Stoke City vs. Chelsea - Soccer Prediction

In a match of the 17th round of the Premier League, today at the Britannia Stadium, Stoke City and Chelsea will face against each other. In the last championship, the two teams have had one victory on their stadiums. In the first match, Stoke City had a success with 3:2, but then Chelsea won with the convincing 3-0 at Stamford Bridge. However, Stoke improved their condition lately, which makes drawing your soccer picks even more confusing and difficult. That does not mean it is impossible to do them right. You just need some valuable information – read on and you will find it.

The Potters finished in drew of 1-1 against the team of Crystal Palace in the final round, and previously won at home with 3-2 against Arsenal. Those 4 points brought the team of Stoke City on the 13th place in the standings with a total of 19 points. The coach Mark Hughes will decide just before the match whether to rely on Bojan Krkic and Stephen Ireland or not. Both have minor injuries and will pass a late fitness test before the game in Britain.

Out of the team of the potters are Marc Muniesa, Steve Sidwell, Victor Moses and Peter Odemvingi. If he recovers from the injury, Bojan Krkic will partner in charge of Stoke City with Peter Crouch and Mame Byram Diouf.

Chelsea defeated Hull in the final round with 2-0. Although that success, a downturn in the condition of Londoners is noticeable in the recent times. After the victory at Manchester City on Saturday over Crystal Palace with 3-0, the citizens shall be on the top of the ranking, altogether with Chelsea. So today’s game is very important from a psychological point of view, for the team of Jose Mourinho before the Christmas program in the Premier League. The good news for Portugal is that there will not be any major missing players in the team. Outs are Didier Drogba, Kurt Zuma and Nathan Eyck. Thibault Courtois will return after a thigh injury and will replace Peter Cech in front of the door. Cesc Fabregas will be back on the pitch as a partner of Nemanja Matic in the middle of midfield. The Spaniard was given a break against Hull City, but now he will be into the starting eleven of Jose Mourinho for the visit of Stoke City.

At the stadium Britannia, the matches are played pretty hard and the expectations of the experts from PicksMachine.Com are for a very interesting and tense match. Both teams make effective matches between each other recently and therefore, our soccer forecast is for above 2.5 goals in the game.
