Andy Gray and Richard Keys predict different outcomes for Stoke v West Ham

Stoke Britannia Stadium

Stoke City and West Ham United will face each other in the Premier League this afternoon.

Former Everton and Aston Villa striker Andy Gray has told Sport360.com that Stoke City will win against West Ham United at home this afternoon.

Stoke will take on West Ham at the Britannia Stadium in the Premier League in a few hours’ time.

Gray has backed the Potters to pick up all three points from the encounter, but well-known sports presenter Richard Keys believes that the Hammers will win the game.

The Hammers have had a long season and they will be tired, particularly after that fantastic win over United at Upton Park which will have taken it out of them,” Gray told Sport360.com. “1-0.”

“This could be Mark Hughes’ last game in charge of Stoke if Everton pursue their interest but West Ham are a better side and will win this,” added Keys. “1-2.”

West Ham will head into the game high on confidence and will be determined to bag all three points.

A win at the Britannia Stadium will see Slaven Bilic’s side finish in the top six of the Premier League and qualify for the Europa League next season.

It is never easy to win at Stoke, and the Potters will make it hard for the Hammers this afternoon.

The first goal will be key. If Stoke get it, then it is hard to see West Ham launch a comeback and win the match.
