Sam Allardyce and his Hammers had a good start of the season, but since we turned calendar to 2015 West Ham recorded only two wins in Premier league. In last ten competitive matches defeated only Sunderland (1-0), while they lost six times and drew three. Stoke’s record in last three matches is not much better – we lost to WBA, Crystal Palace and Chelsea. Obviously, this will be important game for both to return to winning path.
“We all want to end this winless streak and this is a good chance for that”, says Asmir. “West Ham is a great team, they proved that through the season and we’ve seen that in 2-2 draw at Britannia”.
This weekend’s visit to Upton Part will be tenth time that Begović is between sticks against West Ham – in previous seven occasions (he played for Portsmouth two times) Stoke won twice and Asmir saved one clean sheet (31/08/2013 0-1 in London).
