West Ham to beat Stoke 2-0 is 17/2 with Bet365

West Ham’s recent resurgence has eased any lingering relegation worries but they will be looking to make sure of safety with victory on Monday night.

Stoke have been playing well under Paul Lambert, just not picking up any points.

After four successive defeats they are six points adrift and surely must win or face imminent relegation.

It’s fair to say it has been a turbulent season for West Ham however, the change of manager appears to have worked. Although their aspirations should be higher then solely survival, in these circumstances it has to be seen as a success.

The appalling scenes the London Stadium witnessed against Burnley just a couple of weeks ago are already a distant memory after West Ham demolished Southampton and battled back to draw at Chelsea last time out.

Can they all but secure Premier League survival with a win over Stoke on Monday night?

Stoke are deep in the relegation mire!

Things aren’t going so well at Stoke though. Paul Lambert won his first game against Huddersfield but hasn’t seen his side claim three points since, subsequently drawing four times and losing five.

Their problem remains scoring goals.

Their top scorer is Xherdan Shaqiri with just seven goals this season and they will certainly rely on him if they are to pull off what looks to be an increasingly impossible survival bid.
