After eight years of successful competition in the Premier League since their promotion in 2012, all could come to fall for the Hammers. The Hammers take on high flying Wolves this Saturday at the London Stadium with kickoff at 16:30 GMT.
The Hammers were having their worst season since their 2010-2011 season when they faced relegation—the side ties with side Bournemouth with 27 points in the relegation battle. David Moyes sets to make a comeback from the Premier League to restart a strong one.
The last outing for the side ended in a 1-0 loss to Arsenal. The loss deepened the side’s inconsistent form. Wrangles at the side and an unhappy dressing room have been significant issues the side has had to battle with.
Wolves, on the other hand, are having a blast in the Premier with the battle for Europa Football. The side is seventh on the table with 43 points. The side is only five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and two points against side Manchester United.
Coach Nuno Santo is having the best time at the club with the side still in the race for Europa title. Their last outing in March ended in a 0-0 draw to side Brighton. The side receives significant injury boosts in the squad with a fully fit team.

Right-back, Jeremy Ngakia’s contract situation is giving David Moyes sleepless nights. The youngster earlier retracted on his contract extension at the club. If he fails to extend his contract, it will see the star walkout as a free agent next month. The star has been battling to find first-team eligibility, often falling second to veteran Zabaleta with the injury of Fredericks.

Left-winger Diego Jota elicited a lot of interest from other English clubs after a series of impressive performances. The star sets to continue with his form at the club with Santo fending off any interests. Another pop-up talent from the side has been the sprint demon, Adama Traore, with Barcelona and Liverpool interested in his services.

Wolves are in the front-run to pull off a win, especially with the issues the Hammers are trying to fix from staff to players.
