Stoke-City
VS
Southampton
In the weekend Stoke defeated Liverpool 3-1. They are still undefeated at home. And this home record with fans support help them to keep a good position in Premier League. It is really difficult to stop Stoke recently especially when they are at home. There are important players in their squad who can change the score in any minute of the game. And you can not underestimate their bench as well. There is an other record I have to mention here is that Stoke are undefeated in the last 9 official matches. The physical strength of Stoke is above the standards of Premier League. A special note is that last match against Liverpool, Stoke managed to record 3 goals in one match which happened first time this season. However there is no match that Stoke won easily. Bad news for Stoke is the absent players in defense line. Geoff Cameron and Ryan Shawcross are absent. The return of striker Crouch is a good news.

 

Last minute goal against Fulham, Nigel Adkins must have inhaled a deep breathe. It did not seem like Southampton could hit the nets but the defender of Fulham Baird assisted them. That was of course a happy draw 1-1 at away. This match will be a good test for the defense of Southampton. It is true that Southampton are playing defensive in recent matches as they are close to the dangerous zone. I do not believe they can easily hit the nets of Stoke today. And if they concede the first goal I do not expect them to come back. Playing against Stoke who are efficient in set pieces, Southampton have a difficult task today. Southampton have a limited capacity in Premier League and in fact I believe they are not as good team as Stoke. Southampton are consist of players who struggle good but when you check the stats you find out that they can not dominate the majority of the game.

 

It is of course true that Stoke have problems with missing players in defense line as Shawcross and Cameron are suspended. But how much can Southampton benefit with a weak offense line? Stoke with classical long balls will threaten the visitors and Southampton will try to reply by running and struggling. I except a result of 2-0pin
