West Ham XI vs Wolves: Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for Premier League today


West Ham have welcomed Kurt Zouma back from injury for today’s Premier League trip to Wolves as he takes his place on the bench.

Zouma limped off during November’s defeat to Leicester, the final game before the World Cup, and underwent knee surgery during the break.

But it is Angelo Ogbonna who partners summer signing Nayef Aguerd at the back, with the Moroccan having made his long-awaited first Premier League start in last week’s draw at Leeds.


An injury to Alphonse Areola saw no1 Lukasz Fabianski miss out on a breather for last weekend’s FA Cup victory over Brentford, and the Pole continues in goal at Molineux.

Moyes has options at full-back but German international Thilo Kehrer stays on the bench as Vladimir Coufal shakes off a knee problem picked up at Leeds.

Further forward, Said Benrahma’s winner at former club Brentford is not enough for a start.
