Stoke City are still in the relegation zone with only 24 points to display. The club has only managed to win one game in the last seven battles across all competitions.
Paul Lambert’s Stoke City took the lead in the game against Bournemouth when Xherdan Shaqiri headed in from debutant Badou Ndiaye’s cross.
Unfortunately, the home team came back with second-half goals from substitutes Joshua King and Lys Mousset.
Brighton have been forced to settle in a 1-1 draw with Southampton through Jack Stephens’ second half goal. It was Brighton who opened score as Glenn Murray fired home successfully a penalty in the 14th minute.
Despite the draw, Brighton moved up to 13th spot and are one point above the Saints.
Stoke City have a relatively good reputation when it comes to home games. They are somehow difficult to beat in their own playground. So it looks like the Potters have a high chance of winning here, considering that Brighton are not good in terms of away encounters (Sign Up for other interesting Sportsbook and Virtual Sports)
