Despite seeing his posts being rattled, David Button was once again at his best as he parried away everything Wolverhampton directed his way.
Having kept four successive cleansheets, West Ham are truly a team to be revered when it comes to the defensive side of the game off late. The team has made its goal a citadel, one fortified by its backline.
We’ll be opting for the entire quartet from the club with all off Craig Dawson, Aaron Cresswell, Vladimir Coufal and Angelo Coufal being inducted in our unit. West Brom on the other hand see Semi Ajayi be our pick from the side owing to his ability to recover the ball.
His side’s top scorer this season with the five goals to his name, Tomas Soucek was a must have pick for us from the home team. Declan Rice, his counterpart in midfield will be linking up with him for the outing.

Callum Robinson scored against Wolverhampton to see that strike earn him a place in our team. Michail Antonio meanwhile popped up with a goal against Burnley, one which was enough to earn his side the three points on the day.
