West Ham earned their third straight Europa Conference League victory with a goal from substitute Gianluca Scamacca against Anderlecht.
Late in the second half, Scamacca guided it into the bottom corner with a first-time strike on the turn.
Soon after, West Ham goalkeeper Alphonse Areola was forced to make an excellent save to stop Anderlecht striker Fabio Silva’s header.
Anderlecht is five points behind the Hammers in Group B.
At Lotto Park in Brussels, David Moyes’ side dominated possession and created numerous chances.
There were nine changes from the team that defeated Wolves in the Premier League last time out, with Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma among those given starts.
In the first half, Benrahma had a shot blocked before being set up by Jarrod Bowen, only to slice it over the bar from close range with the goal gaping.
Antonio and Bowen also had chances, while on-loan Wolves striker Silva had an effort in the box blocked by Anderlecht teammate Francis Amuzu.
Areola was called into action to deny Yari Verschaeren from long range, but he was otherwise untested until he made that fantastic save to deny Silva.
Moyes made three substitutions with about 20 minutes remaining as West Ham sought a winner: captain Declan Rice, midfielder Lucas Paqueta, and striker Scamacca.
All three players were involved in the goal, as Paqueta set up Scamacca to finish a silky team move.
