TIGHT: West Ham have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four Barclays Premier League games at home.
BARREN: Stoke City have won just one of their last 12 Barclays Premier League away games (W1 D4 L7).
RUN: The Hammers have won two and lost none of their last four Premier League clashes with Stoke City.
HEAD-TO-HEAD: Last season’s 2-1 win for West Ham over QPR was the first time in seven clashes that Sam Allardyce has enjoyed a Premier League victory over Mark Hughes. Allardyce had lost four of the previous six, and drawn 2.
TIGHT: The last five Premier League games between these two have produced just nine goals in total.
CONTRAST: West Ham have attempted fewer short passes (409) than any other side in the Premier League so far this season, whilst Stoke City have made the lowest amount of long balls (37).
HAT-TRICK HERO: Kenwyne Jones will be hoping his three goals on Wednesday is enough to see him retain his spot in the starting eleven. The Trinidadian became the first Potters player to net a hat-trick during the Club’s Premier League era.
GOALLESS: Since the beginning of last season, West Ham and Stoke have both been involved in six 0-0 draws; joint highs in the Premier League. However, there has never been a 0-0 draw between these two teams in the Premier League.
