Comfortable Hammers win expected
Stockport are huge and justified underdogs as they come into this FA Cup third round clash with Premier League outfit West Ham, with the Hammers’ confidence burgeoning after their victory over Everton on New Year’s Day.
Both sides have enjoyed a well-earned break since their last tie, with Stockport’s last game coming on January 2nd and West Ham not playing since New Year’s Day.
With five days between Monday’s clash and their next fixtures both can afford to field strong starting lineups here, an advantage that pushes the match even further in West Ham’s favour.
David Moyes is likely to rest a few of his key players, but they still boast a huge quality advantage over Stockport. They have kept a clean sheet in each of their last two games and have won to nil on six occasions this season. Stockport have lost two of their last six games and failed to score in both of those defeats, so a West Ham win to nil appeals.
We’re not expecting a crushing defeat for The Hatters, though. They have only conceded more than two goals once this season, so a 2-0 correct score prediction is our pick.
