    West Ham United FC v Stoke

    Post  Admin on Sat 05 Nov 2016, 9:59 am


    West Ham will be aiming to make it back-to-back Premier League wins at the London Stadium when Stoke City visit on Saturday.
    The Hammers are 10 points worse off than at this stage last season but their form has picked up in recent weeks, winning three of their last four games in all competitions, although they were beaten 2-0 by Everton last weekend.
    Stoke are also in good form after a wobbly start to the season. Mark Hughes' men have won their last three Premier League games after failing to win any of their opening seven fixtures.
    Team news
    West Ham will be without Winston Reid.
    The New Zealand defender is suspended after collecting five yellow cards this season, although a hamstring injury would have kept him out anyway.
    Strike duo Diafra Sakho (back) and Andy Carroll (knee) should be fit after the international break.
    Meanwhile, Hughes has confirmed that Xherdan Shaqiri and Geoff Cameron are both unlikely to feature for Stoke. 
    Shaqiri was forced off during the Potters' 3-1 win over Swansea City on Monday night with a hamstring strain, while Cameron missed the clash against the Welsh side entirely with a knee injury. 



    It means Ramadan Sobhi and Charlie Adam could be in contention for a starting berth.

    After winning both games against them in Stoke's debut Premier League season, West Ham have beaten the Potters just twice more in their last 12 Premier League meetings (D5 L5).
    Indeed, Stoke are unbeaten in their last six league meetings with West Ham (W3 D3) - only against Blackburn have they had a longer unbeaten run in the Premier League (7 games).
    Stoke have won just six of their 44 Premier League games in London (D9 L29), with two of those coming against West Ham (both 1-0 in March 2010 and August 2013).
    Joe Allen has been involved in half of Stoke City's 12 Premier League goals this season (four goals, two assists).
    Dimitri Payet has created more goalscoring chances than any other player in the Premier League this season (33).
    West Ham have converted just 6.6 per cent of their total shots into goals this season in the Premier League; a lower ratio than any other team.
    Slaven Bilic will be looking to win for the 20th time as West Ham manager in the Premier League, in what will be his 49th match. Bilic has the best win ratio of any permanent West Ham manager in the competition (39.6 per cent).
    Stoke have turned the corner big time and West Ham are looking up as well, despite their poor result at Everton last week. Stoke played well against Swansea and Wilfried Bony getting off the mark for them was important.

    Neither clubs had a great start to the season but they're getting better and better, I don't see a lot between these two teams so I'm going to go for a draw.
    Paul predicts: 1-1 ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
    Betting
    West Ham are [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] with Stoke 13/5, the same price as the draw. Neither side are perceived to hold much in terms of lofty aspirations this season following troubled starts, with West Ham 2/1 just to secure a top-half finish while the Potters are even longer odds at 7/2.
    The first goalscorer market is a wide open one, with no less than five West Ham players, including Dimitri Payet and Michail Antonio, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], while Wilfried Bony heads the betting for the visitors at 7/1.

    The most boring and frustrating games I have ever seen are between us and them.

    Hoping for better today

    Going to be a very tough difficult game but I think we will nick it 1-0 and so happy to see Zaza on the bench and not in the Starting 11 - Glad he has given Ayew a chance instead as I believe Ayew to be a much better all round player then Zaza.

    Also I believe a win for us and if other results go our way we can actually climb up to 10th in the league going into the international break !

    Very dissapointed with the first half , Stoke definitely had the better chances and they are defending well ..........  need to get the ball more to Lanzini and Payet  but I,m not too happy with Payet at the mo ...... need to pick up the pace a bit West Ham

    Didn't tune in till late on but looked a bit of a non event.

    Adrian doing what we all know he can do for their goal.

    Didn't create anything from what I saw, summed it all up when Payet made space for himself to shoot just outside the penalty area fairly central and tried a dinked ball into the box instead.

    We need 2 new centre backs. A right back. A new goalkeeper and 2 strikers.
    5 new players due to our disaster in the transfer market.
    Will we get these, "what do you think".
    Really finding it hard to find 3 teams worse then us.

    I now find myself watching every game this season fuming at the shit that we bought in during the summer.
