When asked for his prediction, Wilkins said: “Draw. West Ham are really missing the players out.”
The Hammers travel to Wales to take on still-managerless Swansea on Sunday, looking to end their run of poor form.
With a host of players out injured, including key man Dimitri Payet, Slaven Bilic’s side have struggled, scoring just two goals in their last four games, with two 0-0 draws in their most recent fixture. They have not won a game since October 24, and it appears as if they are in something of a blip.
However, they travel to a Swansea team with just one win in the last 12 games, and that came over Aston Villa, the worse team in the division.
They are still without a manager, although they did put in a good performance against Manchester City last week, and were unfortunate to lose with an injury time deflected goal.
Wilkins believes the two teams will cancel each other out, and has predicted a draw at the Liberty Stadium. The former midfielder has highlight West Ham’s injury issues as a potential factor which could cost them victory, but he does not believe the Swans will yet end their run of dreadful results.
