West Brom will be looking to get back to the winning ways when they host West Ham at the Hawthorns on Saturday. The Baggies have gone off the boil in the recent weeks following their impressive start to the season.
After starting the new season with two consecutive wins, Tony Pulis’ men have managed to pick up just a single point in their last two games. Last weekend, they suffered a 3-1 loss at recently-promoted Brighton. It was their first loss the season.
The Baggies, who have failed to score more than one goal in a league game this season, currently find themselves ninth in the table with seven points.
The Hammers will come into the game on the back of a critical 2-0 home win over another promoted side – Huddersfield. The Hammers had lost the opening three games of the season, and the win against the Terriers produced their first points of the season. The result has certainly lifted some pressure off manager Slaven Bilic, and the Croatian would be hoping for another decent performance from his players on Saturday.
Last season, the hosts won the corresponding fixture 4-2 while the game at London Stadium ended in a 2-2 draw.
