Lawro predictions: Mark Lawrenson has backed West Ham United to beat Wolves tomorrow afternoon at the London Stadium.
Tomorrow’s game is an absolutely huge one for the Hammers. Nothing less than a win will do against Wolves.
Tottenham won today but Manchester United drew so it wasn’t all bad for us this afternoon.
David Moyes’s men are in the midst of a really poor run of form having taken just five points from our last five games.
Wolves, meanwhile, have been really strong, and despite losing to Arsenal on Thursday night, they have won six out of their last nine Premier League games.
Bruno Lage has worked wonders since taking over at Molinuex and his side are currently sitting in eighth spot in the Premier League table, two points and two places adrift of West Ham, with a game in hand over us.
Lawro predictions – West Ham vs Wolves
Wolves will represent a really tough test for us tomorrow afternoon.
If all of our players are 100% on it though, we have more than enough about us to beat the Black Country side.
And Lawrenson backed West Ham to beat Wolves, when writing his regular prediction column for BBC Sport:
“Wolves are always tough to beat but they played on Thursday at Arsenal, which will help West Ham who have had a full week off to prepare for this. The Hammers need a win too, after two draws in a row. Those weren’t bad results in isolation but if they want to maintain their challenge for fourth place, then they can’t afford to drop any more points this weekend.”
Lawro’s prediction: 2-1
That would do us just fine.
The result is of course all that matters but it would be nice to see us put in a top-class performance as well. It seems like it’s been so long since we’ve actually played well doesn’t it!
West Ham have the players to hurt Wolves. We did the double over them last season although we did lose 1-0 at Molineux in November this term.
If the Hammers are to remain in the race for the top four or even the top six, then a win tomorrow will be the only acceptable result.
