West Ham vs Hull City
England Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 17th December 2016,
Kick-off at 15:00 UK.
Venue: Wembley Stadium, London.
West Ham United will be eyeing nothing less than 3 points when they welcome a troubled Hull City to the Wembley Stadium for Saturday’s Premier League clash.
The Hammers are marred by injuries to key players since the start of the season. And this has certainly affected their progress in the current campaign. They were made to work hard to earn a 1-0 narrow win over Burnley this mid-week. And this is their first win in 7 Premier League matches. The previous 6 is split across 3 draws and 3 losses. The Slaven Bilic managed side is currently 15th in the standings and only 4 points separate them from the relegation zone.
Hull City on the other hand is travelling with a depleted squad since the start of the season as a number of players is still out with injuries. They might have to wait till January for new enforcements to bolster the squad to fight a relegation battle. The Tigers haven’t won in their last 4 matches with 2 draws coming at home. While they had lost their last 6 away matches in the league, most of them by heavy margins. Hull are currently 19th in the league and a 3 point here could get them out of the relegation zone depending on results elsewhere.
