Our match prediction:
West Bromwich Albion have been struggling in front of goal of late. Following a goalless draw with Middlesbrough, the Baggies suffered a 1-0 loss to Bournemouth in their last league match. Tony Pulis’ men are eager to put an end to the negative trend, but Saturday’s football match against West Ham United will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Hammers, on the other hand, have yet to find their best form and they will be looking to make amends for a 4-2 loss to Watford when they take on WBA at the Hawthorns. Slaven Bilic’s men are desperate to return to winning ways and the good news for the fans is that Dmitri Payet impressed in the 4-2 loss to Watford. West Ham United want this win more than WBA and that is the main reason why we predict the capital club are going to pick up all three points from the game.
