Slaven Bilic will make his return to London Stadium this weekend as struggling West Ham host West Brom in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Croatian was sacked by the Hammers in November 2017 and is now attempting to restore Albion's Premier League status.

Date: Saturday, January 25th, 2020

Venue: London Stadium, Stratford

Kick-off time: 3:00pm GMT

Prediction: West Ham 1-1 West Brom

These are tough times for West Ham, who currently sit outside of the Premier League relegation zone on goal difference only after their poor run continued with a 4-1 thumping by Leicester.

But things are hardly rosy for West Brom at present, either, despite their place at the Championship summit.

Following a home defeat at the hands of lowly Stoke, the Baggies have now won just one of their last eight matches and seen a healthy buffer to the rest of the promotion-chasing pack all but disappear.

A replay could be needed to settle this evenly-matched tie between two teams seemingly low on confidence.
