West Ham vs West Brom Prediction & Match Preview

West Ham vs West Brom
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 19 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium.

West Ham United will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Burnley when they host West Bromwich Albion at Olympic Stadium. 

The Hammers are on a three-game winning run in all competitions, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive clean sheet. 

Even though the capital club will rely on their rock-solid defence in Tuesday’s clash, home win should be considered as David Moyes’ troops have been in a splendid form of late.

The Baggies, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Wolverhampton on the road, with the team recording their second win of the season. 

WBA regained a much-needed confidence, but seeing that West Ham are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that Sam Allardyce’s troops will return home empty-handed. 

Both head coaches can count on key players for the postponed fixture.

Team News:

West Ham have very little to worry about on the injury front, although Fabian Balbuena remains unavailable after coming into close contact with a COVID-positive individual.

Moyes has conceded that Arthur Masuaku will not be back for another couple of months, and on the other side of defence, Ryan Fredericks returned to the bench against Burnley but will struggle to displace the solid Vladimir Coufal.

It would be a surprise to see any member of Moyes's XI from Saturday drop out here, meaning that Said Benrahma will be out to net his first top-flight goal for the club in his fifth start.

West Brom will be able to welcome Conor Gallagher back from suspension for this one, but Sam Johnstone and Matt Phillips have tested positive for coronavirus.

Grady Diangana missed out the win at Molineux with a hamstring injury, and it seems unlikely that he will recover in time for this game.

Allardyce will be reluctant to make too many changes from Saturday's victory, but Gallagher and Darnell Furlong could return to the XI ahead of Romaine Sawyers and Dara O'Shea respectively.

West Ham United possible starting lineup:
Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals; Antonio

West Bromwich Albion possible starting lineup:
Button; Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Gibbs; Gallagher, Livermore; Snodgrass, Pereira, Grosicki; Robinson
