West Ham look to continue their impressive position in the top four of the Premier League as they face Wolves at Molineux on Saturday.

The Hammers have gone from strength to strength and truly picked up where they left off last season – currently three points behind London neighbours Chelsea – while Wolves currently lie in eighth position.


Following the appointment of Bruno Lage, Wolves’ luck has began to turn for the better, having won four of their last six Premier League games with just one defeat in the process.

Wolves’ last outing before the international break ended in a 2-0 defeat away to Crystal Palace with goals from Wilfried Zaha and Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher, though a victory over West Ham could take them into fifth providing results go their way.

Prior to their defeat, Wolves were on an impressive five-game unbeaten run in the league which is a stark contrast to how they began the season following a tricky fixture list, though with their talisman Raul Jimenez back and firing, the feeling around Wolves is a far better one than before.

West Ham

David Moyes’ side have been in incredible form so far after winning seven and losing just two of their opening 11 Premier League games which leaves them just three points shy of the league leaders Chelsea.

Having inflicted Liverpool’s first loss of the season at the London Stadium during their impressive 3-2 victory, it means they are now seven matches unbeaten in all competitions, while making it to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup and already booking their place in the Europa League knock-out phase.

The Hammers have enjoyed three successive victories against Wolves in the league, and with both sides in excellent form, the fixture should prove to be an exciting match-up.

Team news

West Ham will be without Angelo Ogbonna for the months ahead after the defender suffered a serious knee injury recently, while Declan Rice is expected to be available despite pulling out of England squad through illness.

Their top scorer Michail Antonio is fresh off impressive performances while representing Jamaica, scoring two goals in the process and looking to add to his six Premier League goals this season.

As for Wolves, they will be without Pedro Neto, Jonny Castro, Fernando Marcal and Hugo Bueno this weekend, though the four remain the only players unavailable for Bruno Lage.

The Portuguese manager is expected to go with his usual front three of Raul Jimenez, Hwang Hee-chan and Francisco Trincao.

Wolves vs West Ham – kick off at 3pm (UK time) on Saturday 20th November 2021
