West Ham vs Stoke - The Predictions
David Sullivan has publicly stated that Gianfranco Zola will be in charge of West Ham whether he wins or loses against Stoke. However after five losses in a row West Ham can not afford to lose today's game.
For Stoke James Beattie is out of contention and Dean Whitehead is suspended. Ryan Shawcross is also doubtful with an ankle problem.
For West Ham Tomkins and Franco are both injured with Ilunga doubtful. Gabbidon and Dyer are both fit to play.
Lawro thinks West Ham can bounce back from Tuesday. He thinks we have enough players fighting for World Cup places who will be looking to raise their game.
Lawro predicts a 2-1 West Ham win
Sky note that West Ham tend to crumble when the opposition score. They say West Ham have only managed to take one point from matches in which they have conceded first this season. However they still see West Ham winning this one.
