West Ham are in a serious relegation battle in my opinion and this weekend they will look to make progress as they travel away from home to take on Stoke City. This game should be a great game since the away side is weaker but they have a lot more to play for so it will be a battle of talent against willpower.
West Ham are not the worse side but this season it has not been a good fit. The Hammers lost Payet which was a huge loss and moving away from Upton Park has been a disaster for the entire club. That being said, this is a historic club that needs to stay up and I expect to see a lot of fight among the players.
Stoke on the other hand have had a solid season but they are a mid table team now that have nothing to play for. This side is very talented with the personnel they have at their disposal but it is simply a case of motivation and I think it simply will not be there in this game. The like of Shakiri ae tired and as a result we are missing a bit of fight in recent games.
I think that West Ham will win this game and keep up their fight. We are getting a good price on this bet and as a result I think this is a very good play. Along with this, the under 2.5 goals is also a good option since it should be quite a cagey affair. This will also mean that both teams not to score is a good bet since I am expecting a 1-0 win to West Ham.
