West Ham team news: Turkish international fighting for a place, striker crisis continues

West Ham take on West Brom at the Hawthornes hoping to turn around their fortunes after an unimpressive start to the season.

The Hammers have won just one of their four Premier League games and suffered a 4-2 defeat against Watford last week despite taking a two goal lead.

West Ham are still facing a striker striker crisis with Diafra Sakho, Andrew Ayew and Andy Carroll all out.

Aaron Cresswell is also out and James Collins is expected to be replaced by Angelo Ogbonna after a disappointing display against Watford.

In other West Ham team news Gokhan Tore is fit and will be fighting for his place in the team but with Lanzini, Payet and Antonio all available he may struggle to work his way into the starting line-up – although a substitute appearance is likely.

Predicted starting XI’s

West Brom: Foster, Galloway, Evans, McAuley, Dawson, Yacob, Fletcher, Chadli, Gardner, Phillips, Rondón.

West Ham: Adrián, Masuaku, Ogbonna, Reid, Byram, Noble, Kouyaté, Payet, Lanzini, Antonio, Zaza.
