Moyes To Make 1 Important Change – Strongest 3-4-3 West Ham Line-up To Face Stoke City

Predicted West Ham United Line-up To Face Stoke City In The Premier League

West Ham United backed up their victory over Chelsea last weekend, with a 0-0 draw against Arsenal in the mid-week, as they finally look like a team capable of finding some results. They do remain in the drop zone but have a decent chance of making it this weekend, when they travel to the BET365 Stadium this weekend. Stoke are not an easy team to beat at home, especially at this time of the year. But the Potters have been pretty inconsistent this season, and are coming into the game on the back of a loss to Burnley.

David Moyes will be happy with the performances of his side in the last couple of games and will be pretty confident going into this game.

Team News

Sam Byram and Jose Fonte remain sidelined for West Ham ahead of this game, alongside Chiekhou Kouyate and Edimilson Fernandes, who are all but ruled out. Moyes shifted to a 3-5-2 in the game against Arsenal and is expected to stick to a similar lineup.

Formation: 3-4-3

Manager: David Moyes

GK – Adrian

A string of impressive performances has seen Adrian replace Joe Hart in goal as the first choice for David Moyes.

CB – Winston Reid

The skipper put in a solid effort against Arsenal, coming back from an injury. He should retain his place on the right-hand side of West Ham’s 3-man backline.

CB – Angelo Ogbonna

The Italian has been a constant presence at the back for the Hammers and should start this game at the heart of the defence.

CB – Aaron Cresswell

Though he’s not a natural CB, Cresswell has done an effective job as a part of the backline and should start on the left-hand side of the defence.

Angelo Ogbonna

RWB – Pablo Zabaleta

The former Manchester City man has added great stability to West Ham’s right flank and he will hope to have an effective game against the Potters.

CM – Pedro Obiang

The first choice midfielder for Moyes at West Ham, Obiang was their best midfielder against Arsenal. He will hope to put in a similar performance against Stoke.

CM – Manuel Lanzini

Adding some creativity to the midfield should be Lanzini, who has been effective in a deeper role. He is expected to start as a part of a four-man midfield.

LWB – Arthur Masuaku

Masuaku has been solid on the left flank for the Hammers and has been one of the first names on the team sheet this season.

Marko Arnautovic

RW – Michail Antonio

The English winger played effectively as a part of a 2-man strike force against the Gunners. But he should be pushed to the right flank, to add some width to their attack.

LW – Marko Arnautovic

Arnautovic has been West Ham’s best player since returning from injury and will be the danger man for the likes of Kurt Zouma in this game.

ST – Javier Hernandez

Got a few minutes under his belt earlier in the week, after coming back from an injury and is expected to start this game, leading the line for West Ham.

Here is how West Ham might line up:
