Hull's desperate tactics could let Ayew sneak in
West Ham still need another win or two to stave off the threat of relegation but avoiding defeat may be their top priority at third-bottom Hull, who are nine points below them.
Hull have been in the drop zone since October and are running out of games despite an improvement in their performances under Marco Silva.
They have to try to push for a victory over West Ham but may leave themselves exposed to the pace of Andre Ayew on the counter-attack.
