Football pundits Mark Lawrenson and Charlie Nicholas are both in agreement over West Ham United ahead of tonight’s clash with Wolves.
“As good as West Ham were in Saturday’s win over Chelsea, I really have no idea what they are going to do next and whether they are going to play very well, or very badly, Wolves are far more reliable, as in they are a very consistent side. They are also on a very good run, and have not lost any of their past nine Premier League games – I would be surprised if they don’t make that 10.” Lawrenson told his BBC website readers when predicting a 2-0 loss for the Hammers tonight.
Charlie Nicholas told his Sky Sports website readers predicting a 2-1 loss for West Ham. “What a result for West Ham at Chelsea, Manuel Pellegrini was on the brink of losing his job and his side pulled something out of the hat for him. They got their shape right, defended well and were a threat on the counter-attack. They do have a softness about them, though.
“Michail Antonio brings the power and strength but West Ham are too nice. Sebastien Haller has gone cold and Felipe Anderson has been poor. You have to take them out of the team, work with them on the basics, and build them up again.
“I have never seen it (the Premier League) this tight… I expect Wolves to come through this.”
