West Ham United kicked off their new era with a 3-0 win over Slovenian side Domzale on Thursday evening, their first game in their new home, the London Stadium.

The Hammers had lost the first leg 2-1 last week, but with strong fan backing at their new home, Slaven Bilic's men coasted to victory in style.

Midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate put West Ham in front with a deft flick from a Sam Byram delivery, before the Senegalese international struck his second after being played in by Andy Carroll.

West Ham then sealed the win as Sofiane Feghouli latched on to a ball from Mark Noble to smash into the net and send into the next round of Europa League qualifiers.

The Hammers will face Romanian side Astra Giurgiu in the next round of the competition, and will be looking for revenge having crashed out against the exact same opponents last season.

For now though, it's a time to celebrate for West Ham, as they broke in the dawn of a new era with a fine win, in front of a bumper 54,000-strong crowd.

After the game, a host of West Ham players took to Twitter to give their views, with goalkeeper Darren Randolph and Reece Oxford reflecting on a great display at their new home.

Captain Mark Noble posted a photo of himself leading the team out, whilst Cheikhou Kouyate was delighted to have scored his first career brace, and become the first goalscorer for the Hammers at the London Stadium.

Michail Antonio, Toni Martinez and goalscorer Sofiane Feghouli also sent messages to fans after an historic night, where West Ham recorded a strong 3-0 victory.
