Wolverhampton will be visiting the Capital city of London this Sunday, as it takes on hosts West Ham for a key clash in the English Premier League 2021-22 season.
Both the teams are ferociously locked in a battle with three other teams to secure the fourth spot on the table, and automatic promotion to the Champions League. The spot is currently occupied by Manchester United, which has 46 points from 26 games, and West Ham is close behind at 5th place with 42 points.
The Hammers squandered an early advantage as they hit a rough patch at the wrong time. Going into this game, the hosts have managed to win just 1 out of its last 5 games. They would be particularly disappointed with the outcome of their last game against relegation-threatened Newcastle United, who managed to hold them to a thrilling 1-1 draw. With the fifth-round game of the FA Cup against Southampton lined up next, West Ham will be looking to get back to winning ways with this game.
The visitors on the other hand have been silently making their way up the points table, and are currently at the 7th spot with 40 points. While they are trailing the Red Devils and West Ham by 6 and 2 points respectively, to its advantage, Wolverhampton has played 2 games fewer than both of them.
Talking about the recent form, barring the loss against Arsenal, the team has not lost any other game since the middle of December and will go into this match on the back of two consecutive victories against Tottenham and Leicester City.
Match prediction and betting tips for West Ham United F. C. vs Wolverhampton Wanderers F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the London Stadium, London, on 27th February 2022.
West Ham coach David Moyes will need to think out of the box and take some tough decisions before this weekend if he really wants to arrest the current slide that the team is on. He is expected to put up a 4-3-3 formation in this game, with Declan Rice, Pablo Fornals, and Manuel Lanzini in the middle. Angelo Ogbonna is likely to give this game a miss due to injury, and Tomas Soucek is likely to be dropped due to his poor form.
As for Bruno Lage, he will be pretty happy with the team’s performance of late and is unlikely to tinker much with the balance of this winning combination. Matija Sarkic, Willy Boly, and Yerson Mosquera are unlikely to make this trip.
The game promises to be a closely fought encounter, but West Ham, which is playing with the home advantage, is likely to collect 3 much-needed points in what looks like to be a low-scoring affair.
Bet on a West Ham United win.
Only one team has scored in four out of the previous five times that West Ham and Wolverhampton have played against each other. It does appear as if home advantage plays a major role in this encounter and the stakes on this game are pretty high as well. All of this makes us think that the odds on offer for both teams not scoring are pretty good.
