Tottenham Hotspur vs Stoke City – Recent Performance

Tottenham Hotspur vs Stoke City Preview, Predictions: Following is a quick look at how these teams have been performing in their recent encounters in an early phase of the English Premier League:

Tottenham Hotspur:

In the beginning of the season, Spurs performed quite well. However, they have been struggling a lot recently. In their last five games in English Premier League, they have only won one, lost two and two were draws. Tottenham’s away game against Watford was a struggling 1-1 draw. Leicester City recently defeated Spurs with the 2-1 lead at home. Spurs clashed with West Bromwich at home was drawn on 1-1. They even failed to score against Arsenal in an away game and faced a 2-0 defeat. Last time Tottenham Hotspur tasted victory was about a month ago, against Crystal Palace.

Stoke City:

Their performance in the English Premier League is pretty bad this season. However, Stoke City is trying really hard to get back on the track. The registered a 2-1 victory against Swansea City in their last clash. Before that, they lost a home game 0-3 against Liverpool. It was quite surprising that they were defeated 2-1 by a team like Crystal Palace. Their home clash with Leicester City and away clash with West Bromwich Albion were consecutive 2-2 draws. This performance indicates that we can expect a comeback from Stoke City in any of the upcoming games.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Stoke City – Team News, Tactical Analysis

Tottenham Hotspur vs Stoke City Preview, Predictions: Let’s have a look at team, injury or suspension news coming out from both sides, and also know how this game will affect their standings in the English Premier League:

Tottenham Hotspur:

There are three casualties to Tottenham Hotspur ahead of their clash against Stoke City. They will be missing MF Victor Wanyama and CB Toby Alderweired due to injuries and CB Davidson Sanchez due to sustained suspension. We are expecting heavy rotation and changes looking at the available squad. They are currently in the 6th position with 25 points. A victory is less likely to take them up, however, it is a must to safeguard their current position, which seems quite hard to achieve for Spurs looking at their recent form.

Stoke City:

Stoke City has fewer casualties to deal with compared to their opponents Tottenham Hotspur. Attacking MF Stephen Ireland is confirmed to stay out due to injury. CB Bruno Martin’s presence on the field is still not confirmed as he sustained an injury last Saturday. They are currently in 13th position in the league with 16 points. A big win can take them up to three positions up. However, a defeat will cost them with the risk of falling 2+ positions down since they are only three points ahead of 17th position. We are expecting a comeback from Stoke City in this game.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Stoke City – Predictions
