Leicester – Stoke City
Stoke City hosts Leicester City in a match from the 11th round of the English Premier League. We will examine this clash and we are going to offer you our soccer betting predictions for today for it.
Both teams are situated in the bottom half of the Premier League standings. Stoke City are 14th with 11 points won so far. Mark Hughes’ team have a record of three wins, two draws and five defeats since the start of the new campaign. Stoke improved their position in the table during the last round, when they enjoyed a win over Watford away from home.
Leicester City are 11th in the league standings. In the last round The Foxes celebrated a win over Everton, which was an official debut for their new manager Claude Puel. Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray’s goals were enough for the win over Everton, who were led by the caretaker David Unsworth.
Although Leicester were champions of England pretty much soon ago, now their goals are totally different. The club’s main ambition is just to survive and stay in the league. And if they can clinch a midtable finish, this would be great.
We can say the same about Stoke City. They are a club which finds a way to survive every season. Now they will try to do the same once again. Although they are 14th in the standings at the moment, the difference between them and the relegation zone is just three points. They have to be careful.
Stephen Ireland continues to be injured for Stoke, while Peter Crouch and Bruno Martins Indi are doubtful. It’s still not clear what their condition is at the moment.
Leicester will be without the injured Matthew James and Robert Huth, who are still not avaliable for selection.
These were our soccer betting predictions for today for the game between Stoke and Leicester. Good luck!
