Stoke City vs Sheffield United
EFL Championship
Date: Saturday, 08 October 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Bet365 Stadium.

Manager Paul Heckingbottom is concerned as his team is facing stagnation. Currently, they are on a two-game winless streak. They will try to return to winning ways this weekend at Bet365 Stadium where they will face Stoke City.

The host suffered a 4-0 defeat against Watford at the beginning of this month. However, they played a good game against Burnley who are a top team in the Championship this season. The game ended with a 1-1 scoreline.

In that game, Harry Clarke scored the equaliser with three minutes remaining for full-time whistle. The team is currently at the twentieth position on the table.

On the other hand, the visitors unexpectedly lost to QPR by 1-0 most recently. Paul Heckingbottom’s team managed to register 21 shots in total however they could not find the back of the net.

The team currently occupies the first position on the table, however it is hanging on by a thread as rivals Norwich are also having the same points.

Therefore, we can expect Paul Heckingbottom’s team to play a very attacking game against this side.
