Paul Merson has made his prediction for the Wolves vs West Ham Premier League clash on Saturday.

The Hammers travel to Molineux to take on Wolves in the three o’clock kick-off on Saturday afternoon.

David Moyes has worked wonders since taking over at the London Stadium for the second time just under two years ago.

West Ham are a proper team now and if Chelsea lose to Leicester in the early kick-off, we can jump up level on points at the top of the Premier League table with a win against Wolves.

Winning at Molineux will be far from easy though.

Bruno Lage has done a fine job since being handed the reigns in the summer and Wolves have made a decent start to their 2021/22 Premier League campaign.

Paul Merson makes Wolves vs West Ham prediction

The Hammers will fancy their chances of beating Wolves. As long as every player puts in the hard yards, there is no reason why we can’t leave the Black Country with maximum points on Saturday.

And Merson thinks that’s exactly what will happen. He told Sportskeeda:

“West Ham United have been outstanding this season in the Premier League and are coming on the back of a deserved victory against Liverpool. They are starting to believe they can secure a top-four finish and it just goes to show how far they’ve come under David Moyes. Considering how well West Ham have done so far, these are the games you have to win to secure a UEFA Champions League spot, with all due respect to Wolves. I expect them to get three points once again and keep their good run of form going.”

Prediction: Wolves 1-2 West Ham

We think that’s a pretty good shout.

The one real worry we have is the fact that Angelo Ogbonna is out injured.

We would say that with so many players returning from international duty we might be slow out of the blocks on Saturday.

That quite simply wasn’t the case against Everton after the previous international break, however.

David Moyes won’t let the players rest on their laurels, that’s for sure.
