A Look At Stoke City’s Betting Odds
Stoke boss Mark Hughes is hoping his decision to rest key players for Saturday’s trip to Chelsea will pay dividend after that move resulted in a 5-0 thrashing at Stamford Bridge.
Xherdan Shaqiri, Joe Allen and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting were among those on the bench, with 18-year-old duo Tom Edwards and Josh Tymon handed rare starts in defence.
“I made decisions I feel will help us with the game we have on Monday,” Hughes said.
“We rested players carrying knocks who will be fresh and ready to go. The decisions weren’t easy but they were decisions I was prepared to make.”
The Potters had previously beaten West Brom 3-1 here and drew 1-1 at Huddersfield, so Hughes will be keen to recapture that form.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle crept to within a point of Stoke after a goalless stalemate with fellow new boys Brighton on home turf.
Rafael Benitez also rotated his squad on Saturday, making seven changes to the side that lost 1-0 to Manchester City.
The Spaniard admitted he had seen the clash with the Seagulls as a winnable game, but added: “If you cannot win, always it’s important that you are strong in defence and you do not give them too many chances.”
