Wolves – West Ham, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR WOLVERHAMPTON - WEST HAM
Wolverhampton achieved a brilliant victory in the last round against Leicester with 4-3, in which they showed great character after several times led in the result and had to get the victory in extra time. Because of this Santo was suspended, but the holes in their defense were obvious due to the lack of Boly, who was suspended. Wolves are very unpredictable at home, because they earn points against better rivals, then they lose against weaker ones.
The big news for West Ham is that instead of leaving for China, Arnautovic signed a new contract and will remain in the club for a long time. This is great news for Pellegrini. West Ham will play with Nasri, Anderson and Snodgrass in an attack behind Arnautovic, so it leaves two typical midfielders in the middle against the rather thick line of Wolves, which is an interesting detail in the match. However, Hammers are only 1 point behind Wolves. They have not scored a goal in visits just 4 times.
The previous game ended in favor of the wolves by 1-0 in London, so now West Ham have to get it back. They have missing defensive players, while Wolverhampton are able to take advantage of the opponent’s mistakes. Because of the likely offensive formations of both teams and generally their playing styles, it is most logical to expect more goals. The hosts will have an advantage in the air, so they can score from a set piece. Prediction Over 2.0 Goals AGL at 1.50
