Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Bournemouth and Burnley, West Bromwich Albion welcome Stoke City at the Hawthorns on day 3 of the new Premier League campaign. The Baggies have been impressive at the back of late and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Sunday’s football match against the Potters. Hal Robson-Kanu scored the winner against Burnley before seeing a red card and the Welsh attacker is going to miss the Stoke City game through suspension. Midfielder Matt Phillips produced a fine display in the triumph over Clarets and he will be the man to watch in the home team. The Potters proved their worth in a 1-0 victory over Arsenal at the weekend, with former PSG and Real Madrid ace Jese Rodriguez scoring his first ever goal in the Premier League and, no doubt, all eyes will be on him when the two teams face each other in West Bromwich. A close encounter appears on the cards and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at the Hawthorns.
