West Ham’s early season form has hit a bumpy patch with back-to-back defeats against Wolves and Manchester City.

Prior to that, the Hammers had secured four consecutive Premier League wins, and have won their last two games at home.

Team news

Graham Potter said, "Everyone's fine from Saturday's game. Steven Alzate and Danny Welbeck are getting closer and closer. In the next couple of weeks we'd like to see them training with the team."

PL Highlights: Albion 1 West Ham 1

Danny Welbeck’s chip with six minutes to play looked to have sealed all three points for Albion after a fairly even game at the Amex in May, but Said Benrahma’s clever finish in the 87th minute ensured the Hammers left the Amex with a point. The teams drew 2-2 in their last meeting at the London Stadium last December when Albion were twice pegged back after leading through goals from Neal Maupay and Lewis Dunk.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh had gone close to breaking the deadlock after beating Lukas Fabianski to the ball only to see his effort drift narrowly wide, while Craig Dawson nodded wide when he should have hit the target for West Ham.

West Ham’s player to watch

By Paul Hazlewood
Michail Antonio has scored six Premier League so far this campaign.

Michail Antonio has been key to West Ham’s impressive start to the campaign. The Jamaica international looks the complete forward this season with not only his goalscoring but the way he leads the line. However, the 31-year-old is on his longest goal-drought of the Premier League season, having not scored in his last four matches.
