West Ham United vs West Bromwich Albion Match Preview
Slaven Bilic returns to West Ham just over two years after his departure as their manager – but we do not expect it to be a happy homecoming for the Croat.
Since Bilic left in November 2017, the Hammers have not really kicked on as they hoped with David Moyes’ two spells in charge sandwiching a fairly underwhelming 18 months or so during which Manuel Pellegrini was at the helm.
West Bromwich Albion are Bilic’s present employers and he has made a fine start since taking over last summer with the club currently top of the Championship table, even though they have failed to win any of their last six league games.
Automatic promotion back to the Premier League after two seasons away will obviously be the top priority for the Baggies, who may be placing even more importance on Tuesday’s trip to Cardiff than on this tie.
The danger for West Ham is that they could even swap divisions with the Albion for next term because their midweek 4-1 defeat at Leicester left them out of the relegation zone only on goal difference, being level on points with both Bournemouth and Watford just below them.
Neither team is firing on all cylinders just now but with home advantage, and no forthcoming midweek fixture to distract them, West Ham are backed to put one over Bilic and his promotion hopefuls.
