Stoke City vs Tottenham Hotspur
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 7 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Bet365 Stadium (Stoke-on-Trent).
The Potters look to be sliding down the Premier League ladder at an alarming rate. They’ve fallen into the danger area being winless in eight straight affairs. To make things worse for Paul Lambert and his men, it’s Tottenham Hotspur who are about to visit Bet365 Stadium this weekend.
The visitors will head into the game in high spirits after beating Chelsea in a super important six-pointer in the battle for the Champions League spots next term. Mauricio Pochettino started without Harry Kane who came on from the bench late in the second half. Chelsea grabbed an early lead through Alvaro Morata, but Christian Eriksen bagged a screamer from outside the box to level things up before the break. Dele Alli stole the show netting a brace in the second half to push the Spurs eight points clear off the reigning champions in fifth.
With Harry Kane in the squad, Pochettino’s side will be massive favourites to cruise their way towards a new victory on Saturday against the out-of-form relegation strugglers. Overall, Tottenham have done very well without Kane as they0ve netted an impressive tally of ten goals in three consecutive wins across competitions.
Given they are now up against league’s weakest defensive line (61 goals conceded in 31 matches so far), we could expect such high-profile trend to be continued for the visitors here. The Potters have also had huge issues with the efficiency up front recently. They’ve only scored once in last four league games and they will come into thus off the back of a tough 3-0 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday at Emirates Stadium.
