West Ham take on Wolves in the Premier League tomorrow night.

The Hammers currently sit in 13th spot in the table, seven places and four points adrift of the Black Country outfit.

The BBC’s Mark Lawrenson and Sky Sports’ Charlie Nicholas both predicted a home win for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

Here’ three reasons why they could be proved wrong, however…

Manuel Pellegrini’s side were excellent against the Blues on Saturday. They put in the perfect away performance, and thoroughly deserved all three points.

If the Hammers replicate that display at Molineux tomorrow night, they will have every chance of beating Wolves. The West Ham players will be full of confidence, and will know that a win will put them right back into contention for the European places.


One more rest day than Wolves

The east London outfit played on Saturday, whereas Wolves didn’t play until Sunday, meaning that the hosts only have three days rest before they host the Hammers.

In a league as intense and unforgiving as the Premier League, this could prove to be vital come match-day.

The Spaniard has been in absolutely woeful form for West Ham over the past two months.

It has been too easy for pundits to predict the Hammers losing over the last six or seven games, but with David Martin now between the sticks, Pellegrini’s side will have a great chance of taking maximum points form their clash with Wolves.

West Ham could, of course, still lose to Wolves. If they are not at the races, they will struggle against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

If the Hammers are at it from the first whistle, however, there is every chance that they will make it two wins in a row.
