Punter's Pick

However a morale boosting 1-0 win, secured courtesy of a fine strike from left back Aaron Cresswell has at least bought the Argentine some breathing space as his side move four points clear of the relegation places. Such is the congested nature of the middle third of the Premier League that a sequence of wins would push the Hammers back into the top six in a matter of weeks, so the Argentine has probably bought himself a window until the New Year with that victory over Chelsea to try and move the Hammers back up the table.

A hard to beat Wolves side take on a revitalized West Ham team in what looks on paper a cracking match up on Wednesday evening.

Draw machine Wolves proving hard to beat

With just two league defeats all season, Wolves have carried on their good work from last season and if anything have evolved into an even more complete team this season, as evident by their current league position (seventh) and progress to the knockout stages of the Europa League.

Perhaps the only area that will annoy manager Nuno Espirito Santo is the number of draws so far this season – eight of them in the league so far, giving his side a 57% draw rate. Had his side turned half of those draws into three points, his side would be sitting in fourth place and occupying the last Champions League spot, food for thought for the Portuguese as he looks to balance a sometimes conservative approach with the need to occassionally gamble and go for all three points.

Derby win gives Pellegrini breathing space?

With sacking season well and truly underway in the Premier League, Manuel Pellegrini could have been forgiven for looking over his shoulder as the likes of Unai Emery and Mauricio Pocchentino collected their P45s in recent weeks. A shocking run of form had seen his side sink to seventeenth position in the league prior to the trip to Chelsea last Saturday.
