Swansea City v Stoke City tips – Potters can make their point
Stoke City are enjoying a winning run and should come away from Swansea with a positive result
October 19th, 2015
It wasn’t the ideal start to the season for Mark Hughes who was hoping his team would build on 9th place and that thrashing of Liverpool right at the end of the campaign.
However, three straight wins have steadied the ship and Stoke are now eyeing the scalp of Swansea, with Xherdan Shaqiri and Bojan Krkic looking set to both start this evening and this could yet be the best Potters team to have played in the Premier League.
It certainly doesn’t feel that Swansea are good value at even money to claim victory, considering that Bafetimbi Gomis has stopped finding the net like he did in the opening matches of the season.
There are some talented midfielders in the form of Jonjo Shelvey and Gylfi Sigurdsson although the defence appears prone to conceding the odd goal or two as was the case during a 2-2 draw with Tottenham last week.
We’re going for another draw in this game which would please Stoke more than their Welsh opponents.
