West Ham United Vs Hull City Preview, Trivia, Predicted Line-Ups, Odds

West Ham United probably have the best chance to edge their way away from the drop zone as a beleaguered Hull City outfit come visiting the London Stadium. The Hammers will be feeling a bit better about themselves after picking up 4 points from the last 2 matches and will be quietly confident regarding getting a positive result tomorrow. They have the likes of Andy Carroll and Andre Ayew back which has given them depth in attacking reserves, which was sorely missing initially.

Hull City, meanwhile, are on a run of six successive away defeats in the Premier League and they have failed to score in the last four of these. Naturally, it will be an uphill task for them but if they can recreate the spirit and the effort which saw them start the season with back to back wins, an upset can be on the cards.
