Hammers are beginning to find their feet
West Ham have a tough run of fixtures coming up but they can ease the pressure on Slaven Bilic with victory over Stoke.
Three points are crucial for the Hammers, who face trips to Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool and a home match with Arsenal over the next five weeks.
They have improved recently winning three of their last four and they can take advantage of a Stoke side with doubts over Xherdan Shaqiri and Marko Arnautovic.
