West Ham back to full strength?

West Ham may well be back to full strength at lunchtime as we take on the men from Molineux.

We understand that Kurt Zouma is likely to be back at the centre of defence for the game partnered by Nayef Aguerd and with all eyes again hopefully be on Edson Alvarez whom we will be hoping against hope will be fit following a knock against Freiburg.

Our understanding is the club are pretty hopeful he will make it!

Much has been written about the central defensive performance in midweek against the GermansĀ  following the defeat at Fulham last weekend and the huge difference he made as a result on Thursday.

Having also scored his first Hammers goal and assistedĀ  Mohammad Kudus’ opener he will be a huge miss again if unavailable.

Not only did the game at Craven Cottage see neither James Ward- Prowse or Tomas Soucek be as effective on midfield on an attacking front but that defensively we looked so frail .

Wolves may be currently out of form but they are a battling team and as is always the case will ensure there are no easy Premier League games.

With former Hammers midfielder Gary O’Neil looking for a result against his old team there is bound to be a bigger edge on the game.

However, and I hope I’m not offering the kiss of death on us I am going for a 2-1 Hammers win.
