Wolves v West Ham: Dinos has raised his game and currently looks like Hammers best defender

The 26-year-old Greek international initially found himself on the bench following his arrival from VfB Stuttgart last year. However, his impressive performance in the 2-0 home win against Manchester United proved to be a turning point. This was followed by five consecutive Premier League starts, solidifying his position in the team. Mavropanos’ growing confidence is further evidenced by his recent run of six consecutive games, playing the full 90 minutes in each.

Despite the 1-1 stalemate against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night, Mavropanos believes the team can take heart from their performance.

The defence must work against Wolves

West Ham’s next challenge comes in the form of a crucial away trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers today. While he did not feature in the December fixture against Wolves, Mavropanos is eager to make his mark this time around. He acknowledges the challenge that Wolves presents, as they are also in the hunt for European qualification.

Mavropanos credits manager David Moyes for his guidance in helping him adjust to the team’s philosophy and build understanding with his teammates.

A win against Wolves would be a significant boost for West Ham’s hopes of securing a fourth consecutive season of European football. Moreover, it would also dent the European aspirations of a direct competitor currently just four points behind them in the standings. Mavropanos is also looking to make a bigger contribution than he did in the 3-0 win over Wolves in December.

Three points at Molineux would be a major step forward for West Ham in their pursuit of European football. With Mavropanos’ growing confidence and the team’s desire to return to winning ways, the Hammers appear well-prepared for the crucial matches ahead.

The West Ham latest news on injuries would indicate that Nayef Aguerd could be ready for the Premier League game today. However one thing is for certainĀ  . . . it won’t be Mavropanos who misses out.
