Moyes makes 9 changes, £22.5m-rated ace dropped & no Issa Diop: Predicted West Ham XI vs Wolves

West Ham United are seeking their first points of the new Premier League season this evening as they welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to the London Stadium.

David Moyes’ men have lost both their opening fixtures, which puts them in a precarious position at the bottom end of the table.

And it appears things won’t get any easier with a rampant Wolves in town, the first of six games against last season’s top eight.

So with the Hammers performing in the cup, but not the league, what sort of side will lineup here tonight?

Well, despite not being in attendance, Moyes could make as many as nine changes to the side that thrashed Hull City in midweek.

Between the sticks, number one shot-stopper Lukas Fabianski returns whilst only Fabian Balbuena keeps his place from that Carabao Cup victory, meaning Aaron Cresswell and Ryan Fredericks take up spots on the flanks with Angelo Ogbonna partnering the 29-year-old.

There is no place for £22m man Issa Diop.

The Irons could revert back to their regular midfield three, which includes skipper Mark Noble playing slightly more advanced of the coveted Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

Despite bagging in midweek, Sebastien Haller is dropped to the bench at the expense of Michail Antonio whilst Andriy Yarmelenko is the only other player to keep his place.

He’ll partner Jarrod Bowen on the wings.

It also means the likes of £22.5m-rated Felipe Anderson, Jack Wilshere, Manuel Lanzini and Robert Snodgrass are all out of the starting lineup whilst there is no place for Pablo Fornals due to the Ukrainian’s inclusion.

AND in other news, Hammers keen on late move for £35k-p/w record-breaker…
