Stoke City vs Watford Prediction 31 January 2018

Tournament: 
Location: 
Match date: 

On January 31 2018 at 20:00 at the Bet365 Stadium in Stoke-on-Trent the local Stoke City will play against Watford in the forthcoming match of the English Premier League.

Stoke City are obviously having a horrible season now. They have only gained 23 points in their 24 matches played. Not many experts expected Stoke to be in the relegation zone and yet now they are below the red line. Their manager was replaced not long ago and appointed Lambert. Moreover, Stoke played their latest game pretty long ago compared to Watford and they will be more fresh and well-prepared. Moreover, Stoke don’t have any important players missing now which will give them some advantage too.

Watford also had their manager replaced not long ago and they their new coach Garcia didn’t have a very successful start. They lost to the outsiders Southampton 1:0 and they could even lose with a bigger score. Moreover, the game finished with a fight between the footballers and fans which proves that the situation in the lockers is far from perfection.

Garcia is known to be good at strategy and yet he needs some time and some footballers to achieve success. There are a lot of important players missing from the squad because of the injuries. Watford played their cup game this weekend while Stoke had an opportunity to have rest.

All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that the hosts are much more likely to gain points this time avoiding a loss.
