Relegation fight: West Ham vs Wolves
One of the key fixtures of round 21 of the English Premiership will see bottom placed West Ham face second from bottom Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wolves had a shock victory over Liverpool that meant they moved one place up from bottom but in doing so they pushed the Hammers to finish the year in bottom place.
The Hammers have had a good run during the festive season and in the last three matches they have accumulated five points while Wolves two wins in the last three saw them get six crucial points.
The Midlands side must fancy themselves after their first away win of the season at Anfield and therefore they must be thinking they can do the same at Upton Park.
Depending on other results a win for either team could see them leave the relegation zone whilst a loss means the losing side will anchor the table.
A draw will leave the two teams in their current positions and so that may not be an interesting prospect for either team.
