Hull City vs West Ham United
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 1st April 2017
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford).
Both Hull City and West Ham United are plagued by injuries when they lock horns for the match-day 30 fixture of the 2016/2017 English Premier League season.
Hull City suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat in the last league game against an in-form Everton. They were reduced to 10 men at the Goodison Park and conceded 2 goals in the injury time to worsen a defeat that would have otherwise looked decent.
The Tigers are fighting to avoid relegation since the start of the season. But they are an improved side under the tutelage of Portuguese tactician Marco Silva. Yet, they sit 18th on the log needing another 4 point to get out of the danger zone.
Hull are unbeaten at home since the New Year picking up 5 wins and 2 draws from 7 matches in all competitions.
On the other hand, West Ham were beaten 3-2 by a resurrected Leicester City in their last Premier League game. They conceded 3 goals in the first half and looked set for a heavy battering. But goals from Lanzini and Ayew rescued some pride for the Hammers.
West Ham lost three league games on the bounce and are without a win in their last 5. The recent misfortunes keep them at a mediocre 9th position in the league table.
Hull Vs West Ham: Head-to-head
West Ham United are unbeaten in the last four games against Hull City with 3 wins and a draw. All the three wins are at home, with the lone visit to Kcom stadium ending in a high scoring 2-2 draw.
Hull vs West Ham: Predictions
Both sides are in desperate need of a win. But Hull City look the hungrier of the two. They will be boosted by the added advantage of playing in front of their home fans. Nevertheless, the neutrals can expect for a cracking game. And it will be beneficial to back Hull City to grab all three points in their lengthy battle for safety in the Premier League.
