(Reuters) - West Ham United winger Marko Arnautovic has backed the London outfit to win a “massive game” against his former club Stoke City in the Premier League on Monday.
West Ham have won just six of their 15 home league games this season but their victory over Southampton last month helped the Hammers climb to 14th in the table.
"A win would be a big step. This game is massive. It's a big game for us, for the club, and for the fans. We will go all together on Monday and we will try as hard as we can to get the three points," Arnautovic told West Ham's website www.whufc.com.
West Ham, who sealed a surprise 1-1 draw at Chelsea last weekend, will be hoping to win consecutive home league games for the first time this season when they host 19th-placed Stoke, who are on a nine-match winless streak.
