West Ham United have been drawn against Championship side West Bromwich Albion in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The Hammers progressed from round three courtesy of a 2-0 win over Gillingham on Sunday night, with Pablo Zabaleta and Pablo Fornals on the scoresheet.
And although the capital side are at home, it will be a tough assignment against a team going very well in the Championship this season. The Baggies are second with only two games lost out of 26.

It will also mean a return to the London Stadium for a certain Slaven Bilic, and many of the West Ham fans referenced that fact when discussing the tie.

Others, meanwhile, purely discussed the tie, and it would be fair to say that there are some mixed options on whether their side will be the favourites to progress.
Could be worse but could be better. Tough tie ⚒

One supporter even claimed that Bilic should not have been sacked as head coach and will be looking to prove a point upon his return.
The 51-year-old was in charge of the Hammers between June 2015 and November 2017, winning 42, drawing 30 and losing 37 of his 109 matches at the helm.
Welcome back Slav , you should never have been sacked, hope you come back and have the last laugh, and prove our board wrong 👍

Meanwhile, West Ham are said to be considering a sensational move for a central defender during the January transfer window.
