Our match prediction:
Despite suffering a 4-1 loss to what resembled Liverpool’s second string side, Stoke City appear to have secured a top table finish, making sure they are in line with pre-season predictions. The Potters were hoping to mount a challenge for European positions as well, but that is unlikely to happen now that they are five points behind sixth-placed West Ham, who also have a game in hand. Mark Hughes’ side have been pretty inconsistent of late and with the manager starting to give some fringe players a chance to shine, they could struggle to match red-hot Tottenham. Spurs were under a great deal of pressure ahead of the Manchester United game with Leicester City having opened up a ten-point lead, but while they needed a while to break the Red Devils, they kept their title hopes alive with a 3-0 triumph. Tottenham arrive at Britannia Stadium high on confidence and we expect them to emerge victorious on Monday evening.
