West Ham United will play hosts to West Bromwich Albion at the London Stadium hoping to grab all three points in the Premier League on Tuesday evening. The East London outfit managed to secure a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Burnley yesterday, which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this clash against the Baggies.
The Hammers will probably set themselves up in a 4-2-3-1 formation for this upcoming showdown in midweek. Barring any late fitness concerns, Moyes isn’t expected to make too many changes to his first-team for this home encounter versus Sam Allardyce’s men. Darren Randolph could get a start in this game as Moyes might not take any chances with Łukasz Fabiański, who just returned from injury a few days ago.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face West Brom
As mentioned earlier, Darren Randolph may operate in between the sticks for West Ham as he looks to secure a clean sheet at home. Craig Dawson will resume his centre-half partnership with Angelo Ogbonna at the centre of the Hammers backline as they look to keep the Baggies at bay throughout the 90 minutes.
Vladimír Coufal will be a nailed-on starter at right-back while Aaron Cresswell hopes to produce another industrious performance on the other flank as the left-back. Moyes will ask both his full-backs to express themselves in the opposition half so that they can create some uncertainty for the West Brom centre-backs by whipping in a few pin-point crosses from the wide areas.
Ben Johnson, Issa Diop and Ryan Fredericks will be named on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice will function as the holding midfielders as they focus on keeping the ball moving at the centre of the park and engineer some inviting goal-scoring opportunities for their teammates in the final third.
The gifted trio of Pablo Fornals, Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen will carry most of the creative burden for West Ham as they play just ahead of Soucek and Rice as part of Moyes’ attack.
Soucek scored the match-winner away at Everton earlier this month, so he will be looking to put on a similar display in midweek. Manuel Lanzini and Andriy Yarmolenko will have to be content with a place on the West Ham bench but might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if required.
Michail Antonio will spearhead the Hammers attack up front. The English marksman netted the only goal of the game versus the Clarets last Saturday, which will give him a lot of confidence heading into Tuesday evening’s encounter versus the West Midlands outfit.
