The Premier League predictor has given Stoke City a below average rating. Stoke has been less than impressive in terms of their consistency. They have shown great performances in some of the matches, while in others, they have been abject. They currently sit on the 16th spot in the Premier League table with just 5 points.
Stoke City are coming into this fixture after a crushing defeat at the hands of Chelsea at home. The game finished 0-4. As a result, their morale will be slightly low.
For Stoke, Jese and Xhaqiri are the key players. They have scored goals but again, like the rest of the team, they have not been consistent.
Stoke City are playing this fixture at their home ground, and they are quite known to perform well at their own stadium.
On the other hand, the Premier League predictor has given Southampton an above average rating. Southampton had a good start to their Premier League campaign. They currently sit on the 6th spot in the Premier League table with 11 points in 6 matches. That’s quite incredible for in the context of the current Premier League status.
Southampton are coming into this fixture with a loss against Man Utd. That game was played at Southampton’s home, yet it finished 0-1 in the favour of Man Utd. Thus, Southampton’s morale will be low and they would be hoping to further build up on that with a good result in their fixture against Stoke City.
For Southampton, Richarlison will be a key player going forward.
Lastly, the fact that Southampton will be playing this game away from home does put them at a disadvantage. However, if they keep their heads up, they have a good chance of achieving a good outcome.
