West Ham United boss David Moyes suggests his side are aiming to win the Europa League.

The Hammers are getting ready for their first game of the group stages, as they take on Dinamo Zagreb.

The Croatian outfit knocked out Tottenham from the same competition last season, and Moyes knows his side will have to be at their best if they are to win the game and go deep in the competition.

Moyes said: "This is new to us. All the things that come with it, we don't really know.

"We have watched Zagreb and we are very much aware of their history. They will come into the game confident. This could be the toughest game, away from home, but we go into it with a fit group of players.

"We're novices in this competition so we're looking forward to seeing how we go. We'd like to still be in Europe after Christmas and New Year. I believe we've got a good enough squad who can challenge and give teams a game. So let's hope we can prove that over these six (group) games."
