Premier League Preview for West Ham United v Stoke City along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
West Ham has started this season rather brightly with a home win and an away draw. They have used a combination of wing play with crosses as well as a solid midfield and defensive unit. They will be coming up against a somewhat rejuvenated Stoke team.
Stoke City began the season with a 1-0 away loss to Liverpool, but they had a lot of positives to take away from it. Those positives came to fruition in week 2 with their 2-1 home win over Crystal Palace.
My prediction for West Ham United v Stoke City is a West Ham win. They will be at home and playing at Upton Park is not an easy place to go. They began the 2013-14 EPL season at home and did well and I’m predicting to play well again. Stoke’s new manager and ability this year mean they could come away with a result, but, barring something crazy, believe they will have a hard time doing so.
Form: West Ham United (W, D) Stoke City (L, W)
Prediction: West Ham United 1 – 0 Stoke City
