West Ham will looking to celebrate Sam Allardyce’s Manager of the Month award with a second successive victory at the Britannia Stadium.
The Hammers have the luxury of a fully fit squad, baring Joey O’Brien who has a dislocated shoulder, as they bid to distance themselves further from the bottom three.
Stoke are without influential stars Jonathan Walters and Charlie through suspension, which should ease the attacking pressure the Hammers defence would have normally expected from Stoke on their own back yard.
Here are today’s confirmed starting line-ups for both sides…
#scfc Starting XI vs West Ham: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross (c), Wilson, Pieters; Odemwingie, Nzonzi, Ireland, Whelan, Arnautovic; Crouch
