Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back draws with the likes of WBA and Manchester United, Stoke City suffered a 2-1 loss to Newcastle United at St. James’ Park in their last league game. The Potters have registered only one win in the Premier League this season and they are seen as underdogs in Saturday’s football match against title holders Chelsea. The Blues failed to impress in a goalless draw with their local rivals Arsenal at the weekend, but it has to be noted that Spain international Pedro missed a golden opportunity to score the winner for Antonio Conte’s troops in the London derby. Chelsea aim to start a new winning run in the English elite division and seeing that Stoke City have been struggling to find their best form of late, we predict that the visitors will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s clash at Bet365 Stadium. Alvaro Morata is widely expected to lead the line for the Blues against Mark Hughes’ troops.
Highlighted Player (Berahino):
Saido Berahino was born on 4 August, 1993 in Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi. He began his senior career at West Bromwich Albion at age 17, but in the 2011/2012 he was sent on loan to Northampton Town. After ending his loan spells with Brentford and Peterborough United in 2012, the right-footed attacker returned to the Hawthorns. Berahino impressed in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign, with the English striker scoring 14 goals in 38 appearances for the team. At the end of the season he was on the verge of joining Tottenham Hotspur, but he eventually stayed at the Hawthorns. Berahino has yet to make his England debut, but he scored ten goals in 11 appearances for England U21 team. It is well known that Berahino is a Manchester United fan. In 2015 he founded his own charity foundation which helps disadvantaged people in Great Britain improve the quality of their lives.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash. After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
