Baggies have the upper hand over West Ham
West Ham gained their first win of the season at home to Huddersfield to ease the pressure on manager Slaven Bilic but their away performances have to be a concern.
The Hammers conceded ten goals in visits to Manchester United, Southampton and Newcastle and it is difficult to be optimistic about their chances on the road.
West Brom should be much stronger than they were in a poor defeat at Brighton last time out and can come out on top of what could be a scrappy encounter.
2pts 11-8 general
Gareth McAuley could be involved after recovering from a thigh injury, while Hal Robson-Kanu is available after suspension.
Marko Arnautovic returns from a ban but skipper Mark Noble is out with a knee injury.
Just two of West Brom's last 11 home league games have featured more than two goals.
