On Tuesday two of the Premier League’s out-of-sorts teams meet at the Bet365 Stadium, as Stoke host Watford.
Both sides have found victories hard to come by of late. In fact, Stoke have failed to win any of their last five Premier League games. However, in that five-game period, the Potters have faced Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, as well as last season’s champions Leicester.
Potters boss Mark Hughes will be confident that his side can get back to winning ways in this clash. The side from Staffordshire have some quality players in their squad, but injuries and that difficult run of fixtures has left the Potters 14th in the table.
Despite their recent struggles in the top-flight, Hughes’ side have not got a bad home record in the top-flight, losing just once in their last seven outings.
Watford are just a place higher than Stoke in the Premier League table but like their hosts struggling for wins. The Hornets have lost three of their last four league games and their away form is poor in the top-flight.
The Hornets have failed to win any of their last five away games in the top-flight and lost their last four consecutive games on their travels. To make matters worse Walter Mazzarri’s side have failed to score in their last two league outings on their travels.
The Hornets also have a number of injury problems at the moment, so will head into this clash as underdogs. Their poor away record and injury problems could contribute greatly to the end result in this clash.
Forebet predicts that Stoke will get back to winning ways and a win is badly needed to kick start the Potters campaign. A win would definitely come as a massive relief to everybody connected with the club.
