Our match prediction:
Watford head into this game buoyed by the fact they have secured an FA Cup semi-final appearance at Wembley, as away win over holders Arsenal was a perfect way to book their place in the last four. The Hornets have done incredibly well to keep the rich vein of form throughout the campaign and they do not appear to be slowing down. Quique Sanchez Flores’s side are strong at the back, while extremely dangerous up front and we predict that the likes of Ighalo and Deeney will make life difficult for Mark Hughes’ defenders as well. Stoke City have played some good football of late, notching up three straight wins before holding Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, but the shocking performance in the home defeat to Southampton is enough to suggest the good run is in the past now. It appears that the Potters no longer have the motivation needed to play to their potential and we cannot see them stopping Watford in their tracks.
