What are the match odds?

West Ham are favourites at 20/23 with Wolves 10/3 and the draw priced at 12/5.

What are the camps saying?

David Moyes:

"We've got two Premier League games at home coming up, so we're looking forward to getting back to the London Stadium. We're in good spirits and hopefully we're good to go.

"I think if you look back a couple of years, if you'd said West Ham had gone this far up the table you'd say that's really good.

"We want to challenge there, we want to stay there. We haven't got off to as good a start as we've wanted."

Bruno Lage:

“We cannot deny it’s an important game for us. We go there to play our game, we go there with big ambition.

"We played two good games against West Ham (last season) and we go there to do our best and to win the game.”
