Stoke are in danger of falling below 10th which is the second half of the table, they will need a home win in this game to keep their ship sailing and get them back to winning ways as the business end of the season draws near.

On the other hand, Spurs rekindled their title hopes last time out as they trashed the Red Devils 3:0 at home, now they hope for a win in this game to stand a chance of closing in on Leicester should they faulter.

Stoke city vs Tottenham: Prediction

This game won’t be an easy one for any of the sides, but Spurs coming into this game on the back of a huge victory over Red Devils should be in high spirits compared to the home side that received a heavy blow from Liverpool.

Spurs are determined to catch up with Leicester and needs to get all 3 points in this game to move closer should Leicester Slip. With their good away form in premier league I think they will get something out of this game.

Best bet: Tottenham win or draw
Correct score bet: 0:1
