Burnley vs Stoke City: Prediction
This point has been repeated many time for Burnley’s matches this season. They are a reliable bunch while playing at the Turf Moor after having troubled the elite teams in the league.
On the other hand, Stoke are one of the most inconsistent sides in the league. While they are at their best, they can trouble anyone, but they are known for doing the exact opposite.
Judging by the current form, Burnley is the team we can trust with our money and hope they do a good job on Tuesday’s Premier League match.
