⚽️ Competition: EFL Cup 2020

⚽️ Odds: 8
⚽️ Stake: 2/10
In the 2016/17 season, both teams played together in the Premier League. Now only the Hammers can be found there. Hull City was even relegated from the championship this summer and is now only represented in the country’s third-highest division. There the Tigers started with two wins, while the Hammers lost their first two league games.
Nevertheless, due to the class difference in the run-up to the game between West Ham and Hull, the odds of the bookmakers turn towards the home side, as the betting base odds comparison shows.
Nevertheless, the prediction of West Ham against Hull should not exclude that the first division clubs in the comparatively less relevant EFL Cup usually only compete with B or C eleven, which is why the unwritten rule that the cup has its own laws in this competition as in perhaps no other.
With this in mind, we risk tip 2 against Hull at West Ham and thus follow the outsider bet. After all, the Tigers travel to the East End of London with an extremely broad chest after three wins at the start of the season.
West Ham – Statistics & Current Form
West Ham United has been part of the top English league for nine years and was able to keep relegation again in summer 2020. In the end, however, the Hammers only landed on rank 16 and were just five points ahead of the saving bank.
No wonder, because 19 of the 38 league games ended in defeat for the three-time FA Cup winner. Nevertheless, those responsible stuck to coach David Moyes, who only took over on December 29, 2019, on the bank of the London club.
No real newcomer to the Hammers squad yet
Despite the comparatively poor performance in the league, almost all top performers could be retained. There was also less need for action on the transfer market, where only Tomas Soucek was permanently signed by Slavia Prague after he had already been loaned from there for the second half of the 2019/20 season.
Judging by the fact that the Hammers had an extremely bad start to the 2020/21 season with two defeats at the beginning and are in the basement in the Premier League in the less informative table after two game days, there seems to be a need for action on the one that is still open until October To pass the transfer market.
Five absolute hammer games in the Premier League in front of the chest
At least in the EFL Cup, however, David Moyes’ squad was able to avoid the disgrace very clearly in the first round. Against the third division club Charlton Athletic, the Hammers celebrated a sovereign and safe 3-0 home win, but need the victories in the league significantly more.
It is all the less consistent to play the tip of the Londoners move into the next round at West Ham against Hull, especially since West Ham in the league now plays in turn against Wolverhampton, Leicester, Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool – and thus against five teams that were in the top seven in the league last season. It is hard to imagine that David Moyes will play his first team in the unimportant cup game.

Hull – Statistics & Current Form
In 2008 the small football club from Kingston upon Hull rose to the Premier League for the first time in history, which ushered in the most successful era for the club to date, which even made it to the FA Cup final for the first time in 2014.
In the meantime, however, the Tigers have landed completely on the ground again. After the first two relegations from the Premier League in 2010 and 2015, they were able to return to the upper house of English football quite quickly, but after the most recent relegation in 2017, things went in the other direction.
Coach McCann and some top performers went to League One
After two mixed years in the championship, in which only one place jumped out in the lower half of the table, Hull City rose in the 2019/20 season as the bottom of the table also from England’s second-highest division and is now part again for the first time since the 2004/05 season of League One.
Of course, the mission is to return to the championship immediately, for which it was positive that on the one hand coach Grant McCann stayed with the club, while on the other hand, a few top performers made the move to League One, who could have been with higher-class clubs.
Three games and three wins in the 2020/21 season
Because the already strong hull could be reinforced with strong newcomers such as Greg Dochert or Richard Smallwood, the potential for direct resurgence is definitely there. In the first two league games in League One, they scored a zero victory, so that everything has been going according to plan with a view to the results. In addition, Hull threw Premier League promoted Leeds United away from the EFL Cup.
The probable lineup of Hull:
➲ Ingram – Elder – McLoughlin – Jones – Coyle – Batty – Docherty – Lewis-Potter – Honeyman – Scott – Wilks
