Jake Livermore: West Ham to investigate West Brom midfielder's altercation with fans

The defending of West Ham was at times very uncoordinated, with several West Brom chances coming from a lack of conviction from the home side's defenders. The equaliser was a vintage header, taking out two defenders as he hurtled through the air.

Both pushed for a victor and it was the hosts who made the breakthrough in stoppage time. After a 2017 in which he barely had any real impact on the pitch, 2018 could not have begun any better.

West Brom fans took to Twitter to criticise his performance, with many suggesting that they would be happy to see his season-long loan deal cut short with La Liga outfit Getafe reportedly interested according to Spanish publication AS.

With 30 minutes on the clock a solo run by James McClean went beyond all the opposition's back-line, reached the edge of the box and got his shot deflected by Angelo Ogbonna to score the opener.

West Brom fell to West Ham 2-1 last night in the Premier League, and while James McClean's fortuitous strike made most of the headlines here, unfortunately an ugly incident marred the occasion.

'The games are hard and there's a lot of them.

Salomon Rondon, one of those four changes from the Arsenal game, nearly gave West Brom an early lead when he spun away from Angelo Ogbonna and, as Winston Reid hesitated, lofted the ball over Adrian and onto the roof of the net.

"Getting thrown in tonight I thought I did well for 90 minutes, I got through it".

West Ham have plenty of injury worries with forwards Michail Antonio and Diafra Sakho both doubts and defender Aaron Cresswell suffering a back injury. He stood up a cross to the far post.

"It was so important as it could have gone either way", said Moyes. "I don't think any action will be taken against Livermore at all".

Disgraceful fan behaviour has marred two football games in Britain this week. West Ham continued to squeeze forward as West Brom exhausted physically and mentally. Offensively, West Ham have been middle of the pack but Marko Arnautovic caught fire in December.

That was a decisive moment, which could have delivered West Brom's first league win since August. West Brom are bang in trouble and the odd draw against the mid-table sides isn't going to get them out.
