Stoke City take on the visitors Newcastle Utd at “bet365 Stadium” in the gameweek 22 of the English Premier League. The match will be played in Stoke-on-Trent on Monday, January 1st.
The upcoming hosts feel not so confident at its home field as it would like to, having gained four victories and two draws with 13 goals for and 19 goals against in 10 clashes conducted in front of their supporters. The team’s current shape is not so good with offense and defense looking very unconfident. Stoke City deserved quite suitable results in their last three home battles, having failed 0:3 against West Ham but broke West Bromwich 3:1 and Swansea 2:1.

“The Magpies” look not so good in this season. The away battles are very difficult for the team and thus it has lost six out of 10 clashes played on the road with only two triumphs gained in them. The club’s offense is a real disaster, having scored only 10 goals and conceded 17 goal instead. Thus, the side is evidently not in their best shape now. Newcastle Utd demonstrated poor performance in their recent away games, having beaten only West Ham with 3:2 scoreline while lost to Arsenal 0:1 and Chelsea 1:3.
There is no evident favourite in this pair. Both opponents need a victory badly and thus the battle promises to be very interesting. It is difficult to excel one of them but the previous head-to-head between the teams was finished in 2:1 triumph of “The Magpies”. The rivals have weak defense, therefore, I believe that there will be some goals scored in the forthcoming encounter.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 scored goals.
