The opening live card of the weekend sees 4th place West Ham enter the fortress of the Brittania Stadium to play Stoke City. Peter Crouch and Phil Bardsley are suspended for Stoke while West Ham face forwards Zarate and Sakho, the later of which has scored 6 in 6 premier league games, doubtful due to injury. Refresh regularly for updates. 1' - Underway here. Zarate is on the bench for West Ham. Charlie Adam on the bench for Stoke. 2' - Stoke had a corner early but it came to nothing. 5' - West Ham with possession in the attack third before Winston Reid over-kicks it and out at the byline. 6' - Moses had a decent go from long range but it's over the bar. 10' - Stoke with a good chance after Cresswell was caught forward on the right side. Stoke cut the ball back before Collins blocks an effort on goal that allowed Adrian to grab the loose ball without challenge. 14' - Song wins the ball in midfield and the break is on for West Ham but the ball into Valencia was too heavy. 16' - James Collins with another block and West Ham look to break after a threatening Stoke attack but the cross goes right to Begovic. 18' - Reid's taken quite a knock here. He's trying to walk it off but it looked a heavy one. Stoke with a corner that is cleared. 20' - Downing has not been in this game and West Ham look like they're struggling a bit with the 4-2-3-1 employed today. They've been using the 4-4-2 Diamond the past 7 weeks. 21' - Stoke have a ball that runs across the face of goal but Diouf can't get on the end of it. 23' - Reid looks like he's coming off as he's down again. James Tomkins is warming up for West Ham. 27' - West Ham a threat forward now as Downing lays a 1-2 for Song before skying the chance. 33' - Stoke has had two runs down the right side, this time a shot comes in that deflects off a few bodies before Moses bundles it into the net. Stoke City 1-0 West Ham United 35' - Zarate should come on at half-time and West Ham back to the 4-4-2 Diamond. This is not working for the Hammers. 38' - Sidwell has a dig from 30 yards out but it's wide. Stoke hungrier at the moment. 43' - The passing from West Ham has to be better too. Just poor from the Hammers. Stoke come down with a chance but it's cleared before another effort from long range whistles wide. 45' + 2' - Cameron gets a ball to Diouf who just shakes off Collins and is in alone but Adrian makes a fantastic save. Half-Time Stoke City 1-0 West Ham United Analysis: Victor Moses is playing West Ham out of the park. 4-2-3-1 is not working and will need to change. Downing should go back into the hole behind the 9. Zarate would be a good addition, possibly for Amalfitano. 48' - We're back underway but it's Carlton Cole who replaces Amalfitano. 49' - Stoke had a corner but it amounts to nothing. Valencia is down after being taken out. Should have been a foul easily but it's not given. He's okay though. 51' - Alex Song is not having as good a game as I've been used to seeing him. Stoke have picked right back up where they've left off. 53' - Stoke won a free kick in a dangerous area but the effort was right at Adrian. 54' - Stoke threatening before the attack breaks down. Valencia puts it past Sidwell but it fouled to stop the run and Sidwell is cautioned. 56' - Walters runs down the right before lofting the cross in. Diouf capitalizes. The Britannia is just a tough place to play. Stoke City 2-0 West Ham Untied 57' - Moses runs down the left and has a chance but puts it just wide of the far post. West Ham look awful. This has been a disappointing afternoon. 58' - Valencia in the box with a try but it's over. Corner given but no one is near it and Stoke are on the counter. Jenkinson dispossess the attack. 60' - Downing on the right after winning the ball. He lofts a ball in that Valencia makes a diving header on AND SCORES! West Ham are back in with a shout! Stoke City 2-1 West Ham United 63' - Stoke on the counter passing the ball up and down the box before it centres to N'Zonzi but Adrian makes a great save.

Nolan to come on for Noble. 70' - Stoke win a free kick in the attacking third here. It comes into the box for Diouf who wins it and puts it inches wide of the far post. 72' - Play on the right from Downing and Jenkinson win a corner. A lot of shoving in the box going on. Ref is telling off Cole & Begovic. The corner is out for a throw. It comes back across twice and it lays for DOWNINGGGGGGGGGGGG! WEST HAM LEVEL! Stoke City 2-2 West Ham United 75' - Still 15 minutes in this. Been a cracking game. 76' - Valencia goes for goal from 30 yards out and misses wide but not by that much. 77' - West Ham have woken up.

Tackles are flying in, it's all going off here. 80' - Bojan with an effort on goal but it's right at Adrian. 81' - Stoke have a corner here. Game is wide open. Bojan is off for Charlie Adam. 83' - Adrian with a great save after Cameron slots it just wide but it's ruled a goal kick. 86' - Walters fouls Adrian pretty hard here. Should be a booking there was no play or look on the ball, he just barges into the keeper. No booking though. 90' - Back and forth. 3 minutes of added time to play here. The smash & grab is on. 90' + 2' - Corner given to Stoke here. Shawcross has a go but it's blocked. Song gives the ball away and Stoke are coming back. Full Time Stoke City 2-2 West Ham United Analysis: Stoke were the better side but West Ham's goals were quality. It was overall just a cracking game of football. West Ham remain on their unbeaten run but will probably slide a spot or two in the table.
