Sam Allardyce has named the West Brom team that will face off against David Moyes’ West Ham at the London Stadium this evening.
Allardyce has made two changes to the side that beat Wolves at the weekend as he looks to secure another positive result in the capital.
The team was announced on the club’s official Twitter account before the game as fans waited to see if Big Sam would make changes.

Sam Johnstone returns in net after missing the Black Country Derby with illness after contracting COVID-19.
Kieran Gibbs, Kyle Bartley, Semi Ajayi and Dara O’Shea start in the defence as the Baggies look to keep it tight at the back
Ahead of them are Connor Gallagher, Jake Livermore and Romaine Sawyers with Callum Robinson, Matheus Pereira and Kamil Grosicki up top.
There is a renewed confidence around the club following last weekend’s win but it will all drain away quickly if we are beaten heavily tonight.
The Irons have been one of the surprise packages this season as Moyes has got them playing good and effective football.
Big Sam will no doubt have a few tricks up his sleeve and another positive result tonight would really give our survival hopes a boost.
Here’s hoping for another Albion win.
