  • West Ham's Robert Snodgrass prepared to take on old friends in West Brom clash

There was late drama at the London Stadium yesterday as Jonny Evans' stoppage-time header earned West Bromwich Albion a point at West Ham.

Nacer Chadli opened the scoring in the sixth minute as he breezed past CheikhouKouyate and beat Darren Randolph. Manuel Lanzini's thumping effort was tipped onto the bar by Foster, and Feghouli was on hand to pick up the pieces, slotting into an empty net from six yards, much to the relief of all connected with the east Londoners. Whatever", Bilic said. "We have been punished enough with the result.

And a furious Slaven Bilic was sent to the stands in the final minutes, after he threw a television microphone to the ground in anger.

West Brom are flying high in eighth place in the table, and have their sights set on seventh-place Everton and potentially a place in the Europa League.

Bilic's mood did not improve when a Feghouli goal was ruled out for offside, but the Algerian's equaliser, latching on to the rebound after Ben Foster had tipped a Lanzini shot onto his bar, was just rewards.

"It's hard to turn a game against them".

She was dazzling, of course, blowing out some goddess-level metal vocals and striking all the badass rock-poster poses. This time it was alongside Metallica , a seemingly odd pairing that nevertheless produced some fascinating results.

However, it was the visitors who scored first, as Chadli slotted home a goal from West Brom's first attack. To end like this, conceding a late goal after everything that happened regarding the decisions, it's very frustrating and hard to accept. I rate this referee, it's not personal.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis: "Fair play to West Ham they changed the system and caught us out a bit".

West Ham's next match is away to Watford in the Premier League on February 25, before a London derby at home to Chelsea on March 6.

Midfielder Yacob is also ready to return after suspected appendicitis forced him to miss last weekend's 1-0 win over Stoke.

He said: "The important thing is to go there and make sure we put a performance in. We should have come in more than one goal up".
