Jake Livermore: West Ham to investigate West Brom midfielder's altercation with fans

And the Baggies complained about the arrangement of the trip to the London Stadium to play David Moyes' side because of the fixture congestion.

The Derry native was heavily criticised on Sunday following West Brom's 1-1 draw with Arsenal after he came on as a substitute with 20 minutes to go and scored an own goal.

Albion chairman John Williams has spoken directly to Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore to voice the Baggies' concerns, sources tell Press Association Sport.

Though West Brom are right to feel hard done by, it's not as if West Ham are getting it any easier as they will also play twice in two days.

Their Thursday game against Tottenham at Wembley was originally scheduled for the weekend just gone but club insiders said it was moved because of issues to do with the London Underground.

West Brom manager Alan Pardew said he did not know what prompted Livermore to react as he did.

However, Moyes, who played for the Shrews between 1987 and 1990, has so far failed to right the ship completely, and has admitted that Premier League safety will always trump cup competitions in his view.

Asked if he was forced to make changes to his side because of the frequency of games, Pardew said: "Of course I am". There's some players who won't be able to cope with that.

'We have got two days rest in Premier League professional football, putting players at risk, in my opinion, of injury.

Thoughts on the arrangement of the game?

Whilst Salop have been flying in League One this season, the Hammers have struggled to avoid a relegation fight in the Premier League - with Slaven Bilic sacked after falling into the relegation zone in November.
