Last season, West Ham United picked up twelve points from a possible eighteen in December and after that outstanding win at Chelsea on Saturday, they will be looking to do something similar this year by grabbing another three points when they go to Molineux to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers tonight.

Nuno Espírito Santo's men did the double over the Hammers last season but the East Londoners will be looking to build on their success at Stamford Bridge over the weekend and improve their position in the table, as they currently occupy thirteenth place.

One extra day's preparation could also benefit the visitors and they will be looking to take advantage of Wolves having had to play twice within the last week, due to their participation in the UEFA Europa League.

West Ham picked up only their fourth victory of the season against Frank Lampard's men four days ago and will be desperate to achieve consecutive successes for the first time this season.

It may only have been goalkeeper David Martin's debut at the weekend but it has not taken him long to follow in the footsteps of his Dad Alvin in achieving legendary status from the fans. Not only did he keep a clean sheet but the travelling support sung "there's only one David Martin" throughout the game. 

Thankfully for the Irons faithful tonight, he will again be in the starting line-up for the trip to the Black Country.

If Manuel Pellegrini decides to make any changes to his team, then he does have Issa Diop back available after serving a one-match suspension for accumulating five bookings and he could replace Fabián Balbuena.

Michail Antonio faces a late fitness test, meaning either Sébastien Haller or Andriy Yarmolenko may replace him upfront if the former Nottingham Forest man doesn't make the squad. 

It is possible that Jack Wilshire could return to first-team action in midfield after a lengthy period on the sidelines though the manager may delay his decision until the last possible moment before deciding whether to include him.

For the first time ever, all Premier League matches this week will be screened by Amazon Prime Video with the match at Molineux kicking off at 7:30pm. The referee for the contest is Andre Marriner.
