Preview: Hull City vs. West Ham United

Sports Mole previews the match between Hull City and West Ham United at the KC Stadium.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce could make changes to his starting lineup after seeing his team lose 2-1 at Aston Villa before the international break.

That defeat concluded a difficult week for the Tigers, who also missed out on a place in the Europa League, but Bruce has a number of new signings available to him for the visit of West Ham United.

Midfielder Mohamed Diame could face his former club, while record signing Abel Hernandez and midfield pair Hatem Ben Arfa and Gaston Ramirez should all be included in Hull's 18-man squad.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is under pressure to deliver an attacking team at Upton Park and he could hand a first Premier League start to Enner Valencia at the KC Stadium.

Striker Diafra Sakho, who has moved to West Ham from Metz, could also be preferred to Carlton Cole.

West Ham's only victory this season has come away from home when they overcame Crystal Palace by a 3-1 scoreline at Selhurst Park.
