And West Brom will be feeling confident against the Hammers, who currently find themselves languishing just above the relegation zone in the Premier League table, and the occasion has seen the Baggies official Twitter account post a video of what occurred the last time these two sides met with Bilic on the touchline.
Should West Brom make the FA Cup a priority?
Yes, a Cup run is always good
No, we have to focus on promotion
A last-minute Gareth McAuley equaliser ensured the points were shared at the London Stadium as Bilic’s then West Ham side failed to see out a 2-1 lead against West Brom, and some Baggies supporters on social media had some fond memories from the game.
Here’s what a few Baggies fans had to say on Twitter about the iconic equaliser from McAuley and the game itself…

Yes, I got showered with biscuits being thrown from their fans. It was a freezing cold day & I met Dean Saunders in the pub before the match.

West Brom will be looking for only their second win of 2020 this weekend when the Baggies make the trip down south to the English capital.
