West Ham United is welcoming Wolverhampton to London Stadium in round 30 of the English Premier League.
West Ham is also one of the teams that were in a terrible form before the season was paused, so that forced break might have actually been a good thing for West Ham. From their last 6 games in the EPL, West Ham has won only 1 game and that was against Southampton at home. With 27 points, West Ham is in 16th place in the standings and they have the same amount of points as Bournemouth in the relegation zone. Offensively, West Ham was decent with 35 scored goals, while their defense has been a disaster with 50 conceded goals. The EPL is the only competition West Ham is playing in for the rest of the season, which is a good thing for them because they can focus only on the EPL and stay outside the relegation zone. In their last EPL game against Arsenal on the road, the Hammers have had only 32% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, and 69% of the correct passes. West Ham has lost this game 1-0. Haller has scored 7 goals for West Ham this season, while Snodgrass added 5 goals. There are no injuries or suspensions in West Ham’s roster. I believe that West Ham has enough quality and depth in their roster to stay in the EPL next season as well.
Wolverhampton is a great team that can beat anyone, and they are having a solid season. The Wolves are in 7th place in the standings with 43 points, 41 scored goals, and 34 conceded goals. In the Europa League, Wolverhampton is playing against Olympiacos, and the first leg of the Round of 16 ended in a 1-1 draw. The second leg was postponed. In the EPL, Wolverhampton hasn’t lost any of their last 5 games. Raul Jimenez has scored 13 goals for Wolverhampton this season, while Jota added 6 goals. Adama Traore and Moutinho each have 7 assists. Ofosu Ayeh is the only injured player for Wolverhampton. In their last EPL game against Brighton at home, Wolverhampton has had 43% of ball possession, 1 shot on target, 2 corner kicks, and 75% of the correct passes. This match ended in a 0-0 draw. Many teams have good, even great players on their roster, but Wolverhampton has a coach that knows how to get the maximum out of their player, and that is Nuno Espirito Santo, a Portuguese expert who has been coaching at Wolverhampton for a few years now, and with every season, Wolverhampton is getting better. The Wolves are only 5 points away from the Champions League spot, and they can certainly get there.
West Ham has had success against Wolverhampton at home, but they were in a bad form and we can’t know if that improved. Wolverhampton’s away record this season is 5-6-3. Neither West Ham nor Wolverhampton played a game in over 3 months, and that makes me think this one could end in a draw.
