West Ham United vs Wolves: Preview
The Wanderers were one of the best teams in PL last season, having missed a European spot in the final week of the game. They ended up tied on points with Tottenham, and due to a lower goal difference gave up their ambitions to represent England in Europe.
This sense of injury is sure to fuel the team, and it will lose unnecessary points this season at no cost. In this sense, they must always win against minnows and lower-level teams. Even a draw against either of these teams could affect your career to qualify for the continent.
And, of course, hammers are one of PL’s minnows. They finished 16th in the rankings in 2019-20, just two places above the relegation threshold. To be precise, they had ensured their safety only in week 37 of the match.
On top of that, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men also have an excellent h2h record against this enemy.
Probably expect a Wolves win this Sunday.

West Ham vs Wolves: Prediction
The Hammers lost 2-1 on the road on the last day, against Arsenal. Meanwhile, Santos’ men lost 1-3 at home to Manchester City.
Although the Wanderers lost their last league game, it was against the Citizens, one of the best teams in the world. Before that, Santos’s men had won against Sheffield United, and that too with a clean sheet. Keep in mind that the Blades were one of the best defensive teams in the league last year.
Separately, Moyes’ men were winless in 13 of their previous 20 home appearances, while their counterparts have gone undefeated in eight of their previous eleven road trips.
Importantly, the Wanderers are also on a four-game winning streak against this opponent, and have notably kept a clean sheet in all of those games. Furthermore, they had also won every H2H meeting at this stadium since 2016.
Considering those stats, expect the Wolves to put on a great performance this weekend, especially with their desire to be in the top six in mind.
