20:15 – Wolves v West Ham

West Ham are a much tougher and a much better side this season. It’s a really tough game to call. West Ham have won three of their last four games on a Monday night fixture. This night clearly having been good to them over the last while. I think West Ham will be thinking that they cannot afford to lose this game.

They know full well that the momentum that they’ve built up over this season can be eroded very quickly if they fail to grab a win here. Losing that three goal lead against Arsenal would have been a massive blow.

I think both teams will grab a goal here. Tomas Soucek has been a fantastic signing for West Ham this season. At set pieces he’s been very effective for them also, and I can see him getting among the goals on Monday night. I mentioned West Ham’s great Monday night record. They have however lost their last two games in the Premier League, so David Moyes will be looking to correct that against Wolves.

I think Wolves will put up a firm resistance however. I can see this being a draw.

THOMMO’S TIPS: I’m going for goals here, with both teams to get on the board in this one. Tomas Soucek for West Ham has been incredible this season. He’ll grab a goal anytime. I’ll also go for 1-1 on the correct score.
