A real nail biter here as two team rooted at the bottom of the Premier League come face to face atthe London Stadium, can David Moyes West Ham get a win over Alan Pardew's West Brom?
West Ham are 1-2-2 in their last five overall and 1-2-2 in their last five home games. David Moyes side need to start picking up wins as they are currently in the relegation zone. Marko Arnaoutovich netted twice in a crazy game against Bournemouth and given that they have a week to rest since that game WEst Ham should be fresher for this game against a West Brom team who played an energy sapping game against Arsenal on Sunday. West Ham will look to Chicarito, Andy Carroll, Arnautovich to lead the way and at home this might be viewed as a must win game for West Ham.
West Brom cameback from the dead against Arsenal being awarded a penalty in the 90th minute for a debatable handball. Regardless of the nature of the decision West Brom took their chance and scored from the spot through Jay Rodriguez.Alan Pardew's side actually played really well for most of the game. Rodriguez, Matt Phillips,James Mclean, Robson Kanu and Jake Livermore will be key for West Brom if the baggies are to get something from this game at the London Stadium. West Brom are 0-3-2 in their last five and are 0-8-9 in their last fifteen. West Brom have actually not won a game since a league cup win against Accrington in August. Tough to take the Baggies on the road then after short rest, especially given that West Ham have had a week to prepare for this.
I feel like all the cards are stacked in West Ham's favour here. The Hammers should just have too much for a West Brom team who played an energy sapping game on Sunday and are playing this game just over 48 hours later.
