West Ham are going to be wanting to restart their Premier League campaign with a win against Norwich City,
with David Moyes’ side sitting above the relegation zone on goal difference alone.
West Ham United face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday evening trying to find the win which can provide them with some breathing space above the Premier League relegation zone.
As for the visitors, they visit the London Stadium knowing that maximum points are likely required if they need to stay pace with the teams above them who are chasing a Champions League spot.
Meanwhile, Nuno Espirito Santos and Wolves resume their campaign in seventh place, just five points off Chelsea in fourth.
It’s the away side who got the higher of their opponents last outing with a 2-0 win at Molineux,
and it might be the right time for West Ham to avenge the loss.
West Ham gave good accounts of themselves against Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal respectively,
while also earning a much-needed 3-1 convert Southampton.
Although the East Londoners only remain out of the relegation zone on goal difference,
there’ll be belief within their ranks that points are often accumulated against Wolves, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea respectively.
Moyes also will hope that summer arrival Sebastien Haller can devour where he left off before the break after ending an eight-match streak without finding the rear of internet .
