Wolves vs West Ham Preview

  • Tournament – Premier League
  • Date – Saturday, April 06, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 03:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Molineux Stadium

West Ham will be bidding to increase their lead over Newcastle United in the league table with a win over Wolves this weekend at the Molineux Stadium. They are seventh in the league standings, 14 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa and three points above hosts Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Hammers have picked up only three points from the last available twelve and will need to bounce back to winning ways if they were to finish in the Europa Conference League spot.

They will then take on Wolves, who have been languishing in 10th position in the Premier League table. Their European hopes still remain alive as they are only three points behind West Ham. Wolves have lost to West Ham in their reverse fixture earlier this season. But they have the opportunity to go level on points with David Moyes’ men if they are able to secure the maximum points at home this Saturday.

West Ham are expected to be out with their first-team goalkeeper Alphonse Areola who’s nursing a minor thigh injury. Łukasz Fabiański is set to take over the goalkeeping duties at the Molineux. Midfielder Edson Álvarez will return this weekend after serving a suspension in the midweek tie against Burnley.

On the other hand, Wolves will be without Pedro Neto and Hwang Hee-chan for several weeks but the latter is expected to be back in the fold sooner. But players like  Craig Dawson and Jean-Ricner Bellegarde remain injury doubts for this home tie. Tommy Doyle will start in the central midfield with Joao Gomes.

Wolves are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture. They will enter this game off the back of a 1-1 draw with Burnley in the midweek clash. Gary O’Neil’s side are struggling these past few weeks as they have only managed only one win in their last five matches in all competitions.

Meanwhile, West Ham have also failed to gather any consistent runs this season and are on a four-game winless run in England’s top-flight. The Hammers are a better team on paper and will be able to grind out a positive result.

Predicted Score: Wolves 1-1 West Ham
