Five Key Battles: West Ham vs. Stoke
Adrian vs. Lee Grant
An unusual battle to start with but nonetheless one of potentially crucial importance. Neither West Ham nor Stoke City have been particularly solid at the back this season, currently ranking third and fifth bottom respectively throughout the Premier League in terms of goals conceded and claiming just five clean sheets combined from a potential 20.
With that in mind, there will almost certainly be a handful of chances for both sides on Saturday, so the respective goalkeepers will have their work cut out. Adrian has made the second-most saves of any Premier League goalkeeper this season, an impressive 33, whilst Lee Grant has mustered up 14 in five outings.
