Premier League Preview for West Ham United v Reading along with Predictions for the matches on week 38 of the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week. You can also check out the weekly EPL TV Schedule.
I’ll start out by saying that I thought about predicting a draw, but changed my mind. It’s possible that there will be goals and quite possible that there will be none.
Reading are going down, but do need a point to ensure that they will not end at the very bottom. They fought hard against Manchester City, but just didn’t have the quality of players to hold them off. They have at least attempted to play positive and attacking football.
This cannot be said of West Ham who have often opted for route one football by just hoofing the ball downfield and aiming for Andy Carroll’s head. They have played the Sam Allardyce way by playing hard and never letting up.
My prediction is a West Ham United win. It most likely will not be pretty, but it should end with West Ham getting a result at the very least. Reading might be able to get a point, but I would be surprised if they did so.
West Ham (W, D, D, D, W, L, D, L) 3 – 2 Reading (L, L, L, D, L, D, W, L)
