West Ham provided the essentials this Sunday against Wolverhampton (1-0), as part of the 27th day of the Premier League. The Hammers of a titular Kurt Zouma and always whistled by part of the London Stadium public made the difference thanks to an achievement by Tomáš Souček, well served by Michail Antonio, in fox surfaces (59th).
Declan Rice had previously found José Sá’s outside post (38th), while Hwang Hee-chan, for example, came close to the hold-up just before the break (45th + 4). A lack of accuracy in the last more global gesture (only 1 shot on target out of 14 attempts) which notably failed the men of Bruno Lage, sterile dominators in possession, the opportunities being more to the credit of the Londoners. The Bubbles can rain, West Ham maintains its C1 dream by temporarily overtaking Arsenal, taking a five-point lead over Wolves, who are still losing feathers in London.
