Hull City v West Ham United tips – Tigers to burn bright on Monday night
Steve Bruce’s team have been impressive this season and can put a weak Hammers team to the sword
September 14th, 2014
Abel Hernandez, Gaston Ramirez, Hatem Ben Arfa and Mohamed Diame all arrived at the KC Stadium on transfer deadline day, with the latter signing especially notable considering that the move was made from Upton Park.
Hull have made a real statement of intent by recruiting heavily, looking to account for the sale of Shane Long to Southampton and the long-term injury suffered to Robert Snodgrass.
Steve Bruce’s side have already played seven games this term and bowed out of the Europa League to Lokeren although that might be a blessing in disguise for the Tigers who can now concentrate on domestic matters instead.
An opening day win at QPR was followed by a near-victory against Stoke before the Potters’ man advantage told in controversial fashion. The subsequent 2-1 defeat at Villa Park isn’t looking too bad considering the Midlands club having a flying start and the fact it came straight after a Thursday European match.
Therefore the 23/20 with bet365 looks worth taking, with Bruce looking to turn the screw on his old friend Sam Allardyce, with the Hammers having been turned over at home to Southampton a fortnight ago.
West Ham have won just once in their four games to date and they have conceded in each of those matches. Indeed, that one victory came at Selhurst Park directly after Tony Pulis had left and the Eagles were desperately searching for a new manager.
James Chester returns from suspension and the 23/10 about Hull winning without reply looks an attractive proposition as Andy Carroll continues to recover from injury.
