Wolves and West Ham United will be eyeing a return to winning ways in the 2020-21 English Premier League season when they meet at Molineux Stadium on Monday evening.

The Hammers have seen their push for a top four finish take a hit in recent weeks and have only won one of their last four Premier League matches, after a 3-3 draw at home to Arsenal before the international break.

West Ham had taken a 3-0 lead against their London rivals, but ultimately had to settle for a point.

“We got a little bit sloppy after we’d played ever so well for the first 30 minutes which resulted in them getting a goal just before half-time which,” said West Ham manager David Moyes following the draw on home soil.

“Nevertheless, we had a good lead going in at half-time but the minute we lost that second goal we were feeling under pressure, but we also had some really good chances to go on and win the game ourselves.

“We want that opening period to be the future and we want to play like that all the time, but we did it for 30-odd minutes and it’s got to be for longer.

“We need to be able to play as well as that for longer periods, but look, it’s great that we’re actually saying that we’re disappointed we’ve drawn with Arsenal,” he added.

Wolves have endured a disappointing campaign and head into the weekend on a four-game winless run after falling to a 1-0 loss at home to Liverpool last time out.

West Ham United forward Jarrod Bowen scored a brace in a 4-0 win for the Hammers over Wolves in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
