Saido Berahino

Saido Berahino has scored in four of his five appearances for West Brom against West Ham going into Sunday’s Premier League clash at Upton Park.

Team news

West Ham captain Mark Noble is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season at Tottenham last weekend, but both Pedro Obiang or Alex Song are fit again and so are vying for a place in midfield.

West Brom are without the banned Chris Brunt but welcome Gareth McAuley back from suspension. Several players are nursing knocks.

Kick-off at Upton Park on Sunday is at 2.05pm.
