West Brom will be keen to get the New Year off to a flying start by securing a much-needed win at West Ham on Tuesday.

The Baggies have been showing slightly more positive signs in recent games but will know that points are absolutely imperative in their bid to survive this season.

They head into the game following an important draw against Arsenal on New Year’s Eve. A late Jay Rodriguez penalty helped the Baggies claim a much-needed boost ahead of a tough trip to the London Stadium.

The Hammers haven’t been in action recently but most recently played out an enthralling 3-3 draw with Bournemouth, in which they were hugely unlucky to have only come away with a point.

West Brom will undoubtedly prove to be a tough opponent for West Ham, with Alan Pardew knowing that only a win will do against a side who are close to them on the table.

Here’s how we expect Pardew to set his side out.
