Stoke City vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Stoke City lost for a third consecutive match as they were beaten 3-0 by Arsenal during the weekend. Paul Lambert saw his team hold out for 75 minutes, but the deadlock was broken by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty. Late goals from the Gambian and a penalty from Alexandre Lacazette made it a comprehensive win for Arsenal. Spurs were able to register a 3-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Despite falling down to Alvaro Morata’s header in the first half, Spurs gained a crucial advantage by scoring just before the break through Christian Eriksen. Second-half goals from Dele Alli made it a first win at Stamford Bridge in almost 3 decades for Spurs.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The away games against potential relegation threatened opponents can be banana skins for a club chasing Champions League football. However, Tottenham have a tremendous record against Stoke after managing to score 17 goals in the last four matches against this opponent. Even without the goals from Harry Kane, Spurs have averaged three goals per game in recent weeks. I would back Spurs to score more than 2.5 goals.

Stoke City continued to struggle in front of goal and the team has scored only once in the last four games against Spurs. Home advantage is likely to help the Potters, but they have failed to score in two out of the last three matches at the Bet365 stadium. However, Spurs have shown a tendency to concede goals on the road. The best value pick would be backing both teams to score.

Stoke City Preview

Stoke are slipping ever closer to relegation as the team has suffered three consecutive defeats. The fixture list does not get any easier for Stoke with the team facing the likes of Spurs and Liverpool in the next four games. However, the major consolation for Paul Lambert’s team will be the games against West Ham and Crystal Palace within the next five. These two matches are the perfect six pointers for the Potters to try and use as a shield against relegation. Stoke now need to make up three points just to get in touch with safety positions and the possibility of avoiding relegation is made of tough by a significantly poor goal difference – the worst in the division.

Stoke City Team News

Kurt Zouma, Konstantinos Stafylidis, Mame Diouf (knock), Eric Choupo-Moting (groin), and Lee Grant (wrist) are the players missing from action, while Charlie Adam remains on the suspension table.

Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Spurs may have been distraught after the early exit from the Champions League, but a string of positive results has put the club in a very strong position going towards the end of the campaign. Tottenham now stand to qualify for the Champions League ahead of Chelsea and Arsenal. This would be a major psychological boost for the North London outfit, who have long played second-fiddle to the two London giants. Spurs have shown in recent weeks that the club can win matches even without Harry Kane’s absence on the scoresheet. Kane has not scored in the last four appearances.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News

Harry Winks (ankle) is the only player unavailable for Spurs.
