Tonight, at the London Stadium, West Ham United can take a giant step in assuring they are a Premier League club next season.

Stoke City are the visitors to the London Stadium with the Hammers knowing a win would open up a substantial points-gap between themselves and the relegation places.

Ahead of what promises to be an intriguing fixture, we’ve cobbled together some early team news.

Starting with West Ham United:

The Hammers injury situation, much to the relief of David Moyes, is starting to ease.

For this fixture, Moyes is likely to be able to call upon the services of Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini and James Collins, all of whom have returned from injury and have resumed training.

However, the Hammers do have a trio on the side-lines with Sam Byram, Pedro Obiang and Winston Reid all on the long-term injury list.

Continuing with our visitors Stoke City:

Paul Lambert brings his squad to East London with relatively few injury concerns.

From what we understand, only their striker, Maxim Choupo-Moting, is missing, with the player suffering from a groin injury.
