West Brom: Sam Allardyce could be without 5 vs West Ham

West Brom: Sam Allardyce could be without 5 vs West Ham - West Bromwich Albion News

According to BBC Sport, West Bromwich Albion manager Sam Allardyce could be without five players for his side’s game against West Ham United later today.

Allardyce could be missing five

Allardyce picked up his first win since becoming manager of the Midlands outfit last Saturday as his side beat local rivals Wolves 3-2 (Reuters).

How many clubs had Bilic managed before taking the West Brom job?

However, he could well be without five players for this match against the Hammers as Grady Diangana, Conor Townsend, Karlan Grant and Matt Phillips are all out, while Sam Johnstone may also be unavailable.

Difficult task

These absences do not make Allardyce’s life any easier. While Diangana and Grant may not have been at their best this term, both cost over £10m during the summer transfer window (Transfermarkt) and, under a new manager, they may be able to retrieve their best form. Townsend is a popular player amongst the club’s supporters (West Brom News), and Phillips offers pace down the wings.

Will West Brom beat West Ham?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Johnstone, meanwhile, has been linked with a move to Tottenham (The Sun), which only goes to show how impressive he has been this campaign.

All in all, Allardyce will be disappointed that the number of options available to him has been massively reduced, especially against a side in the top ten of the Premier League. He will be hoping that the players who are available have enough to get a result at the London Stadium, but it won’t be easy with some of his most important players ruled out.

In other news, West Brom are in talks to sign this prolific striker.
