West Ham know they cannot afford another slip-up as they look to secure European qualification and will be wary of a West Brom side who have shown signs of fight, despite already bein conssigned to the Championship next season.
Three defeats in their last five games has seen them drop from Champions League qualification and allow rivals Tottenham leapfrog them in the race for the final Europa League spot.
West Brom are playing for pride having been relegated two weeks ago, but Sam Allardyce will be looking forward to denting his former club’s chances.

West Brom vs West Ham prediction
West Brom were lucky to see Liverpool leave the Hawthorns with all three points and will fancy another test against a Europe-chasing team.
West Ham are made of sterner stuff this season and simply cannot afford another slip-up to avoid their stellar season ending in a whimper. I’m back Sam Allardyce to throw another spanner in the works. 1-1 draw.
