    Premier League LIVE: Stoke vs West Ham

    Probable Lineups:

    stoke westhamStoke City (4-2-3-1): Begovic, Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters, N’Zonzi, Whelan, Odemwingie, Ireland, Arnautovic, Crouch

    Stoke City are on a decent run of form, losing only once – a 1-0 loss to Manchester City – in their last six games that included Arsenal and Man United.  Mark Hughes, however, will be without two important attacking players as Jonathan Walters joins Charlie Adam in the suspension list. Former Manchester City midfielder Stephen Ireland should start ‘in the hole’ behind Peter Crouch.

    West Ham United (4-2-3-1): Adrián, Demel, Collins, Tomkins, McCartney, Noble, Taylor, Jarvis, Nolan, Downing, Carroll

    The Hammers’ amazing four game winning streak came to an end when Everton squeezed one pass them at Goodison Park, but Sam Allardyce would still be happy with the performance. Andy Carroll returned from a suspension in that fixture and should lead the line tonight over Carlton Cole. West Ham, who only a few weeks ago were tipped for relegation, are now in touching distance of the magic 40 point mark and guaranteeing safety.

    Remember this?

    You know Jermaine Pennant drives fast cars.  Did you also know he could drive in a free kick?

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Andy Carroll

    Andy Carroll was born to play a game like this: two physical sides battling it out in the English league. And we expect the big striker to out-muscle and score – or lay off an assist – for the Hammers.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Stoke City vs. West Ham United: An Alternative Preview

    Only five teams have picked up more points at home than Stoke City in the Barclays Premier League this season (24).

    The Hammers have conceded just one goal and kept three clean sheets in their last four Barclays Premier League away outings.

    West Ham didn’t manage a single shot on target against Stoke in their meeting at the Boleyn Ground earlier in the season.

    Mark Hughes’ side have lost just one of their last 11 Premier League games at the Britannia Stadium (W5 D5 L1).

    West Ham have only lost one of their four Premier League trips to the Britannia Stadium (W2 D1 L1).

    The Hammers have scored exactly one goal in each of their four Premier League matches at the Britannia Stadium.

    The Hammers have scored 799 goals in Premier League history.

    A win in this game and Stoke will match their total number of Premier League home wins from last season (7).

    Stoke and West Ham are the two sides with the fewest headed goals this season (two apiece).

    If only home games counted this season Stoke would be sixth, ahead of Tottenham and Manchester United in the table.
