Did you know?

West Ham United can secure a second successive Premier League home win for the first time since December 2016, while they could also complete their first league double over Stoke City since the Potters’ first PL campaign in 2008/09.

Marko Arnautovic has been directly involved in 13 PL goals this season, with nine goals and four assists. That is at least five more than any of his West Ham team-mates, while one of his goals came in the reverse fixture against his former club.

Stoke City have lost only one of their last nine PL matches against West Ham (W3 D5), although that defeat came in December’s meeting. They are unbeaten in their last five PL away matches against the Hammers (W1 D4).

The Potters are targeting their first PL victory on a Monday this season, at the fifth attempt (D1 L3).
