Leicester City will be eager to return to winning ways in the league when they host relegation candidates Stoke City at King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The Foxes are going through a rough spell in the league and are without a win in their last three games. However, they managed a 1-0 home win over Sheffield United in the fifth round of the FA Cup last Friday. In their last league game, they had lost 5-1 at Manchester City.
The Foxes are currently placed eighth in the league table with 35 points. They are just a point behind Burnley in seventh, and European football remains a possibility as the seventh-placed side is likely to earn a qualifying spot in Europa League this season.
The Potters also come into this game without a win in their last three league games. However, they are second-from-bottom with 25 points, and in real danger of relegation.
They have had almost two weeks to prepare themselves for this game, and a win here would most definitely pull them out of the bottom three. However, they have been quite awful on the road in recent weeks, and we don’t expect a change in the trend this week.
Earlier this season, both sides played a 2-2 draw at Bet365 Stadium.
