Stoke v Leicester Betting Preview
Venue: bet365 Stadium
Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off sees Stoke City host Leicester City at the bet365 Stadium with both sides looking to distance themselves away from the relegation zone.
Mark Hughes’ side, who have been far from consistent this season, are yet to win consecutive league games. In fact, the last time they did so was back in January.
Stoke’s overall record this campaign reads W3-D2-L5 while their home record stands at W2-D1-L2 meaning 7 of their 11 points have come on their own patch.
A win on Saturday will see them temporarily move into the top half of the table.
Leicester meanwhile, won their first game under new manager Claude Puel, beating Everton 2-0 on Sunday thanks to an impressive display from Demarai Gray. That win means the foxes are now unbeaten in their last 5 games in all competitions and unbeaten in 4 games in the league.
Leicester’s overall record this season reads W3-D3-L4 – interestingly however, all 4 defeats came against sides currently in the top 6 (Arsenal, Man Utd, Chelsea & Liverpool).
A win on Saturday will see them temporarily move into 8th in the table.
- Stephen Ireland and Geoff Cameron are out for Stoke. Shawcross is a doubt.
- Matty James and Robert Huth are out for Leicester while Adrien Silva remains unavailable.
