Stoke City vs Southampton Predictions & Betting Tips, Match Previews England Premier League Wednesday, 14th December 2016

Stoke City vs Southampton
England Premier League.
Date: Wednesday, 14th December 2016,
Kick-off at 19:45 UK.
Venue: Britannia Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent.

Mark Hughes' men are rolling in the right direction after a slow start to the campaign. They were on a run of just one win in 14 Premier League matches but have now won five of the last eight games, including three of the last four at home.
Stoke conceded more than one goal for the first time in 10 Premier League games in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Arsenal.

On current form, Southampton may struggle to match Arsenal's goalscoring exploits as they've only scored 14 goals in their 15 Premier League games this season.
Team news

Marc Muniesa and Glen Johnson are doubts for Stoke following last weekend's defeat to Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Ryan Shawcross and Jonathan Walters could both return to training on Tuesday but Hughes is unsure whether they'll be fit for selection.

Jack Butland, Ibrahim Afellay, Geoff Cameron and Phil Bardsley all remain long-term absentees. 

Stoke City vs Southampton: Head-to-head stats

Southampton came to the Britannia stadium and returned with a 2-1 win when the sides met in the Premier League last season. This broke Stoke City’s 5 match unbeaten run at home against the Saints in league matches in which they picked 2 wins and 3 draws.

Both teams have scored in the last 8 matches at the Britannia Stadium between the two in all competitions. And 7 of those have seen over 2.5 goals.

Southampton led the last 9 head-to-head meetings against Stoke in all venues with 3 wins, 4 draws and 2 defeats.

Stoke City vs Southampton: Prediction

Sunderland are tipped as favourites by many bookmakers for this particular clash. But we believe that Stoke City have the better chance to come out as winners on the basis of their recent home form. To add to this, Southampton were poor on the road all though out the season. However, this will be a tight clash, but expect Mark Hughes men to edge a narrow win here.

The predicted full-time score for this match is a 2-1 win for Stoke City at the odds of 13.00 (12/1).
