West Ham United vs Wolves live stream, Saturday 1 October, 5.30pm BST, Sky Sports Main Event

Two struggling sides will go head-to-head in the late kick-off on Saturday, as West Ham host Wolves.

David Moyes’ men have been unable to get going in the Premier League in 2022/23, with just one win in their first seven outings. Their most recent fixture brought a 1-0 defeat by previously winless Everton (opens in new tab), leaving the Hammers in the bottom three going into this weekend. No one at the London Stadium is panicking just yet, but defeat here has the potential to significantly dampen the mood in east London.

West Ham (opens in new tab)’s biggest problem so far has been putting the ball in the back of the net. They have done so just three times to date; their upcoming opponents are the only team with as bad a record. 

Moyes has for the most part favoured Michail Antonio over Gianluca Scamacca up top, but he could be tempted to make a change on Saturday. Elsewhere, the Scot will hope that Lucas Paqueta adapts quickly to English football, as West Ham are sorely lacking creativity right now.

The same charge can be levelled at Wolves (opens in new tab), who have not yet solved their principal weakness from last term. Only the three relegated clubs scored fewer goals in 2021/22, and Bruno Lage’s charges have drawn a blank in a majority of their seven matches so far this season.

The fact that new striker Sasa Kalajdzic suffered a serious knee injury on his debut has not helped, with Diego Costa hastily snapped up on a free transfer as a result of that unfortunate development.

West Ham will have to make do without summer signing Nayaf Aguerd, while Ben Johnson will need to be assessed in the run-up to kick-off after a thigh problem.

Wolves will be unable to call upon the services of Chiquinho, Raul Jimenez and Kalajdzic due to injury, while Nathan Collins is suspended. Costa, who has not played a competitive match since leaving Atletico Mineiro in January, might only be fit enough for a place on the bench.

Kick-off is at 5.30pm BST on Saturday 1 October and is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
