WEST HAM vs STOKE – ENGLAND PREMIER
December 12 2015, Olympic Stadium 15:00 GMT +0
Today 2 teams from Premier league will face each other on Olympic stadium. The 8th placed West Ham will guest Stoke city in 16th round of Premier League. The last matchup between these two teams, last season ended in 1-1.
West Ham hasn’t convinced us with their latest form, with no wins in the last 5 games, the last win was against Chelsea, who hasn’t shown their true form this season with 2:1. Their form with a combination with their long list of injuries (Valencia, Payet, Shako, Moses, Lanzini, Reid and Oxford, whose participation in this match is doubtful) will surely make this match much harder to win, or draw.
Stoke on the other hand is playing very well and has won 4 out of 5 last matches, all the wins with clean sheet, also the last win was against 3rd placed Manchester City at home, where we could see a excellent display of great football from Stoke City. Their form is spectacular and has surely raised their confidence going into this match. Stok will be missing Peter Crouch, Peter Odemwingie and Shay Given, but any of them wasn’t a big part of this season, so it’s not likely they will be missed.
All in all this matchup won’t be easy for neither side, but Stoke has a little advantage going into this matchup with their form and West Hams long list of injuries. My prediction for this matchup is Stoke City.
