Finally, the winless league run is over, and the Baggies are now on a winning run of two games in all competitions!
It may be a new year but it brought no change to Albion’s fortunes as they were defeated once again in the first match of 2018. The defeat leaves them four points from safety as the Hammers move out of the drop zone thanks to the 94th minute winner.
One record came to end on New Year’s Eve, but another didn’t. The Baggies’ winless run is extended to 20 games in all competitions, 19 in the Premier League, but their 56 game wait for a penalty finally came to an end against Arsenal.
