Kick Off – 15.00pm Sunday 15th May 2016

Stoke hosts West Ham at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday in the Premier League, as the visitors look to seal a spot in the top-six.

The home side suffered a 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace last time out. The Potters took the lead the lead through Charlie Adam in the first half. However the Eagles hit back scoring twice in the second half through a brace from Dwight Gayle.

Mark Hughes side have enjoyed a topsy-turvy campaign, with a challenge for the European places looking likely early on the season. However, the Potters will now finish comfortably in midtable for a third consecutive campaign.

West Ham bid farewell to the Boleyn Ground in style last time out, as the Hammers defeated Manchester United 3-2. West Ham took the lead late in the first half through a Diafra Sakho effort, only for Anthony Martial to grab a brace in the second half.

The home side levelled the scores with less than 15 minutes left through Michail Antonio and won it in the last ten minutes through a Winston Reid effort.

The Hammers could finish as high as fifth and on level points with fourth-place Manchester City, but due to inferior goal difference cannot realistically make the top four.

Facts And Figures

The 13 Premier League meetings between these two teams have been very even, as both teams have recorded four wins and five games have finished in draws.

It has been a similar story in the six Premier League meetings at the Britannia Stadium, as both teams have recorded 2 wins and two games have finished in draws.

West Ham have failed to win any of the last five meetings between these two teams, but the last three meetings have been draws.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes has a relatively poor managerial record against the Hammers. The Welshman has faced the Londoners on 18 occasions. He has won just five times, picked-up four draws and been beaten nine times.

West Ham are unbeaten in five away games in the Premier League. The Hammers have also scored two or more goals in each of those five away outings.

Stoke have failed to win any of their last six games in the Premier League, losing four of those games. In fact the Potters have won just one of their last nine games in the English top-flight.

The Potters have failed to win any of their last four home games in the Premier League.

Team Selection And News

Stoke are likely to be missing a number of first choice players for this clash, with goalkeeper Jack Butland, defender Glen Johnson and midfielders Ibrahim Afellay and Stephen Ireland all out of action through injury.

West Ham’s only likely absentee for this clash is first choice ‘keeper Adrian, so deputy Darren Randolph is expected to continue in goal. Slaven Bilic may name an unchanged team from last time out.

Possible Stoke Team Selection

Haugaard, Bardsley, Shawcross, Cameron, Pieters, Imbula, Whelan, Shaqiri, Adam, Arnautovic, Crouch

Possible West Ham Team Selection

Randolph, Antonio, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Lanzini, Noble, Kouyate, Payet, Sakho, Carroll

Match Prediction

Sprits will be high among the West Ham players and fans, but Stoke is usually a difficult ground to visit for opposition teams and I believe this game will end all-square.
