Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bet365 Stadium will host Saturday’s Championship game between Stoke City and Leicester City, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Potters aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Birmingham City and Sunderland and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the league leaders. Defender Junior Tcahamadeu is back from international duty, while all Josh Laurent, Frank Fielding, and Emre Tezgel remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Foxes, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Swansea City. The league leaders are eyeing their 11th away win of the season and with Patson Daka returning from the Africa Cup of Nations, away triumph should definitely be considered. Issahaku Fatawu continues to miss out through suspension, while Harry Souttar is still representing Australia at the Asian Cup. All Josh Laurent, Frank Fielding, and Emre Tezgel are out of contention with injuries for the home team.
