West Ham 2-1 West Brom: Andy Carrol returns in fashion to clinch rare win
The Hammers have now climbed out the relegation zone with victory over West Brom at London Stadium. On 18 and 16 respective points before the game, West Ham faced Baggies in what was a clear six-pointer.


When and where did the match take place?

West Brom travelled to London to take on hosts West Ham on Tuesday 2 January 2018, at what was the London Stadium.

How the teams lined up:

West Ham: Adrián - Winston Reid, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell - Pablo Zabaleta, Cheikhou Kouyaté, Pedro Obiang, Arthur Masuaku - Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Lanzini - Andy Carroll (3-4-2-1 formation)

West Brom: Ben Foster - Craig Dawson, Ahmed Hegazi, Jonny Evans, Kieran Gibbs - Claudio Yacob, Grzegorz Krychowiak - Jay Rodriguez, Matt Phillips, James McClean - Salomón Rondón (4-2-3-1 formation)

How it developed:

James McClean put his side ahead following a sharp attack on the break on the stroke of half-hour when his deflected 25-yarder found the left top corner.

Hammers well deserved to go level before the break but they just had been too unlucky not score, not least because of Foster's superb goalkeeping.

Having spent precisely the hour of time in search of an equaliser, The Londoners did level matters through a trademark heading goal by Andy Carroll that saw scored for the first time this season. It was coming, though, with Cresswell sending as good a cross in for the 28-year-old forward to open his goalscoring account.

Eventually, David Moyes' men did turn the game around in the last minute of injury time when Andy Carroll registered a brace, ensuring Hammers ripped out a rare home win.

They have now earned 21 points and moved within a point above the relegation zone, while West Brom lost out a six-pointer to stay second-bottom in the table.
