Preston are looking like themselves from last season. They are not scoring many goals neither receiving. The team still presses high and tries to block their opponents with some hard plays.

So far North End have won 3 points winning and losing once with 1-0. Their home victory over QPR didn’t come easy though as the team struggled to create good chances. Still the team also won at the Carabao Cup against Morecambe and may look ahead with confidence.

Stoke had a disastrous season in the Premier League. Now things aren’t looking good either. The Potters are winless having just a single point and the shadow of what happened to Sunderland leans over their fans.

Stoke didn’t enter the Carabao Cup yet so the team should be fresh for this fixture. Apart from that losing to Leeds United 3-1 and drawing Brentford at home is far from the required performance. Adding their weak performances in the preseason and their fans can really be worried.

  • Preston are undefeated in 3 games against Stoke
  • Preston are unbeaten in 4 games at home against Stoke winning 3 of them

Preston vs Stoke: Predictions

Preston are looking better prepared at the start of this season. The team may have lost once but still showed decent performances. Stoke on the other hand are far from impressive. Considering their awful away record last season we may as well see them struggle again this campaign.
