to convert Aaron Cresswell’s corner shortly before half-time.

A second-half stroll suddenly became a hard slog for West Ham when Soren Tengstedt finished a rapid counter-attack with a powerful finish beyond Alphonse Areola. The goal came against the run of play but led to an anxious final few minutes, in which West Ham were forced to defend in numbers to preserve their lead.
