Our match prediction:
Just as we have predicted, Stoke City ended a three-match losing run in the Premiership with a comfortable triumph over AFC Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium, before they cemented their place in the top half of the standings by defeating struggling Aston Villa at the weekend. The Potters now have a good chance to record a third straight win and further improve their hopes of securing European qualification as they now play host to out-of-form Newcastle United. The Magpies sit in the bottom three after losing three of last four league fixtures and with their injury crisis still taking the centre stage, they don’t seem capable of showing some improvement any time soon. Steve McClaren’s charges have been especially disappointing on the road, losing six away games on the bounce, failing to score in four of those, and with their next opponents in excellent form at the moment, we cannot help but predict more worries for the St James’ Park outfit.
