Blow for Wolves as key man reportedly could miss huge West Ham clash with what has been described as an ‘unknown’ injury.

The Hammers head to Molineux to take on Wolves on Saturday for arguably our biggest game of the season to date.

David Moyes’s men are currently sitting in 17th spot in the Premier League table, one point clear of Wolves in 19th spot.

Nothing less than a win will do, if we are to have any chance of securing a top 10 finish this season. More importantly though, we absolutely must not lose the game, if we are to avoid a relegation scrap.

Wolves have actually been playing some decent stuff of late and with Julen Lopetegui now at the helm, they are incredibly hard to beat as well.

There is some good news for the Hammers though…

Wolves have injury problem ahead of West Ham clash

Diego Costa could be unavailable for Wolves for Saturday’s clash with the Hammers.

That’s according to Football.London who claim that the ex-Chelsea striker is suffering from an injury that is not yet known to the public.

The 34-year-old forward has proven to be a key man for a Wolves, despite being having failed to score for the Black Country outfit so far.

Costa always occupies opposing defenders with his tenacious approach to the game, and he undoubtedly would have given the West Ham back-line all sorts of problems on Saturday.

It seems as though he won’t be playing against the Hammers though, unless something changes over the next 48 hours.

And that is really good news for West Ham, and terrible news for Wolves.
