Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Bet365 Stadium pits together Stoke City and Leicester City. The Potters played out a goalless draw with Southampton in midweek and it has to be noted that they had key player Marko Arnautovic sent off after 23 minutes. Mark Hughes’ men showed character in Wednesday’s game and they will be looking to regain their spot in top ten with a victory over Leicester City. The Foxes rolled over Manchester City in their last home fixture, but they failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Bournemouth in midweek. The reigning champions have been struggling on the travels this season and that is the main reason why we predict the hosts will return to winning ways on Matchday 17. In Marko Arnautovic’s absence a man to watch in the home team will be Xherdan Shaqiri, who is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line.
Highlighted Player (Joe Allen):
Joe Allen is another high-quality footballer from the new generation of Wales internationals, who was part of the team that took Swansea from League One to the Premier League, and he had no problems adapting to arguably the strongest league championship in Europe. Allen operated as a deep-lying playmaker as the Swans impressed upon reaching the elite division, with his excellent passing skills persuading Liverpool to splash £15 million on his services. The central midfielder didn’t exactly manage to develop into an indispensable member of the side at Anfield, but he is considered an important squad player and has always performed well when called upon. Meanwhile, he has been one of the pillars of the most successful team in the Wales history together with Gareth Bale, Ashley Williams and Aaron Ramsey, while even representing Great Britain at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Allen started five games for the Dragons as they secured the first ever appearance at the European Championship finals.
