Preview:
West Ham United and Stoke City meet at Boleyn Ground, in a match for the 16th round of the Premier League. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history indicates total balance between these two teams, since there is a record of 2 draws and 1 win for each team in the last 4 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium was on 11‑04‑2015, in a match for the Premier League, they tied (1‑1). The goals of the match were scored by A. Cresswell (7' ), for West Ham United, and by M. Arnautović (90' ), for Stoke City. Although this is a match between 7th and 11th of the league table, it’s actually a match between the 14th best in home matches and the 7th best in away matches.

Analysis of West Ham United

After 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses, the home team is in the 7th position, havinf won 23 points so far. In the last match, they have tied in an away match against Manchester United by (0‑0), after in the previous match they have tied (1‑1) at home, against West Bromwich Albion. Interestingly enough, this is a team that has had better results in away matches than at home, since they have won 14 points in away matches and only 9 at their stadium. For the league, West Ham United won 9 points out of 21 possible points, after 2 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses in the last 7 home matches.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 5 home matches. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 1‑0 (3 out of 7 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

After a mediocre performance in the last edition of the Premier League, West Ham improved a lot this season and is currently in the 7th position of the league, fighting for a Europa League standing. However, in the last matches their exhibitions have been disappointing, so they only won 2 of the last 9 matches. Therefore, they should try to recover and win again, but in this match against Stoke City coach Slaven Bilić cannot count on Payet, Valencia, Lanzini, Sakho and Jarvis, who are injured, apart from Michail Antonio, who is unlike to recover from his injury in time.

Confirmed Lineup: Adrián, A. Ogbonna, J. Tomkins, J. Collins, A. Cresswell, C. Kouyaté, M. Antonio, A. Song, M. Noble, A. Carroll, M. Zárate.
Coach: S. Bilić.

Analysis of Stoke City

The away team is currently in the 11th position of the league, with 22 points won, after 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Sunderland, by (2‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Manchester City, by (2‑0). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since they have won 12 points in away matches and 10 at their stadium, with 7 goals scored and 7 goals conceded at home, against 6 goals scored and 7 goals conceded in away matches. In the last 8 away league matches Stoke City has a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 12 points out of 24 possible. In their away matches there are a few frequent results: at half‑time 0‑0 (3 out of 8 matches) and after the 90' 0‑1 (3 out of 8 matches). Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 7 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 11 away matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (0'‑15'); they have conceded 4 of their 8 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Stoke City finished the last edition of the Premier League in the 9th position, far from the relegation zone, but also from a Europa League standing. This season, despite the current 11th position, they are only 1 point behind West Ham, so they wish to use this opportunity to enter the fight for a Europa League standing. To do so they need to win against West Ham, but they are aware of the problems they are to face. But the away team is motivated by the last away results, since they have lost only 1 of the last 5 away matches. Coach Mark Hughes cannot count on Crouch and Muniesa, who are injured. Odemwingie and Given are also injured, but should recover in time to play this match.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Butland, R. Shawcross, G. Johnson, P. Wollscheid, E. Pieters, G. Cameron, M. van Ginkel, I. Afellay, G. Whelan, Bojan, M. Arnautović.
Coach: M. Hughes.

Betting suggestion:

This is a match between two technically balanced teams. The home team is stronger in offense, but Stoke is more solid in defence. Therefore, there is a tendency for an open match, with goal opportunities for both teams, so we believe there will be a few goals in the final score.
