West Ham United will clash heads with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to bag all three points on the road and consolidate their strong position in the Premier League table. The Hammers managed to secure an impressive 3-2 victory over Liverpool before the international break which will give them a lot of confidence ahead of this weekend’s clash versus Bruno Lage’s men.

David Moyes is expected to stick with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation and would be forced to make one change to his first XI for this game. Craig Dawson will probably get the nod to start while Issa Diop fills in on the bench.

Defence

Łukasz Fabiański will operate in goal for the Hammers after he shipped in two goals versus the Reds in his last league outing. Angelo Ogbonna is unlikely to recover in time for this game because of a head injury. Thus, we can expect to see Craig Dawson come into the side to operate alongside Kurt Zouma at the heart of the West Ham backline. They will both look to keep things solid at the back this weekend.

Ben Johnson could continue to function as Moyes’ primary right-back while Aaron Cresswell looks to produce a solid showing from the left-back position. Both Issa Diop and Vladimír Coufal will be available for selection on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.

Midfield

Declan Rice is a major doubt for this game as he continues to recover from an illness. If the English midfielder can himself available, he will definitely get the nod to start along with Tomas Soucek at the centre of the park. Pablo Fornals, who is a slight concern due to a knock, Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen will make up Moyes’ attack. All three attackers will be eager to collectively put in a productive display in the Wolves half.

Mark Noble and Manuel Lanzini will have to settle for a spot on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if needed.

Attack

Michail Antonio will lead the charge for the East London giants up top. The English centre-forward failed to register a goal versus Liverpool, so this away game could be a good opportunity for him to return to his goal-scoring ways in the Premier League.
