West Ham vs Wolves team news

West Ham

West Ham were soundly beaten away at Fulham last weekend, going down by five goals to nil.

The Hammers were also involved in midweek European action against Freiburg, running out 2-0 winners but picking up an injury to Edson Alvarez who could now miss the game against Wolves along with Michail Antonio.

Predicted Lineup: Fabiański (GK), Emerson, Coufal, Mavropanos, Aguerd, Ward-Prowse, Souček, Fornals, Paquetá, Kudus & Bowen

Wolves

Wolves played host to Nottingham Forest in their last league game. The home side slipped behind after fourteen minutes but a goal from Matheus Cunha made it 1-1 before the break. No further goals were scored in a tight and tense second half so the game ended all square.

Jonny Castro, Joseph Hodge, Pedro Neto and Rayan Ait-Nouri are the only injury concerns for the visitors ahead of their trip to the capital this weekend.

Predicted Lineup: Sá (GK), Dawson, Semedo, Kilman, T. Gomes, Bueno, Sarabia, Lemina, J. Gomes, Hwang & Cunha

Player to Watch: Vladimir Coufal

West Ham's Czech right-back has been in good form this season, charging up the right flank to help David Moyes' side out in the final third.

Not always seen as an attacking full-back, Coufal has chipped in with as many assists in the Premier League as James Ward-Prowse this season (5), and we're backing the in-form defender to get forward and cause a leaky Wolves defence plenty of issues this weekend.

Coufal has never scored in the league for West Ham before but this season could be the one where he finally sends the West-Ham faithful wild.
