Southampton vs Stoke City 21 Nov 2015: EPL Preview and Predictions
21 November 2015/ 1000ET
Middle of the table clashes are often the games which have the most excitement and this week we see Southampton take on Stoke City at home. The two teams are only 4 points apart and both will be desperate to get a result out of this game.
Southampton have been in amazing form once again, only losing two games whole season. This team has surprised everyone since they seem to sell their best players each transfer window and still manage to do well. They have been able to do it again this season which once again makes them a solid team. This side as a whole is well balanced and they have managed to get amazing results all season. The only problem I can think of is that they have managed at times to draw games that they should be winning. Other than that this team is flying and at home they will believe that they can win.
Stoke on the other hand are doing better than expected. Many people thought that this side was going to get relegated and although it is still early in the season, they are well clear of the drop zone. This side will be coming into this game full of confidence after beating defending champions Chelsea in their last outing. Furthermore they also managed to knock Chelsea out of the League Cup. This game will not be easy for Stoke on the road but they will believe that they can get something out of it since their away record has been good. Stoke has only lost one away game and that was against Arsenal so there is a good chance they will get a result here.
Overall, this game will be one that will be well contested. Both sides will want a favorable result and I think that the draw is the most likely outcome. Southampton are massive favorites but Stoke have been good on the road and I think that they can hang on for a draw which is at 4.00. This is insane value and I think it is an amazing pick.
