Stoke City vs Liverpool Prediction & Betting tips
As part of the 14th Matchday of the Premier League, it will be late Wednesday night between Stoke City and Liverpool FC. The visitors from Liverpool scored ten points in the league from the last four games and are in good shape. Stoke City, meanwhile, has been waiting for their first three games, with just three points ahead of the relegation zone. Thirteen goals have been scored in the last three direct duels between the two clubs and we take that tendency for our tip.
Stoke City :
Stoke City are in 15th place in the Premier League after thirteen match days. The gap to the relegation ranks is just three points. After three winless games in series, the “Potters” want to score again in the next few games. With two home games in a row, this is certainly possible, even if they meet with Liverpool FC this coming weekend to a strong opponent. Coach Mark Hughes’s team lost six of their thirteen league games this season. Stoke has one of the weakest defensives in the entire Premier League with 26 goals. In front of their home crowd their record is balanced with two wins, two draws and two defeats.
Last season, Stoke City lost 2-1 to last-place Crystal Palace. The 1: 2 goal fell only in injury time, which could have a negative impact on the morale of Stoke players. In five out of six home games of the “Potters” this season fell at least three hits. In their own stadium, they had already conceded eleven goals. Coach Mark Hughes will face goalkeeper Jack Butland and Stephen Ireland for injury to Liverpool FC.
Liverpool FC has been unbeaten in all competitions for six games. In the Premier League, they took ten points from the last four games. There, the “Reds” are now on the sixth place in the table. However, the gap to unbeaten leaders Manchester City is already 14 points. A realistic goal for this season would probably be the Champions League ranks, which are currently two points away. The team of coach Jürgen Klopp has in the league a total balance of six wins, five draws and two defeats. Their offensive is the third strongest in the Premier League with 25 goals. However, away from home, Liverpool had to concede the most goals to all clubs in the league.
Against a direct competitor to the Champions League places, Chelsea FC, there was a 1-1 draw last Saturday. The goal they had to accept it in the last five minutes. Liverpool FC had an average of 3.3 hits this season. In away games, this cut even increases to 4.7! Against Stoke City, Reds right-back Nathaniel Clyne is unavailable due to injury. The use of Emre Can is questionable.
