Tottenham are going through a slump in the league and have managed just one win in their last six league fixtures. Owing to their recent form, they have dropped down to the sixth spot in the league table. The North London side will be desperate to get back to winning ways this Saturday when they host Stoke City at London Stadium.
Spurs did claim a 3-0 Champions League win over Apoel Nicosia on Wednesday to win their group. Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping that his players can carry on in the same vein on Saturday, but Spurs’ league record at Wembley this season has been inconsistent at best.
Stoke will come into the game on the back of a come-from-behind 2-1 home win over Swansea City last weekend. It was Potters’ first win following a run of four games without one. As things stand, they find themselves in the 13th spot with 16 points.
The Potters’ main struggle this season has been their defence, as they have conceded 30 goals in their 15 games. Only West Ham United have done worse with 32 goals.
Last season, Spurs did a double over their opponents and won each fixture with a comprehensive scoreline of 4-0.
