History has shown that this match has always been a tight affair with both teams usually finding the back of the net.
With such a disappointing away record Stoke tend to find their Premier League wins coming at home and will certainly be looking to take away all three points from a struggling West Ham side. Although comfortably sat 10th in the league with 11 games left it is still a fairly tight affair at the bottom half of the table.
With only two wins in their last twelve games West Ham are slowly being sucked into the relegation battle. The Hammers last away win was at Newcastle on the 11th November and it’s very difficult to suggest that they will change their fortunes at the Britannia Stadium.
