West Ham vs Accrington Stanley
England – League Cup
Date: Wednesday, 21st September 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK
Venue: London Stadium.
West Ham’s poor form continued last weekend, as they lost 4-2 on the road against West Bromwich Albion. N. Chadli’s spot kick opened the score in the 8th minute as West Brom went on to score 2 more goals in the first half. N. Chadli’s second goal in the 56th minute made it 4-0, later on in the game, M. Antonio and M. Lanzini pulled 2 goals back for West Ham. West Ham have now lost 4 successive games in all competitions and hopes for a revival as they host the League 2 side.
Accrington Stanley will enter this game from a 1-0 victory against Portsmouth, they are currently on a 2 game winning streak. P. Lacey’s goal in the 52nd minute was enough to give Accrington the deserved 3 points over Portsmouth. They will be filled with confidence as they travel to London Stadium to face struggling West Ham, hopping to capitalize on Hammers poor form

West Ham vs Accrington Stanley: Prediction
West Ham have had a very disappointing performance recently, they have lost 4 successive games their last victory was the 1-0 victory against AFC Bournemouth 3 weeks ago. Furthermore, they have conceded at least 2 goals in their last 3 games, but they are not bad upfront as they have scored in each of their last 3 games.
Despite these poor record, West Ham remains the favourites on this fixture. They are up against a League two side, and have no excuse to loose the game considering difference in quality between the two clubs. However, i expect both teams to get on the score sheet.
