West Ham United Starting Lineup Prediction at West Brom


While it’s almosr certain West Ham United wont finish in the top four, and that’s very disappointing considering where they were in the table during April, one must look at those expectations within the proper context.

Last season the Hammers were just able to survive and stay up in the top flight, so entering this term, any kind of European football would be considered a huge accomplishment. The UEL qualification is still there for them, provided they take care of business and get help. The next step is a trip to already relegated West Brom on Wednesday night.
