The Hammers went 1-0 up after captain Mark Noble scored from the penalty spot.

In the 18th minute referee, Graham Scott gave a penalty to the Hammers after midfielder Manual Lanzini dribbled from his own half into the Stoke box and drew a foul from Stoke defender Erik Pieters. After the match, Stoke manager Mark Hughes told the BBC  “I’ve seen it again. The guy’s dived. He’s drawn the challenge. He’s a clever player. It was clearly a dive and the ref’s seen something that no-one else saw.”

Marko Arnatovic against his former club doubled the advantage for the Hammers in the 75th Minute. During the Match, the Austrian midfielder hit the bar twice but finally scored before being subbed off for Chicharito.

In the 86th Minute substitute, Diafra Sakho scored the third goal, for the Hammers finishing off a wonderful counter-attack from the East London side.

Stoke: Butland, Cameron, Shawcross, Wimmer, Pieters(Tymon’63), Shaqiri, Fletcher (Adam’62), Allen, Sohbi, Crouch, Diouf (Berahino’62)
