As I predicted this a match that ended in a draw. I did predict 0 – 0 instead of 1 – 1, but it was a scrappy affair as I thought. To their credit, both sides were going for the win. There was some nice end to end play and some well played defending on both sides.
Stoke seemed much more inclined to try to work the ball around and get into the box with West Ham, more often than not, playing the long ball and especially trying to get the ball into Andy Carroll. Carroll may not have gotten himself on the scoring sheet, but he was instrumental in their goal with his threat in the air.
In the end both teams were deserving of the draw in my opinion. They both played hard and well and it was an entertaining match to watch.
