There is a busy schedule of midweek matches in the Premier League and West Ham can continue their climb up the table.

West Ham star Michail Antonio

With just two defeats in their last 11 Premier League games, West Ham have been going under the radar as they climb up the standings.

David Moyes’ side will now look to edge closer to a top-six place with three points against strugglers West Brom on Tuesday night.

Hammers to Send Baggies Packing

West Ham’s rise up the table has been largely thanks to a solid defence, having kept clean sheets in all of their last three Premier League outings.

The Hammers were made to work hard to break down a rigid Burnley side on their way to a 1-0 win in their last outing, the recently returned Michail Antonio scoring the winner, and it will be a similar test against the Baggies this week.

West Brom will be on a high after their shock 3-2 derby win at Wolves but that does not hide the fact they have picked up just two wins in their first 18 games.

The Baggies have leaked 11 goals in their last three matches and the Hammers should have the quality to claim the three points.

A West Ham win on the night is 10/17, while a home win to nil is available at 8/5.

Stalemate on the Cards at Foxes’ Den

Two top-four contenders also go head to head on Tuesday night with Chelsea making the trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City.

Chelsea laboured to a 1-0 win over 10-man Fulham in their last outing and manager Frank Lampard has admitted his side are not currently at their free-flowing best.

Frank Lampard sees his Chelsea side face West Ham on Monday.

Leicester looked convincing in their 2-0 win over Southampton last time out and will fancy their chances of getting something from their next outing.

The last three Premier League fixtures between Leicester and Chelsea have ended in draws and another stalemate to happen on Tuesday is available at 5/2.

Fulham No Match for Red Devils

Moving on to Wednesday’s action in England’s top flight and Manchester United look set to keep the pace at the top of the table when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage.

United will be left wondering what might have been after squandering a couple of good chances to win at Liverpool on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side don’t have to wait long for an opportunity to put things right and they will take some stopping against the Cottagers in the capital.

Fulham boss Scott Parker

Having come on as a substitute against rivals Liverpool, Edinson Cavani will be hoping for a starting role against Scott Parker’s men.

The Uruguayan international is fresh after his recent suspension and will cause the Fulham defence plenty of problems if given the chance.

Former Paris Saint-Germain star Cavani is 23/20 to score anytime and is available at 10/3 to score the opening goal of the game on Wednesday night.

Goals on the Order at the Etihad

Having dished out a 4-0 hammering of Crystal Palace last time out, Manchester City are expected to rack up a few more against Aston Villa on Wednesday.

After a stuttering start to the season, City are getting back towards their best and they have a good record against the Villans.

City have scored 13 goals in their last three Premier League meetings with Villa and there is 6/5 on offer for over 3.5 goals in the game at the Etihad this time around.
