Three points tonight, against Stoke City, should ensure that West Ham United move a step closer to retaining their Premier League status.

After getting back to winning ways, last time out, at the London Stadium, then getting a very creditable draw, at Stamford Bridge, on our last Premier League fixture, the Hammers support will be hoping the side can keep the recent good run of form going.

Ahead of the fixture, both managers have held their pre-match press conferences.

David Moyes, addressing the assembled hacks, spoke about getting an unbeaten run going, remarking,

“It was a great point at Chelsea. It’s not enough yet but the last two games have given us a lift.

“The ideal situation is to go unbeaten between now and the end of the season, there is no reason why we can’t do that.”

Now that would be a good scenario.

As for the Stoke City manager, Paul Lambert, it appears the Scotsman is coming to the London Stadium looking for the win, with Lambert remarking to the media,

“We have to come away from West Ham with something without a doubt. The intent is to go and win and we will do everything we can to get three points.

“If we get a win it drags a few back in and that’s the most important thing.

“You need a little bit of luck at certain times but the performances have been incredibly high and the way we have played I couldn’t ask for any more from the team.”

The scene is set, but the big question remains, who is going to emerge as the victor, or will it be a case of the spoils shared?
