THE TEAM NEWS

WEST HAM

  • West Ham come into this game firmly entrenched in a relegation fight so David Moyes will be hoping his men can make a fast restart especially as they have one of the hardest schedules remaining.
  • David Moyes looked to have a found something of a preferred formula after plenty of tinkering since he returned to the club and he looks set to retain the two forwards to give greater support to Haller.
  • Ogbonna is an injury concern for Moyes with a knee problem but the Italian should pass a fitness test and Moyes may be tempted to field the same team that played the last two games prior to the break.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Fabianski; Ngakia, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Bowen, Noble, Rice, Fornals; Antonio, Haller

Doubtful: Ogbonna (Injured)

WOLVES

  • Wolves return to action determined to compete for the Champions League places and they will look to rebuild some momentum as they will likely have benefitted from the break after such a hectic schedule juggling Europe with domestic competitions.
  • Nuno Espirito Santo is fortunate to have a fully-fit squad at his disposal for this game but he will be tempted to name his strongest eleven for this match with any rotations coming against Bournemouth in midfield.
  • Diogo Jota was in sparkling form prior to the break so he will hope to pick up where he left off but star man Adama Traore was struggling with a nagging shoulder problem and the rest should see him return in peak condition.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Rui Patricio; Boly, Coady, Saiss; Doherty, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Jonny; Adama Traore, Jimenez, Diogo Jota

Doubtful:

KEY STATS

  • West Ham have lost 7 of their last 10 matches in all competitions
  • West Ham have scored the first goal in 4 of their last 5 home Premier League matches
  • West Ham have kept 1 clean sheet in their last 12 home matches in all competitions
  • West Ham have only failed to score in 1 of their last 13 Premier League home games
  • There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 7 of West Ham’s last 9 Premier League home games

THE PREDICTION

West Ham continue to struggle and David Moyes will be desperate for his team to start fast and to pick up points as quickly as possible. That may be easier said than done against this talented Wolves team however. They will likely have benefitted from the break after playing an incredible amount of matches already this season and they will be raring to go. They are a class above West Ham and with home advantage nullified to a large extent, Wolves can come away with at least point so consider them draw no bet.
