West Ham United vs Wolverhampton

On Sunday, West Ham United will unsheathe their ‘swords’ against the ferocious ‘Wolves’ for some unfinished business. The Hammers come off a 1-0 loss to Arsenal in their last league match leaving them with 4L, 1D and 1W in six league games; LDLLWL. Sitting on the 16th position on the league table, this will be West Ham’s 30th league appearance of the season. With just a few games to go, Moyes knows he must find a victory against Wolves to remain above the relegation zone. He will be counting on the boots of Sebastien Haller who has 7 goals for the Hammers this season and Robert Snodgrass with 5 goals to find the back of the net against Wolves. West Ham have a 1.2 gpg ratio and a 45.5% ball possession this season with 27 points acquired from 29 league appearances.

Meanwhile, Wolves return to football action after a goal less draw in their last Premier league match against Brighton. That was their second draw in six league games; LLDWWD. Now Nuno Espirito Santo will be looking for a victory against a side which he has already beaten once this season. A 3-4-3 formation, placing Jimenez, Traore and Neto who scored in Wolves’ last match against Olympiacos in his three-man attack while the four of Jonny – Moutinho – Neves – Doherty remain in the midfield. Saiss – Coady – Dendoncker in defense and Ruddy in goal. Wolves will be looking to send West Ham into the relegation zone by picking up all 3 points against them on Sunday. Wolves have a 1.4 gpg ratio and an average ball possession of 47.6% this season with 43 points acquired from 29 league appearances.

The last time both sides met in the Premier league it ended 2-0 in favor of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Goals from Leander Dendoncker (23’) and Patric Cutrone (86’) gave Wolves the victory. West Ham had 51% ball possession while Wolves had 49%. West Ham took 6 shots and had 3 on target while their counterparts, Wolverhampton took 13 shots and had 7 on target. The Hammers completed 496 passes while Wolves completed 479 successful passes.

It’s likely we will see a similar result just like their last encounter. A 2-1 victory for Wolves is expected at the end of this fixture.
