Predicted West Ham XI vs Wolves – team and injury news

West Ham United return to Premier League action this weekend as they look to build on their fine form.

Indeed, David Moyes has steered his side to third in the table after just 11 matches, and now they head to the Midlands to face Wolverhampton Wanderers following the international break.

Last time out, the Irons defeated Liverpool 3-2, but that came at a price after Angelo Ogbonna was ruled out for the season with a devastating ACL injury.

That means the 58-year-old has plenty to ponder about team selection heading into kick-off, so what sort of XI could we see at Molineux today? Here’s what we are predicting…

There could be just the one change to the side which beat Jurgen Klopp’s Reds nearly two weeks ago.

With the Italian colossus on the treatment table for the foreseeable future, Moyes has to decide whether it’ll be Craig Dawson or Issa Diop taking Ogbonna’s place.

The latter could well get the nod, partnering fellow countryman Kurt Zouma in the heart of defence. They are joined by Aaron Cresswell on the left and Ben Johnson on the right as the Scotsman continues to make a big call on the academy gem, leaving Vladimir Coufal on the bench as he misses out again.

They will sit in front of Lukasz Fabianski.

Further afield, Declan Rice and Thomas Soucel should marshal the midfield. The England international had to withdraw from Gareth Southgate’s recent squad through illness, even if he played against Liverpool with the same issue, but he is expected to be fit and available here today.

Pablo Fornals completes the central area, with Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen on either flank.

Can you name all 10 ex-Hammers? First up... He assisted the first goal at the London Stadium but made only 8 appearances for the Irons, who is he?

Up top, Michail Antonio will continue to lead the line after his goalscoring exploits for Jamaica. He made it back in time courtesy of a private jet from West Ham owner David Sullivan.

Moyes will be relieved to have the £12.5m-rated talisman, recently dubbed a “complete monster” and “absolute revelation” by journalist Paul Brown to GIVEMESPORT, available this afternoon.
