NEAL Maupay’s stunning overhead kick earned Albion a draw at the London Stadium against West Ham United.

Before the match Potter had made two big decisions with his team selection, one was dropping in form Tariq Lamptey to the bench and the other was to give a full Premier League debut to Jeremy Sarmiento.

Albion were hoping to continue the level of performance that they showed against Leeds United on Saturday, but with more efficiency in front of goal.

The game started well for Albion who put the Hammers under pressure. The first chance of the game fell to Neal Maupay in the home side's penalty area, he did well to turn and strike, but his effort dribbled wide of the right-hand post.

Albion were made to pay for that miss immediately as West Ham went up the other end and took the lead. In the fourth minute the Hammers earned a corner, Pablo Fornals whipped in the ball and it was flicked in by midfielder Tomas Soucek.

Sarmiento's Premier League debut did not last long as he was forced off in the11th minute of the match after picking up a knock and as replaced by Solly March.

Despite the change to the team and going behind early Albion looked the better side and were seeing plenty of the ball, the only thing lacking in the play was the final ball or effort on goal, Trossard and March both had efforts blocked by the Hammers.

There was concern for Webster in the 20th minute as he went down holding his calf muscle. The defender however was able to carry on.

Despite being bettered by Albion, West Ham looked more likely to score the next goal and went close through Coufal and Fornals. The Spanish midfielder rattled the crossbar with a volley from inside the Albion box.

The concern for Webster was back in the 34th minute as he went down again, this time Potter took no chances and replaced him with Shane Duffy.

In the 38th minute Albion almost found themselves level after some great play down the right wing which led to Maupay passing through to Jakub Moder.

The Polish midfielder's first-time effort was blocked by his fellow countryman Lukasz Fabianski.

Potter and his team will now turn their attention to Saturday and a trip along the coast to take on Southampton.
