Surprisingly, the results haven't gone their way, as West Ham have only managed a win in 4 games.

However, they failed miserably in their attempt to go one better last term, earning just 45 points, scoring 47 goals, and finishing in 11th place. Nacer Chadli could return and striker Hal Robson Kanu is back after serving his suspension.

West Ham are back in action on Saturday as they make the trip north to face West Brom.

Pedro Obiang and Andre Ayew scored the decisive goals as West Ham got the better of early season surprise package Huddersfield, who were yet to concede up to that point.

We'll have to wait and see what happens, but considering Saint-Etienne are now fourth in Ligue 1 after a more than impressive start to their campaign, it might take a lot to convince him to leave.

Skipper Mark Noble and playmaker Manuel Lanzini are ruled out for the Hammers with injuries.

Carvalho, however, remains intent on making the move to the Premier League and is confident that he will be a West Ham player by the turn of the year.

With West Ham United now occupying a relegation place in the English Premier League, manager Bilic finds himself under pressure although the club's 2-0 home victory over newly promoted club Huddersfield Town on Monday evening has helped lift some of the gloom surrounding The London Stadium.

"One potential landmark of note - Albion's Gareth Barry is set to equal Ryan Giggs' all time record of 632 Premier League appearances this weekend. They might be where they are but I don't expect them to stay there".

"We were in a position we didn't like, and now we've won, we have got a boost". Most likely then he will get injured.

The Baggies have won just two of their last 13 Premier League games against the Hammers.

West Brom also don't score too many, and I think there is a chance that both teams could cancel each other out.
