West Ham vs Wolves prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out today?

Wolves travel to West Ham United on Saturday afternoon as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side look to continue their pursuit of a European spot.

Having gone undefeated in their last five league games prior to the enforced break, Wolves trail fourth-placed Chelsea by just five points heading into the weekend.

However, for West Ham, it’s a drastically different picture as the club finds itself mired in another relegation battle.

Only goal difference currently separates David Moyes’s side from the bottom three, while fixtures against Tottenham and Chelsea follow.

Here is everything you need to know:

When is it and what time is kick-off?

The match will begin at 5.30pm at the London Stadium on Saturday 20 June.

How can I watch it online and on TV?

The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

What is the team news?

Jeremy Ngakia is unlikely to feature after the teenage full-back informed West Ham that he will no be signing a new contract with the club. There is also concern over an injury to Angelo Ogbonna, however, the centre-back is expected to make the starting line-up.

Jonny Otto missed Wolves’s last four games but has recovered over the enforced break. Morgan Gibbs-White is also set to return after an injury layoff.

What are the predicted line-ups?

West Ham: Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Soucek, Fornals, Bowen, Antonio

Wolves: Patricio, Jonny, Saiss, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Moutinho, Neves, Jota, Traore, Jimenez

What are the odds?

West Ham – 23/10

Draw – 23/10

Wolves – 6/5


Despite West Ham’s desperation to get points on the board, Wolves are an incredibly well-drilled and disciplined side – a strength that will only be enhanced as players return rusty from the break – and the pace of Adama Traore and finishing of Raul Jimenez should be capable of exploiting the holes in Moyes’s side.
