Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Stoke City will be aiming to extend their winning run in the Premier League to four games when they square off against West Ham United at London Stadium. The Potters have found their best form of late, but Saturday’s football match against Slaven Bilic’s troops will be anything but a walk in the park for the visitors. Anyhow, Mark Hughes’ men do not want to stop now and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. West Ham United defeated the likes of Crystal Palace and Sunderland in October, but Everton proved to be a big catch for the Hammers at the weekend. The capital club aim to bounce back from the 2-0 loss and, taking everything into account, we predict that fans will see a high-scoring affair at London Stadium. In their last meeting in the Premier League Stoke City recorded a 2-1 win over West Ham.
