Stoke City vs Sunderland (Pick, Prediction, Preview)


Premier League 8th round begins Saturday. Stoke City play at home against Sunderland at 17:00 and is favorite to win at odds of 2.05. It’s an important moment for the hosts coach, Mark Hughes, who plays in every game station for a while, even if undefeated for a month. Neither team won in seven stages, but “potters” looks promising. We bet cautious, but on a hot match. It’s possible to see yellow cards, few corners and a victory disability.

Historical rival, Stoke and Sunderland fight for survival in the Premier League. The last two classes depend on three points in such a match and the hosts were more likely to achieve. Maybe even handicap, although statistics do not recommend more than a win on a goal difference. Stoke have better defense and could escape with no goal conceded.

Arnautovic and Allen scored in World Cup qualifiers

Arnautovic is shaped (scoring in World Cup qualifiers), as Allen (remade for this match). There is creativity and feels rise. Captain Shawcross gets more confident after 1-1 United defense and goalkeeper problem does not seem so big kid Grant there. It’s a positive picture, because Shaqiri, Bony, Bojan can make the difference against an opponent with weakness. Sunderland are dangerous Defoe (but is declining) and Khazri. Guests staying physically not well, even if we do not exclude a goal scored at odds over 2.50.

Moyes has not found solutions to Sunderland

If you get a win in the Premier League with Sunderland should, but Stoke has not beaten a head matches 5, 2014! The timing seems the hosts. When it beat in the basement of details made the difference is that Stoke is better today. It’s tied, homogenous shorter compared to previous years, but re counterattack. David Moyes is a nightmare at Sunderland, where nothing went in off season.

Scot loses his reputation, and this fancy 3-5-2 for Premier League Stoke is a module that can appear in a good day. Sunderland has limited resources on the ground and even if you mark will not be enough.
