West Ham vs Derby Preview

West Ham have held on to their top 10 status for all but one week since the middle of November. But a loss tomorrow could see West Ham fall into the bottom half of the table.

Hopefully the return of Lucas Neill, Freddie Ljungberg and Mark Noble will bolster the side enough to stop a fourth successive defeat. If West Ham need their confidence bolstered further they just have to think back to the last time these two teams met. West Ham won at Derby 0-5.

The Predictions

Lawro says 'West Ham are going nowhere', which is hard to argue with at the moment.

However Lawro still predicts a 2-0 West Ham win

It is a reflection of how poor we have been recently that Setanta actually predict a win for Derby. Setanta says that "a desire to avoid the ignominy of being officially the worst team in Premier League history should be inspiration enough".

Sky believe that Jewell will make whole scale changes to his side after last week's defeat - but on that logic he would be fielding a completely different starting eleven every week. Sky believe that Carroll and Darren Moore will be amongst those dropped by Derby.
