West Ham United and West Brom are two teams looking to build on their previous crucial victories in the Premier League. Both sides will lock horns in the London Stadium this Tuesday with kickoff at 9 pm.
The Hammers eased past Burnley in a 1-0 win, while Sam Allardyce claimed the first win as West Brom manager in a thrilling 3-2 at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
David Moyes is cherishing the thought of European football this season, given the current form for the Hammers. Their 1-0 win at Burnley marked their third win across all competitions on Saturday afternoon.
Antonio returned to fill the void left by Sebastian Haller after the 30-year-old tapped in a cross from Pablo Fornals nine minutes into the game to seal the victory. Ninth-place West Ham look set to head into the transfer market to secure a spot for a replacement for Haller.
Their win last weekend means that Moye’s men beat Stockport County and Everton with the same scoreline. The Hammers have currently kept four clean sheets in succession, with Hammers yet to ship a goal this 2021.
Allardyce has come out in the open to criticize the lack of quality in the side. The Baggies manager earned his first victory in the dugout at the sixth attempt on Saturday lunchtime. The atmosphere at Baggies was not calm after falling off the FA Cup third round.
