Tip Reasoning

West Ham had a difficult first half to the Premier League season and it looked like it might get worse when Dimitri Payet refused to play for them, but his departure seems to have brought the remaining players closer together and they’re looking like a very solid team at the moment.

Their 3-1 win at Southampton last weekend made it three wins from their last four games in the Premier League, and they have now won six of their last nine league games. This has lifted them to 9th in the table, with them sitting five points adrift of the top eight.

It’s West Brom who occupy this 8th position, with them being just four points adrift of Everton in 7th after a phenomenal season so far. This continued last weekend with a hard fought 1-0 win at home to Stoke.

The Baggies have now lost just one of their last six Premier League games, beating Southampton, Hull, Sunderland, and Stoke in the process. Away from home the victories are a bit harder to come by though, with just three all season and their four draws and five defeats making up the remainder of their results on the road.

It’s no secret that West Ham have struggled to adapt to life at the London Stadium, but they have at least managed three wins from their last five league games there and have only lost to Arsenal, Manchester United, and Manchester City since the start of October.

Recently The Hammers major attacking threat has been Andy Carroll, but the striker is a slight doubt ahead of this clash and could miss out. That would take the onus onto top scorer Michail Antonio, who has proven his versatility this season by bagging eight league goals from a multitude of different positions. West Brom haven’t kept a clean sheet away from home since the opening day of the season, so backing Antonio to score anytime at 21/10 looks the best choice for our goalscorer predictions.

Both of these sides have decent attacking lineups at the moment. West Ham have failed to score in just 25% of their home games this season whilst West Brom have found the back of the net in 67% of their trips away. The Baggies have scored in seven of their last ten on the road too, with their only three failures coming against sides in the top four. West Ham have also scored in seven of their last ten at home, and all of their failures also came against the top sides. This makes odds of 3/4 for Both Teams to Score look a good value offering, so I’m backing that alongside a 2-1 win for The Hammers at 9/1 for my correct score predictions.
