West Ham v Stoke predicted lineups and match preview

Upton Park

West Ham host Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday.

To be played on Saturday 12th December 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Boleyn Ground, London

Odds: West Ham 13/8, Draw 21/10, Stoke 9/5

West Ham United host Stoke City at Upton Park on Saturday as they contend with a host of injury problems.

Manager Slaven Bilic has seen his side ravaged by injuries, with Winston Reid, Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini, Victor Moses and Diafra Sakho all missing for this game.

He has though be handed a boost, as Ecuadorian forward Enner Valencia has returned from injury and is available for selection this weekend.

He isn't expected to start though, with Mauro Zarate and Michail Antonio expected to support Andy Carroll in attack, whilst a midfield three of Mark Noble, Alex Song and Cheikhou Kouyate is also anticipated.

For Stoke, Mark Hughes is looking for another victory having seen his side convincingly beat Manchester City 2-0 last weekend.

Hughes is expected to keep the same side tomorrow, with a dangerous trio of Marko Arnautovic, Xherdan Shaqiri and Bojan - all of whom have won the Champions League in their careers.

Arnautovic even scored against West Ham at Upton Park last season, and the Austrian will be looking for the same again on Saturday afternoon, as the Potters look to take advantage of West Ham's injury problems.
