Opinion: Wolves can blow West Ham away if they can match Manchester City display

Wolves have had a fairly good start to the new Premier League season having taken points from games against Everton and Manchester City.

However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are still looking for their first three points of the campaign and will hope to find them when they take on West Ham at the London Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

And, after their recent display against champions Manchester City, Wolves will be confident going into their match with Manuel Pellegrini’s struggling side.

The Hammers have zero points on the board after three games — although they have had to play both Liverpool and Arsenal away — and are in for a difficult test when Wolves make the trip to east London.

In the 1-1- draw between Wolves and Manchester City, the 2018 Championship winners put in a very defensively disciplined performance against Pep Guardiola’s team, while managing to still be a threat on the counter-attack.

Club-record signing Adama Traore, in particular, was impressive when he came on and it could be a long afternoon at the London Stadium for Arthur Masuaku should the Spaniard be given his first league start of the season.

As well as Traore, fellow summer addition Joao Moutinho also looked sharp, providing the assist for Willy Boly’s controversial goal and the game’s opener.

Ultimately, Wolves have more than enough in their arsenal to hurt West Ham and take all three points on Saturday at a time where the Hammers look vulnerable.
