West Ham United's Cheikhou Kouyaté, Enner Valencia, Mauro Zarate and Adrian have been pictured on their way to face Stoke City in the Premier League this weekend.

West Ham United's Cheikhou Kouyaté has posted a picture with three of his team-mates as they make the long journey to face Stoke City this weekend.

Enner Valencia, Mauro Zarate and Adrian all looked to be in good spirits as the team embarked on the journey to the West Midlands. 

It is understandable that they are looking forward to the game, too, due to their stunning form so far this season.

The Hammers are currently in the top four after a brilliant opening to the campaign and they will be aiming to continue their fine run of results when they take on Stoke.

The Britannia Stadium is a famously tough place for visiting teams but the Potters have already been beaten on home soil twice this year and, if Sam Allardyce's side perform to the top of their game, they will certainly have a chance of picking up victory. 

Previously, this game would have been expected to be a match-up between two direct teams but they have both made giant strides in terms of their style of play and are now two of the most exciting teams in the league to watch.

It, therefore, promises to be a captivating encounter in the Potteries and West Ham will be hoping that their long journey today will prove worthwhile.
