David Moyes has quite the job on his hands at West Ham. A 4-0 triumph over a badly struggling Bournemouth in his first game at the helm offered plenty of encouragement, which was followed by a comfortable 2-0 success away at Gillingham in the previous round of this tournament.
However, since then his side has suffered defeats on the road at Sheffield Utd and Leicester, while also drawing at home to Everton as Moyes is yet to fully convince in his second spell with the club.
The Hammers now sit just outside the relegation zone on goal difference, thanks to that win over the Cherries, but with Felipe Anderson joining Lukasz Fabianski and Andriy Yarmolenko on the sidelines, it would appear a good time to take them on. Indeed, Anderson leads the club’s assist chart this term, while without Yarmolenko in the league alone, the Hammers are just W1-D1-L6.
Even more disturbingly, they’re just W2-D2-L9 this season in the absence of key shot stopper Fabianski, while in addition, they also conceded four times against Oxford Utd in the Carabao Cup without him.
West Brom or Draw (Double Chance)
West Brom currently lead the Championship table, narrowly ahead of Leeds, though both sides have stuttered of late and they’re not as comfortably far ahead of their promotion rivals as they were previously.
Their sole victory in seven outings came away at Charlton in the previous round of this tournament, but having drawn four of these games, they’re still a tough team to take down and they’ve now lost just two of 19 fixtures since early October (W10-D7-L2).
The Baggies benefit from a near empty treatment room, with former Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs the only absentee.
Slaven Bilic will also have intimate knowledge of one or two of West Ham’s players, having departed from the club as their manager as recently as November 2017, so he should feel confident of masterminding a positive result of some kind.
In the eight FA Cup matches he’s taken charge of during his time in England, Bilic has a W3-D3-L2 record, with the defeats coming against Man Utd and Man City, while the three stalemates were garnered against Liverpool (twice) and Man Utd. With that in mind, his current side look worth backing on the double chance.
