Both sides remain in relegation trouble but you would have to say a point for West Brom - especially away from home - is more valuable. Momentum in this game regularly changed hands and for the neutral it was a Christmas cracker - sorry! Nicolas Anelka showed why he could be a key man for the Baggies in their bid to climb up the table with two predatory strikes, while West Ham would currently give anything to have a goalscorer of his pedigree in their ranks.

Mitch says: 'It's a must win for us but I can already see we are going to have 2 games on our hands here as I can't see a few of the guys lasting the full 90 minutes especially the Coles ... I can see that causing us a problem if we get anymore injuries during the game and if we do get through these guys will need replacing and I think it will be during that period that the game will be decided... As tactically and unless we are a few goals ahead I can see West Brom taking advantage of the changes that this period will bring.'
'As a Hammers fan, I can see a miserable defeat today, with the Baggies winning 2-0 with Anelka getting both. I feel big Sam's time will be up in the next few weeks if we don't start picking up some wins. Hoping for a win but just can't see it,' says Grant Oddy.
'As a Baggies fan and as much as I'm hoping for a win today, I think this game has got draw written all over it! With West Ham struggling to score goals and us drawing our previous two games 1-1, I think this game is a draw all day long! Also where has Anelka emerged from? I'd love to know how he's back in the starting XI when nobody's heard off him for weeks! But no matter what I'll get behind my team today so COYB!' says Joshua Hayward.
Form favours neither outfit with the Hammers picking up just a solitary point from their last five games while the Baggies are winless in eight. As a result, both sides have had their odds for relegation trimmed, although the hosts are considered twice as likely for the drop at 9/4 to their visitors' price of 9/2. The goal-shy Hammers will hope Carlton Cole can able to maintain his rare scoring run, having netted in back-to-back 3-1 defeats, and he heads the first goalscorer market along with Shane Long at 6/1 apiece.
