West Ham go into their clash with eighth place West Brom this weekend having won three of their last four Premier League matches.
Despite being thumped 4-0 by Manchester City ten days ago, Slaven Bilic’s men bounced back with an impressive 3-1 victory at Southampton last weekend, with goals from Andy Carroll, Pedro Obiang, and Mark Noble cancelling out Manolo Gabbiadini’s opener for the Saints.
It means that the Hammers are in ninth ahead of Saturday’s clash, four points adrift of Tony Pulis’ Baggies, who also won last time out courtesy of a 1-0 success over his former employers Stoke.
Pulis’ side have won four of their last six league games, although have lost on both of their most recent visits to the capital, having gone down 4-0 at Tottenham last time out, and 1-0 at Arsenal on Boxing Day.
Nonetheless, West Brom will be a stern test for Bilic’s men who, if they still harbour ambitions of replicating last season’s seventh place finish in the league, could really do with all three points on Saturday.
