West Ham vs Stoke City – Premier League:
A unique game of the competition this Monday that puts two teams that are fighting against relegation face to face. The fact is that we expected more from West Ham.
The team has been doing bad campaigns in recent seasons always flirting with the fall. Therefore, the investment was heavy and the projections indicated, precisely for this reason, a quieter season.
That’s not what happened. The team was very irregular for much of the year and fought almost the entire tournament at the bottom of the table.
Even though the crowd gasped, the score was still 0 – 3. Confident in their lead, Interestingly West Ham seems to be living a better time. The team come from two good results, win against Southampton and draw away from home against Chelsea.
These results have given a relief, but not yet salvation. West Ham has 34 points and ranks 15th with 6 points more than the first team in the relegation zone.

Stoke seems to me to have gone the other way this year. And everything indicates that it will be fatal. The team lost some important athletes and the replacement was not of the same level.
Some highlights like Shaqiri remained but no doubt the cast lost in strength. This was reflected in the team’s campaign that although it has not been brilliant in recent years has never been so close to the Championship as this season.
Stoke is the nineteenth, also known as penultimate, with 27 points. They are already 6 points away from Swansea which is the first team outside the relegation zone of the Premier League.
In this way if we think that there are 5 rounds to the end of the Premier League the situation borders the dramatic.
The moment is not good. The team has not won since January and only adds one victory in the last 15 games.
Prediction West Ham vs Stoke City:
I believe this game can run in two directions. First the West Ham win that has value odds.
Of course they both make a bad campaign but the performance in the last games combined with the higher quality of the London team makes me believe them here.
Stoke’s timing sucks. Yes the team had a recent sequence with complicated opponents.
But the fact is that it undermines confidence. Goals are also always an option since both teams do not have great defensive qualities but rather in attack.
Prediction of the Day: West ham
