The Hammers welcome the Baggies to the London Stadium tonight in what is a huge game for both sides but for very different reasons!
West Ham are looking to kick on and could jump inside the top six with a convincing win.
West Brom, meanwhile, will be desperate follow up their win away at Wolves on Saturday with another three points tonight.
Sam Allardyce’s men are currently five points adrift of safety.
David Moyes’s men will have their work cut-out tonight. The Baggies will be flying high after their 3-2 win in the Black Country derby.
It seems as though West Ham could have a big advantage over West Brom, however.
West Brom face injury nightmare ahead of West Ham clash
BBC Sport suggest that Grady Diangana, Conor Townsend, Karlan Grant and Matt Phillips are all out with Sam Johnstone facing a late fitness test.
Even if Johnstone is fit to play, not being able to call upon the other four players for tonight’s clash with West Ham will clearly be a massive blow for West Brom and Allardyce.
We desperately need a win tonight. West Brom will undoubtedly be resolute and hard to beat, as all Sam Allardyce teams are.
The Baggies being without a plethora of key players will definitely assist West Ham tonight, however.
Let’s hope Moyes’s men can make it three Premier League wins in a row.
