According to a report from Football.London, David Moyes trusts Aaron Cresswell more than he does Arthur Masuaku.

So it seems as though the 30-year-old will be starting ahead of the Democratic Republic of Congo international against Wolves tomorrow.

But that could end up being disastrous, with the fleet-footed Adama Traore set to start for the visitors.

The 24-year-old has been unplayable for Wolves at times this season.

He is arguably the fastest and most powerful player in the Premier League.

And the thought of Cresswell coming up against the former Barcelona ace is a really frightening one for Hammers fans.

Traore has racked up four goals and seven assists in 28 Premier League games for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

And he has firmly established himself as a Molineux favourite.

The 24-year-old has the ability to cause West Ham all sorts of problems at the London Stadium tomorrow.

And perhaps Moyes’s trust in Cresswell will come back to bite him.

Masuaku, who joined the Hammers for £6m in the summer of 2016 (Sky Sports) is certainly not as good as the Liverpool-born ace defensively. But he is a lot quicker and more mobile.

The 26-year-old will stand a far greater chance of keeping up with Adama than Cresswell.

Perhaps Moyes should consider starting the former Olympiacos man against Wolves. At the very least, the Scot should be open to the idea of doubling up on the Spaniard, and playing Masuaku in a slightly more advanced position in front of Cresswell.

If he doesn’t, West Ham could be in real trouble tomorrow.
