- West Ham will be desperately hoping that the international break can serve as a reset for them after a horribly disappointing domestic season which sees them currently 18th-place in the league table.
- Centre-back Nayef Aguerd is back on the grass, but still not ready to play any first-team football and fellow defender Ben Johnson will also miss this one, although his recovery time is shorter than that of Aguerd.
- Bruno Lage is coming under huge pressure at misfiring Wolves, who would drop into the bottom three should they be beaten here at London Stadium, which could even cost the Portuguese boss his job.
- New signing Diego Costa could make his first appearance in a Wolves shirt since joining as a free agent, provided he can prove his fitness beforehand.

The biggest kryptonite for both these two sides so far this season has been goals. West Ham and Wolves have each found the net just three times in the 2022-23 Premier League, the joint-lowest of any team and has led to them winning just one game apiece. A turgid contest could be in the offering here with nerves potentially a factor as the consequences of a defeat in this one is unlikely to be lost on both sets of players. It would be no surprise to them West Ham and Wolves firing blanks from an attacking perspective once again and backing under 2.5 goals to be scored over 90 minutes is well worth backing, regardless of who comes out on top.
TIP: UNDER 2.5 GOALS
