Stoke City vs Tottenham
England League Cup
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: bet365 Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent.
Tottenham have seen a mini-crisis on their hands and dropped to 5th in Premier League as they only snatched a point at Crystal Palace (1-1) and suffered narrow losses to Liverpool (2-1) and Leicester (0-2) since. They now look to end the unwanted streak and we expect Jose Mourinho’s men very motivated to impress against the Championship rivals.
Spurs have been scoring goals on the regular when away from home but still got little to show for it lately. They saw three draws in a row before the loss in Liverpool and the fans will surely consider this a good chance to bounce from such woes too.
Still, Stoke will have high hopes for a pick-me-up here too, having struggled for consistency. They sit just outside the Championship top 6 but only ended a streak of three games without a win as they beat Blackburn (1-0) on Saturday.
Potters failed to connect two positive results at bet365 Stadium since October and this will be just as worrying now. We are hoping for a strong challenge but we don’t see them denying shaken up visitors at this point.
Stoke City vs Tottenham Head-to-head
Tottenham beat Stoke in all of their last five head-to-head clashes.
Stoke last snatched points back in 2015, when they beat Spurs (3-0) at this ground.
We have seen three or more goals in eight encounters since 2014, when Potters usually found themselves on the receiving end.
Stoke City vs Tottenham Prediction
We feel backing Tottenham comes off as buying money for old rope and we are going for the visitors to make their way past Stoke. However, we don’t see it as smooth sailing at all and we’ll now rather go for an Away win and a YES on Both teams to score, which comes at enticing 2.87.
We have seen many in the know rate this a high-scoring contest in the making and we are hoping for the same as we go for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1.53. We have been used to such games between the sides in the past and both will want to show off now as well, despite struggles for goalscoring consistency of recent.
