Manager Bruno Lage’s side have been rock-solid at the back this season, letting in only 18 goals so far in the league, behind only table-toppers Manchester City and tied with Chelsea.


Wolves are also in a strong run of form heading into the game against the Hammers, winning five of their last six league matches to sit only two points behind West Ham, with games in hand over the London club.



Soucek believes that since their opponents defend so tenaciously, the Hammers will not have many looks at goal and might have to take their chances from the first possible moment.


Additionally, Soucek thinks that since Wolves will not concede many chances, the Hammers should be careful not to let in goals themselves.



Speaking to West Ham’s official site, Soucek said: “When they’ve conceded the second-fewest goals, it’s possible that you will not have too many chances.


“We’ll need to score from the first or second big chance.



“In another way, we’ll need to not concede, because we might not create maybe the chances for four or five goals, but I think it will be a very competitive game and we will need to be clinical.


“I’m sure that we can beat them because when I see us, we are hungry to win, and we still want to fight for the high positions in the table.”


Wolves have kept nine cleans sheets this season in the league and in their fixture earlier this term, Lage’s side did not concede a goal to the Hammers and ran out 1-0 winners.


West Ham will be looking to turn the tables time out as they aim to get a win to not only bolster their own European ambitions but to also stop a rival from gaining ground on them.
