Preview: West Brom XI vs West Ham – latest team and injury news, predicted lineup

West Brom welcome back their supporters to the Hawthorns as they host Sam Allardyce’s former club West Ham this evening.

The Baggies’ relegation back to the Championship was confirmed last week but for the first time in over a year, approximately 6,000 fans will be in attendance.

Big Sam will want to give them something to shout about as it’s the only Premier League game the lucky few will be able to witness for quite some time.

Last time out, the Midlands outfit were sensationally beaten by Liverpool after goalkeeper Alisson headed home in injury time, but what sort of side will we see this evening?

Here’s our predicted Albion XI as well as the latest team and injury news…

There could be as many as four changes from Sunday’s agonising defeat as Big Sam keeps one eye on next season.

Sam Johnstone could play his final home game for the club amid interest in his signature from many of the Baggies’ current top-flight rivals, whilst the defence could largely remain the same barring one switch at right-back as 25-year-old Darnell Furlong is replaced by academy gem Dara O’Shea.

We'll start off easy... Who scored the goal that sealed the Baggies' return to the Premier League?

The Irishman could play a bit part next season and he will need to cement down a firm position, either at centre-back or on the right.

In midfield, we could see club captain Jake Livermore start, having come off the bench at the weekend, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles being preferred to fellow loanee Conor Gallagher next to him.

After giving a runout to Hal Robson-Kanu, who is out of contract in the summer, we may well see Karlan Grant given a rare start – just like Grady Diangana’s surprise return to the starting XI.

He should remain with Matheus Pereira joining them in attack, whilst Okay Yokuslu continues in the anchorman role in front of Conor Townsend, Kyle Bartley and Semi Ajayi.
