Tony Pulis believes that West Ham have regained their “mojo” and returned to the form which got everybody talking about them last season.
The West Brom manager is also looking forward to visiting the London Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League clash which pits eighth against ninth.
The 59-year-old has revealed that the Hammers appear to have their confidence back after winning three of their last four matches.
Speaking in a press conference on Friday, as reported on West Brom’s official Twitter page, Pulis said: “West Ham will be tough. They’ve got their mojo back after a tough start to the season.
TP: "@WestHamUtd will be tough. They've got their mojo back after a tough start to the season. Looking forward to London Stadium visit" #WBA

“The important thing is to go to West Ham and put a good performance in. We have to keep our feet on the ground”
Slaven Bilic’s side will at best close up the five point gap between themselves and Pulis’ men to two points should they win the tie.
The Hammers have failed to beat West Brom in their last three home games against the Black Country club, all of which ending in draws.
The Baggies, who will be very happy with their season so far, eased past the London club in the reverse fixture when they took a four goal lead and eventually won 4-2.
In West Ham’s last three wins they have scored three goals on each occasion, with Andy Carroll spearheading the club’s resurgence with at least one goal in each of those victories, his most recent in the 3-1 defeat of Southampton last Saturday.
