West Ham have been predicted to be victorious this weekend when we take on Sheffield United at the London Stadium, according to Chris Sutton.
Following back-to-back defeats in the league at the hands of both Manchester City and Liverpool respectively, David Moyes will see this Saturdays clash against the Blades as the perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways.
Our Hammers are eager for a much more positive domestic campaign this season, having spent the vast majority of the previous in a relegation scrap, and a win would once again get West Ham in the top 6 mix of sides.
Chris Sutton, who was doing his weekly predictions on BBC Sport, foresees a victory for Moyes tomorrow, as his Irons side look to take on a battered and bruised Blades side, following their 8-0 home mauling at the hands of Newcastle last weekend.
“It is really important for Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom that his side show some sort of response here after they were taken apart by Newcastle last week,” stated the former Blackburn Rovers striker.
“The way the Blades have started the season means Heckingbottom is under pressure. I think that’s unfair after he got them promotion, but unfortunately that’s the way it is. I just hope he gets time to turn things around, but everyone will be watching this one to see if they go under again.
“I don’t think that will happen, because the effort and the attitude will be there, but I am not sure they will have the confidence or the quality to go to London Stadium and get a positive result.
“West Ham’s approach won’t change – we know how David Moyes likes to set his teams up – but the question is how long will the Blades hold out? They did well last time they were in London, when they sat in against Tottenham, nicked a goal and were only beaten in stoppage time, but it will be hard for them if the Hammers score early.”
Sutton has predicted a 2-0 win for our Irons tomorrow – which would not only mean 3 points but a much needed Premier League clean sheet. David Moyes is expected to talk to the press later today.
