What Trueform says for Tottenham vs Stoke
Tottenham are without a win in four Premier League matches and look worth opposing against Stoke judged on our Trueform ratings.
The Potters have had more positive results than negative marks of late and play the kind of football that should be suited to Wembley’s wide-open spaces.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham’s 1-1 draw at Watford last weekend wasn’t a bad effort in the circumstances, with Son Heung-min equalising Christian Kabasele’s early strike and Spurs then having to contend with the 52nd-minute dismissal of Davison Sanchez.
However, with that result following losses at Arsenal and Leicester, plus a home draw against West Brom, last season’s runners-up are now down in sixth place, 18 points off the summit.
Wednesday’s 3-0 defeat of APOEL at this venue did at least continue Tottenham’s excellent Champions League form, though.
Harry Kane was rested for that contest, so should be raring to go here and has a great record against Stoke, with February’s hat-trick making it six goals in the last three head-to-head encounters.
A Look At Stoke City’s Betting Odds
Stoke moved up to 13th in the table when securing a fourth win of the season by coming from behind to beat Swansea 2-1 on home turf.
Mark Hughes was pleased with the recovery after going a goal down in just the third minute, commenting: “It would have been very easy to feel sorry for ourselves.
“We had to show courage and character and clear our heads. We dusted ourselves down and set about trying to do something about the situation.”
The Potters have also been showing plenty of spirit on the road, with their last three away trips resulting in a win at Watford, a 2-2 draw at Brighton and a stoppage-time loss at Crystal Palace after they almost snatched a last-gasp victory themselves.
Swiss star Xherdan Shaqiri has been the catalyst for much of their good recent work, scoring in three of his last five Premier League appearances.
TOTTENHAM 3-0 APOEL – Fernando Llorente, Son Heung-min, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou Mbida
STOKE 2-1 Swansea – Xherdan Shaqiri, Mame Biram Diouf
Head-to-head: Tottenham 4-0 Stoke, Stoke 0-4 Tottenham, Stoke 0-4 Tottenham, Tottenham 2-2 Stoke, Stoke 3-0 Tottenham, Tottenham 1-2 Stoke
