West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is hoping to keep his side’s momentum going in tonight’s game against Stoke after two impressive results.

Much has been made of West Ham’s tough run of fixtures up until Christmas but the east Londoners took a point against champions Manchester City and beat Newcastle last weekend.

He said: “The tough phase has already begun for us and, after Stoke on Monday we go into a run against the other big boys. We’ve coped very well so far and I hope we continue to cope on Monday night because that’s a big game for us.

“We want to continue our home form and home results and get a very important three points against a well-experienced and well-organised team with a really good manager.”
