West Ham United vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 27 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium.
The Wanderers were one of the best teams in the PL the last season, and they heartbreakingly had missed out on a European spot in the final game week. They finished level on points with Tottenham, and due to inferior goal difference, they let go of their ambitions to represent England in Europe.
This sense of hurt will surely be fuelling the team, and they will at no cost drop unnecessary points this campaign. On that regards, they are expected to consistently win against the minnows and bottom tier teams. Even a draw against one of these teams could affect their race to qualify for the continent.
And sure enough, the Hammers are one of the minnows in the PL. They had finished 16th in the table in 2019-20, just two spots above the relegation cut-off. To be precise, they had ensured their safety just on the 37th game week.
On top of that, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men also do have a great h2h record against this foe.
Likely, expect a Wolves win this Sunday.
West Ham vs Wolves: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Wanderers are on a four-match winning run against this opponent, and all these were wins to nil.
- It’s been nine years since David Moyes’s men have recorded a league victory against this foe.
- At this stadium, the guests are on a winning run since 2016.
- The latest game at this stadium had ended in a 0-2 win for the visitors.
West Ham vs Wolves: Prediction
The Hammers lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Arsenal. In the meantime, Santos’s men lost 1-3 at home against Manchester City.
While the Wanderers did lose their latest league encounter, it was against the Citizens – one of the best teams in the world. Before that, Santos’s men did win against Sheffield United, and that too with a clean sheet. Do note that the Blades were one of the best defensive sides in the league last year.
Going on, Moyes’s men were winless in 13 of their preceding 20 appearances at home, while their counterparts remained unbeaten in eight of their former eleven road trips.
Importantly, the Wanderers also are on a four-match winning run against this opponent, and they impressively had kept clean sheets in all those games. In addition, they had also won every single h2h meeting at this stadium since 2016.
Taking into account these stats, expect Wolves to deliver a huge performance this weekend – especially with their desire to secure a top-six finish in mind.
