Ghana deputy skipper Andre Ayew is confident his club side West Ham United will improve and compete well in the English Premier League following their 2-0 defeat to Everton on Sunday.
Andre made his second appearance for the Hammers since returning from injury but goals from Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley condemned his side to the defeat at the Goodison Park.
Andre who much is expected at the club says they will bounce back against Stoke at the London stadium in their next game.
He told Essex Live: "We played well, we had won three in a row and our players gave a lot in the two games then the first half today but we played well.
"We knew the first 20 minutes of the second half would be difficult and they got an early goal but we had our chances and didn't put them in.
"I don't think Wednesday affected us, in football terms we had the quality, we showed that in the first half. If we could have scored in the first then it would have been a different game.
"We are doing well, honestly, we are playing good football we just need to try and score more goals. We cant waste what we did in the last three games and forget what we did. We just need to go back, watch our mistakes and try to learn from them.
"Stoke will be tough, but In front of our fans, I believe we can beat them at home, for sure."
