Time is running out for Stoke City in their battle for survival this season, and we don’t see a turnaround in their fortunes this week. Relegation-favourites Stoke City will host high-flying Tottenham Hotspur at Bet365 Stadium on Saturday.
The Potters are without a win in their last eight games and have lost last three on the bounce. On Saturday, they lost 3-0 at Arsenal, and we don’t see their losing run coming to an end this week.
As things stand, Stoke find themselves in the 19th spot with 27 points. With six games left to play, Stoke are three points adrift of the safety, and they face an uphill battle in the last weeks of the season.
The Potters have struggled defensively this season, and with 61 goals against them, they have the worst defence in the season.
In the league, Spurs have won their last five games, and last Saturday, they almost confirmed a top-four finish with an impressive 3-1 win at Chelsea.
The North London side are placed fourth in the table with 64 points. They enjoy an eight-point lead over fifth-placed Chelsea. They also have a game in hand on third-placed Liverpool, who have 66 points on the board.
Earlier this season, Spurs claimed a 5-1 win over their opponents at Wembley Stadium.
