Stoke v Newcastle Premier League Preview, 1st January 3.00pm
There is a huge three points up for grabs in this battle at the Bet365 Stadium on Saturday. Stoke have actually won two of their last three on home soil and will be looking to improve further to get themselves up the table a bit. Newcastle have had some major struggles out on the road this season but will be looking to make it back to back away wins for the first time this season after beating West Ham last time out on the road. Stoke are 5/4 to get the maximum points, with Newcastle at 2/1 and the draw at 12/5.
Stoke News and Form
The Potters haven’t had a great season overall but they are W4 D2 L4 at home and they have won two of their last three at the Bet365 Stadium so that suggests that they could battle their way to something in this one. Stoke won their last home fixture 3-1 against West Brom just before Christmas and they have managed only the one clean sheet on home soil all season. Overall home and away in their last ten league games, Stoke are without a clean sheet. Both teams to score at William Hill is a valuable option probably then for the game. Stoke have scored thirteen goals in their ten home games so far while they have conceded at just under two goals per game on averaging. 90% of their games at the Bet365 Stadium this season have gone above 2.5 goals. Three of their four home wins in the top flight this season have been by a one goal margin only, the win over West Brom the exception to that. Stoke to win by one goal margin at William Hill is trading at a price of 5/2. 70% of their points earned in the Premier League season have come from their home games. Eric Maximum Choupo-Moting is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option alongside Mame Biram Diouf. They are Stoke’s joint top scorers at home with three each.
Newcastle News and Form
The Magpies managed to stop their poor form on the road with a win at West Ham on December 23rd. That snapped a dreadful sequence of results on the road (D2 L5) that they were running on. The question is, can they build on that though? Their overall away record in the top flight reads W2 D2 L6 for the season and a half time draw at William Hill may be worth a flutter as the Magpies have been drawing at half time in five of their ten away games so far. Newcastle are only averaging a goal per game away from St James Park this season while they have shipped at an average of 1.7 goals per game on the road. They have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last eight away games in the top flight which means that they will be vulnerable in this one, even against an unconvincing Stoke side. Dwight Gayle is the only Newcastle player to have managed more than one goal for the team away from home this season and he is a 9/4 anytime goalscorer option. The Magpies have conceded the opening goal in six of their ten away fixtures this season.
Stoke v Newcastle Head to Head
The Potters suffered a 2-1 loss at St James’ Park earlier in the season and in the last six Premier League meetings, the Potters are W3 D2 L1 against Newcastle. Each of the last three league games between these two at Stoke have all ended in a 1-0 home victory for the Potters. Five of the last six meetings have gone under 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Stoke v Newcastle Predictions
Stoke look the value option going into this one to get three points on the board. They are wildly inconsistent but should have enough going forward to take down the Magpies who have struggled for goals out on the road.
