Stoke vs Swansea Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
After a victory in their last match Stoke City got back on the track and bounced back from the bad run. They are only four points away from top five, and this match is a great opportunity to get closer to their goal. Two Manchesters and West Ham are their competition on that way, but even if they don’t get to top five, this would be their best placement ever. However since the November there are only two teams that gathered more points than them and its Leicester and Tottenham, first and second at the table. On the other side, Swansea secured themselves from the relegation zone with ten point advantage and now they enter each match more relaxed and more focused on actual play rather than on defense. They won in three of their last four and kept a clean sheet in two of their last three matches. However this season they conceded at least one goal in 93% of their away matches, but as a comfort, they also scored at least one in their last six away matches. when it comes to their mutual encounters, they are pretty much equal with two victories each with two draw matches in their last six encounters.
