West Ham were brought crashing back down to earth with a loss away at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon.

Raul Jimenez scored the only goal in a game in which David Moyes’ side rarely got going.

The visitors were left frustrated in their subsequent efforts to fight back as their run of four successive Premier League victories was halted with a first away defeat since April.

Bruno Lage’s Wolves, recording a fifth win in seven games, are up to sixth in the table, while David Moyes’ Hammers remained third ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Arsenal later on Saturday.

After applause rang around the ground prior to kick-off as a tribute to Ron Flowers following the former Wolves and England midfielder’s death last week, it was West Ham who made the livelier start to the contest, with Jarrod Bowen shooting into Jose Sa’s arms in the fourth minute.

Bowen then headed just wide from an Aaron Cresswell delivery, and Sa saved again as he caught Tomas Soucek’s strike.

Wolves registered their first attempt in the 20th minute when Ruben Neves drilled a low effort that Fabianski gathered, and eight minutes later Nelson Semedo put a shot wide of the visitors’ goal.

Home cries for a penalty then proved in vain after Hwang Hee-chan’s cross struck Ben Johnson on the arm, with referee Mike Dean unmoved.

Moments later, Jimenez found himself clean through but was unable to get his dinked attempt on target, and as Wolves continued to pressurise, Joao Moutinho saw a strike tipped over by Fabianski.

West Ham then had the ball in the net just before the interval but Kurt Zouma’s header was disallowed for a foul.

Three minutes into the second half, Fabianski did well to get down and turn Podence’s strike around a post, and the goalkeeper produced another fine save to thwart the Portuguese in the 56th minute.

Fabianski was finally beaten when Podence laid the ball to Jimenez, who swept the ball into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

West Ham’s bid to hit back saw Michail Antonio and Bowen fire off-target, while Max Kilman blazed a late effort into the stand at the other end.

Full-time: Wolves 1-0 West Ham

16:56 , Jonathan Gorrie

The performance, rather than the result, will be what worries David Moyes the most.

Wolves looking to tighten things up

16:44 , Jonathan Gorrie

West Ham making chances

16:40 , Jonathan Gorrie

80:00 - West Ham are getting into better areas but frequently rush the final pass or shot.

The performance, rather than the result, has been concerning.

Jack Rosser at Molineux

16:29 , Jonathan Gorrie

West Ham are finally starting to step up and play a little. Rice is seeing more of the ball and allowing the visitors to maintain a bit of pressure. Vlasic is yet to score in claret and blue and there would no better time to get going than in the final 20 minutes here.

Moyes ringing the changes

16:27 , Jonathan Gorrie

Lanzini now involved

16:24 , Jonathan Gorrie

66:00 - Much better from West Ham as Lanzini frees Antonio but the latter fires over.

16:18 , Jonathan Gorrie

GOAL: Wolves 1-0 West Ham | Raul Jimenez 60'

16:15 , Jonathan Gorrie

60:00 - It had been coming as Jimenez finishes under little pressure from just outside of the box.

Jack Rosser from Molineux

16:14 , Jonathan Gorrie

Moyes isn’t often one to make early changes but he’s about to act here with Lanzini being prepared. The Hammers have been no better since the interval and have needed Fabianski twice since the restart.

CHANCE FOR WOLVES

16:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

57:00 - Fabianski has just pulled off a cracking save to deny Podence and keep West Ham level.

If something doesn’t change, this will be West Ham’s worst performance in months.

16:12 , Jonathan Gorrie

CHANCE FOR WOLVES!

16:09 , Jonathan Gorrie

51:00 - Neves goes close with a stunning 20-yard volley.

It’s all Wolves in the second-half.

CHANCE FOR WOLVES

16:06 , Jonathan Gorrie

49:00 - Podence gets a shot off from the edge of the area and Fabianksi does well to tip it around the post.

No changes

16:04 , Jonathan Gorrie

48:00 - No changes from either side at the break which, while not unlike Moyes, is somewhat of a surprise given the manner of that performance.

Still, looking more lively during the early stages.

Back underway!

16:01 , Jonathan Gorrie

45:00 - Second-half begins at Molineux.

A very busy day in the Premier League today!

15:50 , Jonathan Gorrie

Jack Rosser’s half-time verdict

15:48 , Jonathan Gorrie

West Ham are probably lucky to be level at the break. They’ve been desperately poor on the ball so far. Struggling to keep hold of it and lacking ideas when they manage some sort of possession. Rice and Soucek struggling to get any sort of hold on midfield while the defending has looked shaky.

Half-time: Wolves 0-0 West Ham

15:46 , Jonathan Gorrie

45:00 - West Ham somewhat lucky to go into the break level and probably wouldn’t have had Jimene been able to muster any kind of finish.

Still, surely it can’t get much worse, performance-wise?

DISALLOWED GOAL

15:44 , Jonathan Gorrie

Zouma impressing

15:39 , Jonathan Gorrie

38:00 - Good defending from Zouma, who needs to step up in the absence of Ogbonna, as he manages to hold off some good skill from Podence in the box.

