West Ham captain Kevin Nolan is hoping his side's trip to face West Brom has come at a good time, with the Baggies currently struggling for form.
Both clubs have had good starts to their respective Barclays Premier League seasons but West Brom have lost three league games in a row heading into the clash.
"We are really looking forward to going there and matching them, because they are a fantastic side," he said. "We hope that their bubble has burst a bit and we can go there on Sunday and get a result. They will be a tough side to come up against, I don't think I have ever been involved in an easy game at The Hawthorns, but we go there with confidence."
