West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion Match Preview

Slaven Bilic has had a fantastic start to his West Ham managerial career as he has guided them to 6th place in the league but they have started to lose their momentum with the loss of Dimitri Payet and they are currently on a three game win-less streak.

West Ham’s attack has been their strength this season with 24 goals in the premiership already but with the loss of Payet and generally a fall in their performances, the defensive side of their game will be exposed as they have conceded the most amount of goals from any of the top 14 teams.

The good news for West Ham is that they have already faced a lot of the tougher teams in the league meaning they have a relatively generous fixture list heading into the new year.

West Brom have had a distinctly average start to their season as they sit in 12th position, their attack will need to improve if they wish to push any higher in the table because at this moment in time they have scored just 12 goals in 13 matches. Their defensive solidarity has been their saving grace as it was for most of last season, especially away from home where they have conceded just four goals in six matches.

West Ham Latest Team News:

West Ham will be without Dimitri Payet and Enner Valencia through injury as well as James Collins and Mark Noble due to suspension in this match.

West Brom Latest Team News:

West Brom have just one injury at the moment with Ben Foster remaining sidelined but they will also be missing Chris Brunt in this match after picking up his fifth yellow card of this season last weekend.

West Ham vs West Brom Head to Head Statistics

14/02/15 FAC West Brom vs West Ham 4 : 0
01/01/15 BPL West Ham vs West Brom 1 : 1
02/12/14 BPL West Brom vs West Ham 1 : 2
26/04/14 BPL West Brom vs West Ham 1 : 0
28/12/13 BPL West Ham vs West Brom 3 : 3

These two sides have faced off on 84 different occasions, West Brom have slightly edged those meetings with 35 wins to West Ham’s 33.

And in the 41 meetings that have taken place in which West Ham have held the home advantage, West Ham have been much the better team after beating West Brom in 21 of those matches whilst losing just 12.

Using head to head statistics alone it would suggest that West Ham have the better chance of claiming all three points here due to the fact that they are at home.

West Ham Recent Form

22/11/15 BPL Tottenham vs West Ham 4 : 1
07/11/15 BPL Manchester United vs West Ham 1 : 1
31/10/15 BPL Watford vs West Ham 2 : 0
24/10/15 BPL Norwich vs West Ham 2 : 1
17/10/15 BPL Crystal Palace vs West Ham 1 : 3

West Ham have hit a poor streak with two defeats and a loss in their last three matches which has only been made worse by their star player Dimitri Payet being ruled out for three months through injury. They have faced some tough opponents in recent weeks and will see this match as a chance to get back on track.

West Brom Recent Form

21/11/15 BPL West Brom vs Arsenal 2 : 1
07/11/15 BPL Manchester United vs West Brom 2 : 0
31/10/15 BPL West Brom vs Leicester 2 : 3
24/10/15 BPL Norwich vs West Brom 0 : 1
17/10/15 BPL West Brom vs Sunderland 1 : 0

West Brom are in decent form with three wins from five including a shock win against Arsenal last week which will have given the whole squad a boost. West Brom will be looking to take advantage of West Ham’s poor form and a win would mean back-to-back wins for the second time this season.

West Ham vs West Brom Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the 84 matches that have taken place between these two sides, there has been a total of 268 goals meaning that there has been an average goals per game of 3.19.

And in the 41 meetings in which West Ham had been the home side, there has been 141 goals scored meaning that there has been an average goals per game of 3.44.

Both sets of data suggest that the game on Sunday afternoon will see a minimum of three goals in what should be an entertaining game.

West Ham vs West Brom Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I think that this game is difficult to predict because West Brom are inconsistent away from home, in their last six away matches they have either lost without scoring or win without conceding. But one thing that has always remained the same is that they have not conceded a first half goal, they have not conceded a first half goals in eleven away matches now in all competitions. This is also favoured by the fact that West Ham will struggle going forward without their main man Dimitri Payet and will need to adjust to play without him.

And as for my saver I am leaning towards an away win for West Brom as I think that they will allow West Ham to have possession of the ball and West Ham tend to struggle when they have the majority of possession which should see West Brom be able to counter and I could see this match ending 1-0 to the Baggies.
