Hammers To Frustrate New Tigers Signings
Back West Ham/Draw Double Chance
Hull v West Ham brings the curtain down on another fascinating round of Premier League action and Matt Le Tissier has a betting tip for the Monday Night Football clash, which is live on Sky Sports 1 from 20.00.
Steve Bruce’s side needed a lift after beign dumped out of the Europa League and some good business on transfer deadline day will have helped to appease the fans who were looking forward to a European adventure. Abel Hernández, Mohamed Diame, Gaston Ramirez and Hatem Ben Arfa are all in contention to start this evening, but changing too much too soon could upset the rhythm and one or two of the new additions may be introduced from the bench.
West Ham were unlucky to lose their opening game of the season away to Tottenham Hotspur and looked to be a side which travels well when taking maximum points at Selhurst Park. They came undone at home against a Southampton side which has coped well in light of some high-profile departures, but can be a difficult side to break down away from home.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “West Ham were moments away from getting a valuable point at Spurs, they then won comfortably away to Palace and Sam Allardyce knows how to frustrate sides on the road. I’m going to recommend the West Ham/Draw Double Chance at 10/13 with 888Sport, while the brave among you can get top price 3/1 with Betvictor on an away win for the Irons.”
James Chester is available following his suspension and should come into a three-man defence alongside Michael Dawson and Curtis Davies. Abel Hernández would seem the most likely new signing to start for the Tigers, he could be fielded alongside Nikica Jelevic with Tom Ince dropping back to play in the hole between midfield and attack.
West Ham have won four of the last five meetings between the sides in all competitions and will welcome Alex Song to their midfield following his loan move from Barcelona. Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan, Matthew Jarvis and Carl Jenkinson will all miss out through injury, meaning Enner Valencia and Mauro Zarate will occupy the most advanced roles for the Hammers this evening.
