Our football match prediction:
Stoke City faced a tough fixture list in December and, as a result, they dropped to 14th place in the Premier League standings. The Potters aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea, but Tuesday’s football match against Watford will be anything but a walk in the park for Mark Hughes’s men. Stoke City are determined to put an end to their five-game winless run and the good news for the fans is that key attacker Marko Arnautovic returns from suspension. Watford sit in the safe zone ahead of the trip to Stoke and considering that the Potters want this win more than their rivals, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Watford’s away performances leave a lot to be desired and we predict that Stoke City are going to return to winning ways in the national championship.
