Stoke City hope to end this season with a win after their 6 game win-less run in the league, they will be hosting West Ham at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday.
Stoke have to fight to finish in the top half of the table and a win in this game will ensure that. They have been on a poor form lately, they lost 4 of their last 6 games and drawn 2. They are currently in the 10th position and losing this game may see them drop out of the top half of the table. Also at home, they are without a win in their last 4 games, they have lost 2 and drawn 2.
West Ham need a decent result in this game to guarantee them a Europa League spot for next season. They will need a win to secure the spot, and they could as well finish in the 5th position should United fail to win Bournemouth, they also could finish 7th if they loose and Swansea wins their game. They have lost just 1 of their last 6 games and won 3. On the road, they are on Average form, they have lost just once in the last 6 games, and won 2.
