David Moyes has stuck by the tried and tested Hammers as expected for a vital clash against Wolves this afternoon in what amounts to a safety first line up.

Unsurprisingly Said Benrahma fails to make the starting line up which may or may not be as a result of a possible confrontation between him and the manager when subbed in the second half against Newcastle.

Ben Johnson – as the only available right back comes in for Vladi Coufal with Fredericks injured – whilst the rest of the 11 is as expected.

Wolves boss Bruno Lage, however,  has made five changes to the team defeated in the fifth minute of injury time by Arsenal on Thursday night – only Wolves’ second loss in their last nine Premier League games.

Full-back Nelson Semedo, who exited the field at the Emirates through injury, drops out of the team, along with Rayan Aït-Nouri, Daniel Podence, João Moutinho and Raúl Jiménez – the latter four are all on the bench.
Coming into the side are Ki-Jana Hoever, Leander Dendoncker, Marçal, Francisco Trincao and Fábio Silva.
The young Portuguese became Wolves’ all-time record signing when he joined from Porto in September 2020 for a reported £35million, but is still biding his time at the age of 19 and is awaiting his first goal this season.
