The early Sunday Premier League game comes from Upton Park where West Ham United will be looking to take advantage of an injury ravaged Hull City. Hull officially have eight players ruled out through injury and will be doing well to fill their bench from their senior squad. With Diame, Jelavich , aluko and Hernandez out there will be a serious lack of attacking options for Steve Bruce's side. Robbie Brady and Tom Ince may end up playing through the center as an unorthodox front two unless one of the injured strikers pulls through a late fitness test. Hull need to win to get out of the relegation zone, the Tigers have found themselves in the midst of an injury crissi and free falling down the league table.
West Ham are in eght in the league table a win tomorrow could see them leap frog Liverpool and Arsenal and into sixth if results go their way. Sam Allardyce men have won six of their last nine at home and only lost one game to Arsenal. Andy Carroll has been brilliant of late an dhis inter link play with Downing and Kevin Nolan has also been tremendous. West Ham have been unlucky in recent weeks not to have more points they dominated games against West Brom and Swansea but just being unable to finish the chances. Carroll has earned a re call to the England team and on his day is almost unplayable.
While the odds are just about playable I am taking WEst Ham here at 7/10. Any shorter and I would say there is no value in the play but I am also going to take West Ham -1 here as I think Hull's injury problems just leave them looking bare up front and I think West Ham will take advantage tomorrow.
