West Ham v West Brom Odds : Can The Hammers keep a clean sheet at 9/4?

west-hamSaturday football is back, with the latest West Ham v West Brom odds from the Premier League.

West Ham are considered 5/4 favourites to beat West Brom at home as both teams look to end the year on a high with a win to boost their relegation chances, however William Hill have reported this morning that the 9/4 on the West Ham clean sheet, is attracting all the attention.

The Hammers have kept more clean sheets than any other Premiership side this season (8) and there’s no doubt they will once again prove stubborn as they face a struggling Baggies side.

After managing to surpass many expectations last year, both West Ham and West Brom find themselves in familiar territory as they are looking likely to be stuck in a bitter fight for survival throughout the rest of the season.

Ham are in serious trouble at the moment with Boxing Day’s 1-3 defeat to Arsenal sending them down to 19th in the table with a two point gap keeping them from safety.

Sam Allardyce has tried many different ways to try and stop the rot but nothing seems to be working especially with key players such as Andy Carroll, Alou Diarra and Razvan Rat all still injured.

There is yet more bad news for the Hammers though as Welsh defender James Collins has also picked up a knock and is also unavailable for Saturday’s game.

Although The Hammers have quelled their goalscoring problems to a degree, West Ham have yet to win all month with their last victory coming against Fulahm in mid-November.

However, West Brom are also struggling to find their feet with The Baggies now slipping to 15th place in the table and are just one point above the relegation zone.

With West Brom now under the guidance of former Real Betis boss Pepe Mel, there could well be some surprises in the line-up including the continued absence of Victor Anichebe who was left out of the side that drew 1-1 with Tottenham on Boxing Day.

Anichebe’s absence is likely to clear the way for Matej Vydra to showcase his capabilities upfront with promising English striker Saido Berahino likely to earn a spot on the bench alongside Irishman Shane Long.

As Pepe Mel gets to grips with his new squad, now could be the perfect time for The Baggies to improve their dismal away form which has seen them win just once outside of The Hawthorns all season long.

Both sides are desperate for three points out of Saturday’s fixture as both West Ham and West Brom look to avoid spending the rest of their season trying to protect their status as a Premier League side.
