Stoke vs Arsenal Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Stoke City have lost only one of their last seven home matches against Arsenal (1:4), and Arsenal are aiming to win their opening two matches of a Premier League season for the first time since 2009/10. Last Saturdays match in the premier League, Stoke vs Arsenal will be a very good betting opportunity and a great chance to increase your betting ticket payouts with minimum risk.
STOKE CITY began the new Premier League season by losing 1:0 against Everton at Goodison Park. Everton was a better rival with 62% ball possession and 4 shots on goal. Mark Hughes played a 3-4-2-1 formation and he may tinker with the front line slightly to accommodate fellow new signing Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. Stoke are thought of as being a difficult side to beat on home soil, and in a lot of cases they are. However, last season they tended to crumble when they hosted the top teams, losing to Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Tottenham in the league and only taking points away from Manchester United. Stoke have signed Jese from Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan deal and he could be handed a full debut against Arsenal this weekend.
ARSENAL did not finish last season particularly well away from home. They have won their last 6 matches in Premier League and also scored at least 2 goals in their last 6 matches. Last match they played against Leicester and they won (4:3), but Leicester use all 3 shots on goal to hit Gunners net. Laurent Koscielny serves the final match of his suspension this weekend, but Shkodran Mustafi and Per Mertesacker are back in full training and will come into contention. Also, Alexis Sanchez is still not fit enough to make his first appearance of the season for Arsenal, but is expected back the following weekend.
