It has been an interesting few days for West Ham fans, with David Moyes, Issa Diop and Josh Cullen having tested positive for COVID-19 before the 5-1 win against Hull City in the Carabao Cup midweek.
The Hammers would have taken heart from the performances since the disappointing opening day defeat to Newcastle. They were unlucky to lose against Arsenal last time out in the league, and they will be hoping to get some points on the board when they face Wolves at the London Stadium on Sunday.
With regards to injury news, Mark Noble (toe) and Sebastien Haller (hamstring) are both doubts, while Diop is unlikely to feature as he will need to self-isolate for at least ten days.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Wolves:
Fabianski, Fredericks, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Bowen, Soucek, Fornals, Rice, Masuaku, Antonio
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is likely to be without left wingback Marcal who had to be taken off due to a muscular injury in the 3-1 defeat to Manchester City on Monday night.
Jonny Otto is a long-term injury absentee after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury back in August.
Wolves’ Predicted XI:
Rui Patricio, Traore, Boly, Coady, Saiss, Vinagre, Neves, Moutinho, Podence, Jimenez, Neto
The bookmakers have made Wolves the favourites with BetVictor pricing them at 23/20 for the win. A draw is 49/20 with Unibet while a West Ham victory is currently 29/10 at 888 Sport.
Predicted Score – 1-1
