Our prediction for this Premier League match:
West Ham United will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Burnley when they host West Bromwich Albion at Olympic Stadium. The Hammers are on a three-game winning run in all competitions, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive clean sheet. Even though the capital club will rely on their rock-solid defence in Tuesday’s clash, home win should be considered as David Moyes’ troops have been in a splendid form of late.
The Baggies, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Wolverhampton on the road, with the team recording their second win of the season. WBA regained a much-needed confidence, but seeing that West Ham are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that Sam Allardyce’s troops will return home empty-handed. Both head coaches can count on key players for the postponed fixture.
Highlighted Player (Andriy Yarmolenko):
Arguably the most exciting Ukrainian player at the moment, Andriy Yarmolenko is the 26-year-old forward, who can play wide as a winger and fill in numerous positions in attack. Over the past few years there has been a gathering feeling that the player has outgrown the Ukrainian League and that with the player surpassing the 200-game mark for Dynamo Kyiv Yarmolenko should be heading west to Europe’s brighter stage.
Wanted and scouted by Spanish giants Barcelona, Yarmolenko attracted interest from many other clubs, predominantly from the Premier League, and was even close to joining Everton in summer 2016, but the Goodison outfit’s offer came too late to the Ukrainian club.
Talented forward is a free-scoring machine who has already scored more than 115 goals for the club he spent his entire career with. The two-footed winger is equally adept through the middle and is a versatile force that would be a good addition to any self-respecting European side.
Yarmolenko made hi Ukraine debut in 2009 and has so far been capped 63 times, during which he scored 26 goals for the national set-up.
Highlighted Team (West Bromwich):
