Half-time at the London Stadium…

West Ham United 1-0 West Bromwich Albion

Jarrod Bowen’s goal in first hlaf stoppage-time has handed West Ham the lead.

The opening period has replicated a training game of attack versus defence with the Hammers enjoying plenty of the ball, but unable to penitrate a deep Basggies backline.

Bowen’s fifth goal of the campaign has changed the picture. Vladimir Coufal and Manuel Lanzini had early chances for the Hammers, while Matheus Pereira’s effort for the visitors’ was too high.
