NET CLOSES IN STOKE FACE THE HAMMER

STOKE FACE THE HAMMER

13th April 2018

With only a handful of games left, sides in the Premier League bottom three have to do something they have failed to do all season - win games.

Both Stoke - who face West Ham and WBA who face Man United on Sunday were not fancied in the relegation race at the start of the season. West Brom could be virtually down after Sunday, especially if the likes of Palace, Huddersfield and Swansea get anthing from their games.

How Stoke must be rueing the sale of Marko Arnautovi? to the Hammers as he has proved a far better player fro the East London outfit. He can come back and haunt Paul Lambert's side- its a game Stoke have to win - but they have not a single games against a London club away from home in 18 attempts. The Hammers look banker material at even money.

Palace, Huddersfield and Swansea are all at home, which is even worse news for Stoke and Southampton. All three have winnable games against mid-table sides.

But West Ham are the bet.
