Hammers v Stoke …pundit delivers his forecast

Mark Lawrenson has decided that Stoke City are easy meat for the Irons at the London Stadium on Monday evening.

The BBC pundit reckons “things are pretty  rosy for West Ham at the moment after their point at Chelsea gave them a bit of breathing space above the bottom three.”

And he says that winning this game will mean they are “virtually safe, while Stoke would be left in all sorts of trouble.”

He writes in his weekly column: “The Potters need to start winning games but they just don’t have enough firepower in their side and they are not good enough defensively to buy themselves time to nick a goal.

In contrast, West Ham carry a threat at the moment through Marko Arnautovic, who is flying after making a slow start.

He will not need any extra motivation to continue his good form against his former club.

Lawro’s prediction: 2-0
