Premier League preview and odds: West Bromwich Albion vs West Ham United

September 17 , 2016 15:00pm - The Hawthorns

Premier League

Two teams struggling for form in the Premier League will battle it out on Saturday afternoon as winless-in-three West Bromwich Albion welcome 17th-ranked West Ham United to the Hawthorns.

One win in 13 Premier League fixtures for Baggies

West Brom started the season on a high by winning 1-0 away from home to Crystal Palace but have added just one point to their tally since. In total, they have won just one of their last 13 league matches and look to be heading for another season of frustration.

The Baggies will be hoping that new signing Nacer Chadli can make an impact as they look to keep their head above water this term. Boss Tony Pulis could certainly find himself under pressure if the results don`t come soon.

Meanwhile, West Ham will be trying to recover from their capitulation against Watford last weekend. The Hammers took the lead thanks to two goals from Michail Antonio in the first thirty minutes before conceding four in 22 minutes and slumping to defeat.

The Londoners have lost three of their opening four Premier League fixtures and were also eliminated from European competition at the very first hurdle. Boss Slaven Bilic will be looking for a quick turnaround with his side just a point above the drop zone. The first issue he may need to address is his defence, with nine goals already conceded this term.

Both teams could do with a boost, but neither has shown great form so far. However, the Irons could point to the upheaval of moving to a new stadium as a reason for their less-than-inspiring start to the campaign.

Team news

Tony Pulis will have to make do without the services of Chris Brunt for the visit of West Ham.

Meanwhile, the Hammers have some medical issues of their own with Andre Ayew, Aaron Cresswell and Diafra Sakho all still on the injury list.

Betting odds and tips

While West Ham have struggled to keep out the goals, West Brom have struggled to score them. The Midland side have scored just two goals in their last six games at home in the league and are without a home win since March.
