A win this weekend and we could go top of the Premier League. Mental, isn’t it?
Of course, that’ll all depend on Manchester City losing at home to Norwich and Arsenal crumbling at Swansea, but it is possible.
As usual, we’ll be relying on our creative players to perform at their best if we’re to leave Vicarage Road with maximum points.
Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini and Victor Moses should all start, but we’ve also got Enner Valencia back in the fold, while Andy Carroll proved against Chelsea last week that’s back and raring to get in amongst the goals.
But which Hammers players to do you put in your The Sun Dream Team Weekly. We’ve picked three West Ham players this week, forming a spine of absolute brilliance that should get you a lot of points this weekend.

And here’s our team…
Joe Hart – Man City are at home to Norwich this weekend and although they like to concede the odd goal, you have to back them to keep a clean sheet at some point. I’m backing them this weekend.
Vincent Kompany – See above, and with the Belgium international having a lot to prove after coming back from injury there’s high chance he’ll produce a performance worthy of a 7+ rating. Points, please.
Jan Vertonghen – Unfortunately Spurs are in good form and have the chance to continue their unbeaten run with a home game against managerless Aston Villa at White Hart Lane. Expect a clean sheet.
Aaron Cresswell – Cressy’s superb cross led to Andy Carroll nodding in the winner against Chelsea last weekend, which reminded us all of his ability to provide his teammates with goal scoring opportunities from wide areas. Possibly a clean sheet as well, so get him in your team.
Hector Bellerin – Arsenal are away, but Bellerin is one of the best full-backs in the Premier League right now and it’s hard to not pick him on the basis of his recent form. High chance of a 7+ rating.
Christian Eriksen – Spurs’ creative force, and you’d expect him to have a field day against a struggling Villa on Monday night. Loves a free-kick.
Kevin De Bruyne – The Belgium international should run riot against Norwich side without a win in five Premier League games. He got the winner for City in the League Cup in mid-week, and he’s in top form. He’ll definitely chip in with an assist at the very least.
Alexis Sanchez – The geezer is the best player in the Premier League right now, for obvious reasons. He should be the first name on your team sheet every week at the moment. Simple.
Wilfried Bony – With Aguero out injured it’s Bony’s time to shine, and so far he’s done that. With Kevin De Bruyne creating the chances, Bony should be finishing them this weekend.
Diafra Sakho – Because he loves an away goal, doesn’t he?
