Wolves vs West Ham UnitedEnglish Premier League, KO: 20:15 Apr 5, 2021, Molineux
WEST HAM are just two points away from a sensational Champions League spot and they will see their trip to Molineux on Monday night as a massive chance to move closer to their dream.
David Moyes' side were given next to no chance to make a top four spot at the start of the season and indeed were tipped to struggle.
But the Scot has masterminded a superb season for the Hammers and they are in fifth place going into the weekend fixtures and just two points behind Chelsea in that all-important fourth place spot.
Wolves' season has been a bit meh, frankly after last term's exploits. It's all been slightly anti-climatic and that's reflected in their 13th spot. Too far behind to dream of another European spot, but surely safe from trouble barring a catastrophic loss of form.
Moyes welcomed back nine players from international duty. Of those, Declan Rice and Jesse Lingard both won Man of the Match awards with England and Tomas Soucek hit a hat-trick for the Czechs.
How the bookies view it?
West Ham are favourites and can be backed at 31/20 with Toneybet. The hosts are 2/1 with Hill's and the draw is 9/1 with Unibet.
Recent head to heads
West Ham have never done a top-flight double over Wolves, but have the chance to put that right, having won 4-0 at the London Stadium in September. Previously though, Wolves had won the last four meetings between the sides.
Players to watch
No one has been prolific for Wolves this season and their joint top scorers are Pedro Neto and Ruben Neves with only five league goals. Neto is a best-priced 7/2 with Unibet.
Tomas Soucek seems to impress more with every game. As well as that international hat-trick against Estonia, he netted in West Ham's last game against Arsenal and is of interest at 7/2 with bet365 to score.
Anything else catch the eye?
Wolves have only scored 15 goals in 14 home games and the Hammers have 19 in 14, so it's unlikely to be a repeat of West Ham's last game which was a thrilling 3-3 draw with Arsenal.
However, West Ham are also top of the both teams to score league with just over 55 per cent of the games seeing that stat and the 11/10 with SportNation is a solid shout.
West Ham have been really good on their travels against the so-called lesser lights in the Premiership. If you look at their away defeats, it's been at both Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea. They are good at getting the job done against the weaker teams and they do appeal to win.
They are usually good for a first half goal too – they are fourth in the half time table. They are 5/4 to score in the first 45 minutes with bet365.
