Burnley v Stoke Premier League Preview, 12th December 7.45pm
Once again there is no keeping Burnley down as they bounced back from a defeat to post a good win for themselves on the weekend at home against Watford. With their defence going so well, they will be fancied to do a number on Stoke as well. The Potters took a hammering out on the road at Spurs on the weekend to slip to their third loss in their last five fixtures and they go as 11/5 underdogs at William Hill in this one with the draw at 11/5 and Burnley at 5/4.
Burnley News and Form
The Clarets got back to business well on the weekend in taking a 1-0 home win over Watford. Once again after a loss this season, they have responded with a win. They have done that after three of their four league defeats this season. Their home from now reads W4 D2 L2 this season and they have won three of their last four there and each of their four home victories have all been with a clean sheet. Burnley to win to nil at William Hill is a viable option therefore for this Tuesday night duel. The Clarets have only given up the three goals on home soil this season and under 2.5 goals should be expected again. Burnley are a massive eleven points better off than they were at this stage last season. Seven of the eight wins that they have earned this season have all been by a one goal margin so if you are expecting a home win here then consider looking for the margin as well. They are so well organised at the back and they don’t look as if they are going to crumble and concede heavily anytime soon. This is really another good chance for them to impose themselves and could climb up to four temporarily with a victory.
Stoke News and Form
Stoke couldn’t handle the class and quality of a rampant Tottenham side on the weekend as they slumped to a 5-1 defeat. That is their third loss in their last four league games now, the only exception being a 2-1 home win over Swansea at the start of decent. The Potters are struggling and that victory over the Swans is their only win in their last six league matches now. Away from home Stoke have gone W1 D2 L5 this season and have lost their last two back to back. Boss Mark Hughes has been trimmed in the next Premier League manager to go market. He must be on thin ice as it’s been a really poor season for them. Stoke have conceded more goals than anyone else has done in the top flight this season at an average of over two goals per game so they are going to be vulnerable. Stoke have now lost four games by a margin of three goals or more this season. A Burnley 1-0 correct score is a 6/1 option at William Hill for the game. Stoke have conceded twenty goals in their eight games away from home this season and have just the one clean sheet on their travels.
Burnley v Stoke Head to Head
The Clarets won this corresponding fixture 1-0 last season and they are unbeaten in their three previous Premier League home games against Stoke (W1 D2). Over the six previous Premier League meetings, Burnley holds a W2 D2 L2 record so things are even between them. Only one of these six meetings went over 2.5 goals incidentally and in just two of them did both teams score.
Who will win – Burnley v Stoke Predictions
Burnley can get it done again because Stoke are still struggling and have little away from to speak off. The Clarets are so organised at the back that they can gather up a clean sheet in the game and earn themselves another good three points.