CHANCE FOR WOLVES

15:36 , Jonathan Gorrie

33:00 - Fabianski not happy as Moutinho has a shot from range.

The ‘keeper tips it over the bar but, really, it’s not good enough.

Jack Rosser’s frank verdict on West Ham

15:34 , Jonathan Gorrie

A very lucky escape for West Ham there, terrible finish from Jimenez. This is the worst West Ham have looked for a while. The visitors can’t keep hold of the ball at all and are giving it away time and time again.

CHANCE FOR WOLVES

15:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

32:00 - Jimenez fluffs his lines from close range.

15:32 , Jonathan Gorrie

15:31 , Jonathan Gorrie

Wolves want a penalty

15:31 , Jonathan Gorrie

30:00 - Wolves calling for a penalty after a ball from Ait-Nouri appears to hit Ben Johnson around the arm.

15:29 , Jonathan Gorrie

West Ham starting to struggle

15:28 , Jonathan Gorrie

25:00 - West Ham struggling somewhat.

Wolves are starting to dominate possession with their wing-backs starting to find space in behind the West Ham defence.

15:26 , Jonathan Gorrie

Jack Rosser from Molineux

15:24 , Jonathan Gorrie

West Ham now having to sit tight as Wolves enjoy a spell of possession. Pablo Fornals is dropping in as an extra man at the back to make it five when the hosts are on the ball.

Wolves starting to roam

15:24 , Jonathan Gorrie

20:00 - Hwang starting to grow into the game for the side while Neves has just fired wide from outside the box.

Antonio cross

15:20 , Jonathan Gorrie

17:00 - Bowen breaks after Wolves lose the ball and finds Antonio, though he cannot find Soucek in the box with his cross.

CHANCE FOR WEST HAM!

15:17 , Jonathan Gorrie

13:00 - Soucek, who cannot buy a goal this season, sees his shot saved by Sa.

Jack Rosser from Molineux

15:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

Both sides took a little time to settle but the first real chance for West Ham and Bowen should have done much better. He’s caused problems down the right between Saiss and Ait Nouri but should have hit the target with his header.

CHANCE FOR WEST HAM

15:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

12:00 - Big header from Bowen but he can’t quite direct it goalwards.

Very entertaining thus far

15:10 , Jonathan Gorrie

08:00 - Lots of quick breaks from West Ham after robbing Wolves of possession but the home side aren’t without danger themselves.

Bowen gets a shot off

15:07 , Jonathan Gorrie

05:00 - Bowen cuts in from the right and gets a shot off, though Jose Sa is behind it after a deflection took the pace off of it.

Early pressure

15:03 , Jonathan Gorrie

03:00 - West Ham are pressing high and looking to stop Bruno Lage’s side stringing passes together.

As they did against Liverpool, Moyes team looked fired up.

Kick-off

We’re underway at Molineux!

Jack Rosser’s pre-match thoughts

14:49 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea go six clear

14:46 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea’s win over Leicester takes them six clear of Manchester City.

West Ham, however, could close the gap on the leaders to 3 with a victory.

A new dawn in the Premier League but Moyes reigns supreme

14:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

Three progressive English managers make debuts for their clubs today in the shape of Eddie Howe (albeit remotely), Steven Gerrard and Dean Smith.

Still, while they might represent the new dawn, they walk into a league currently dominated by David Moyes on the British managerial front.

West Ham: The set-piece masters

14:19 , Jonathan Gorrie

David Moyes keen to remain calm in the transfer market

14:10 , Jonathan Gorrie

“The club spent a fortune a few years ago and it didn’t go right. There has got to be a way to think how is it best to do this, maybe invest in other things that are more important. New seats in the stadium and bigger crowds, maybe new things at the training ground. I don’t know where the new investment will exactly come but it is always too easy just to say it will be for players, maybe in the future it will be but we’ve got to watch that we don’t go daft and do something we regret.”You can read David Moyes’ full thoughts on the new money at West Ham here.

Confirmed West Ham XI

14:06 , Jonathan Gorrie

Prediction

13:25 , Jonathan Gorrie

This could be a tricky fixture for West Ham against a side that have begun to settle in well under Bruno Lage. West Ham’s winning run could come to an end but they are now a side of great quality, and a draw seems reasonably likely.

Early team news

13:10 , Jonathan Gorrie

Declan Rice is expected to be available for West Ham despite the midfielder’s withdrawal from the England squad after an illness.

However Angelo Ogbonna will be absent for at least the next few months having suffered an ACL injury against Liverpool. Nikola Vlasic and Andriy Yarmolenko are back in contention to boost David Moyes’ attacking midfield options.

Having left Raul Jimenez on the bench after the Mexican striker’s late arrival back from international duty earlier in the season, Bruno Lage will have a decision to make on his key central forward prong.

How to watch

12:55 , Jonathan Gorrie

Due to the 3pm blackout across football in England, fans will be unable to watch the game live.

However, highlights will be available on Match of the Day, broadcast at 10.30pm on Saturday on BBC One.
