The result in the West Ham vs Wolves live stream will likely have a significant bearing on who takes the European places at the end of the Premier League season.
West Ham have had their Champions League aspirations somewhat dented by successive draws against Leicester City and Newcastle United. Indeed, they have only won one of their last five Premier League matches — a 1-0 victory over Watford on February 8. Consequently, they go into this round of fixtures two places and five points behind fourth-placed Manchester United (both teams have played 26 games).
While they sometimes struggle to score, Wolves have become increasingly well organized and difficult to beat under Bruno Lage. However, they did lose to Arsenal for the second time in a month on Thursday, succumbing to a 95th minute own goal. Wolves had beaten Arsenal’s north London rivals Tottenham as well as Leicester City prior to their midweek defeat, though, meaning they are very much in the mix for European football next season. Indeed, so tight is that race that a Wolves win here would see them go above their hosts in the Premier League table. What's more, they'll still have a game in hand on the east London side.
West Ham won this fixture convincingly last season, coming away with a 4-0 victory in September 2020. Prior to that, they had lost three of their last four home league games against Wolves and they still have not beaten Wolves back-to-back in the league since October 2004. The Midlands club did win the reverse fixture in November 2021, though, thanks to a goal from Raul Jimenez. The Mexican striker also scored against West Ham when they won on a visit to the London Stadium in June 2020, but he's only on the bench today.
Midfielders Declan Rice and Jarod Bowen continue to impress for the home side, while defender Craig Dawson has been involved in crucial moments in recent weeks, scoring key goals in the last two games against Leicester and Newcastle.
Here's how they line up:
West Ham: Fabianski, Johnson, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Bowen, Lanzini, Fornals, Antonio.
Wolves: Sa, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Marcal, Neves, Dendoncker, Hoever, Trincao, Silva, Hwang.
Can either of these teams start a run of form that will see them play amongst Europe’s elite next year? Find out by watching the West Ham vs Wolves live stream, which we'll show you how to do below.
