David Moyes could be under pressure if the Irons don’t start winning

West Ham have won just once in the top flight this season and David Moyes could be in trouble if his poor start continues.

Meanwhile, the visitors are 17th, just two points behind the Irons and struggling to score goals.

In fact, these two teams are the worst performers in the Premier League this season, managing just six between them.

Their combined tally is less than 14 teams that scored individually, so something has to change on Saturday.

West Ham v Wolves: Team news

The Hammers are still without new centre-back Nayef Aguerd as he recovers from his nasty pre-season injury.

But it looks like they managed to get through the international break without any further setbacks.

Moyes must also decide if Gianluca Scamacca, Maxwel Cornet and Flynn Downes are ready for departures.

The visitors will be without Nathan Collins after being sent off for a brutal challenge against Jack Grealish against Manchester City.

They might have to start without a striker as Sasa Kalajdzic has suffered an ACL injury.

Raul Jimenez is expected to be out for a few weeks as he battles a knee problem.

And Diego Costa may not be fit yet despite signing for Old Gold earlier this month.

West Ham v Wolves: What was said?

Simon Jordan on Moyes: “You’re always going to be the victim of, or the beneficiary of, past acts.

“The beneficiary of them tends to be a new contract and a big bag of cash. The victim tends to be that you have to live up to those standards, and nothing lasts forever.

“As an owner you will know when a manager is done. David Moyes is far from done. He is far from beaten.
