Stoke City v West Ham: Matchday 35 Thread

Stoke star Saido Berahino is determined to repay Mark Hughes' faith

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has scoffed at suggestions that Stoke are already on the beach.

"We were obviously disappointed with the result last weekend but, I've said all season, when we've had a disappointment, more often that not we've bounced back".

"In fairness, I saw them last week against Everton". The player you want has to be available and he has to choose you.

The exclusive claims Antonio has rejected the offer of a new contract after being offered "significantly lower wages West Ham's January signings, Robert Snodgrass and Jose Fonte".

"He plays very rarely but I watched Stoke against Liverpool". He came on and with a couple of passes he broke their defence.

West Ham have only won one of their last 10 league matches but they are unbeaten in their last three league games, with two draws and one win. They will need to show the same level of effort and concentration if they are to return home with the three points.

A win would push the club through the significant 40-point mark for the season though and, with tough games against Liverpool and Spurs up next, the team might think this is their best chance of making that important Premier League point milestone.

Of course, the lack of a cutting edge has been West Ham's problem all season and speculation that Bilic is interested in signing Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge in the summer have arisen again this week.

"We are going to see".

"Now they are on 39 but knowing Mark Hughes, they will not be on a beach". This game should be a great game since the away side is weaker but they have a lot more to play for so it will be a battle of talent against willpower.

Stoke and West Ham shared the spoils in a goalless draw as Jack Butland kept his first clean sheet since his return - and in front of watching England manager Gareth Southgate.

However, Berahino hasn't scored a Premier League goal since February 27th 2016 (for WBA vs Crystal Palace) and has since gone 24 games and 1567 minutes without a goal in the competition.

"West Ham must take something from this match".

He was injured in the defeat to Leicester last month, which led to him missing two games and withdrawing from the England squad for matches against Germany and Lithuania.

The Potters are eyeing a record fourth successive top-10 finish and now sit a point and a single place off their goal with four games of the season remaining.
