Sport Paul Lambert press conference

Paul Lambert has credited former Stoke City winger, Marko Arnautovic, ahead of their tie with West Ham United on Monday.

The Austrian signed for The Hammers in the Summer of 2017 for a deal worth up to £25m after submitting a formal transfer request to Mark Hughes. It was a transfer record for West Ham who also added Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart to their ranks during the window.

Football Paul Lambert press conference

Stoke City manager Paul Lambert insisted that all eyes are geared towards gaining a positive result against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Monday evening.

The 48-year-old declined the opportunity to make any comment on the situation regarding Jese and Saido Berahino. On-loan Paris Saint Germain attacker Jese has reportedly failed to turn up for training, while Berahino has been demoted to train with the under-23s.


Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland has thanked former Potters manager Mark Hughes for giving him his ‘big break’ in the Premier League, and says he hopes the Welshman can keep the Saints up – just not at Stoke’s expense.  
Speaking to StaffsLive at Burntwood Primary School, where he was promoting the upcoming under-17 European Championships on home soil, Butland said he owed a lot to the new Southampton boss. 


Paul Lambert was full of praise for his opposition number Pep Guardiola, ahead of his Stoke’s match against Premier League leaders Manchester City.

The Scot said that the City boss was ‘probably the best manager around at the moment’ as he prepares to welcome him to the Bet365 Stadium on Monday evening.
