Stoke City v Norwich City Preview, Premiership, Sunday 29th September 2013

Stoke City have had an average start to their new season campaign having won two, drawn 1 and lost 2, but they will see this game as the perfect chance to get back to winning ways having been defeated last weekend by Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium as their opponents on sunday lunch time are having a very difficult time of it at the moment and have lost three from their last four games.

The end could be nigh for Norwich City manager Chris Hughton as with Sunderland having shown Paolo Di Canio the door after a run of poor results the Norwich City board could be making their decision on whether Chris Hughton has a job or not come monday morning by the result of this match.

Stoke City v Norwich City Recent Form

Stoke City: W W D L W

Norwich City: W W L L W

Both sides have similar recent form heading into this game, Stoke City have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1. Norwich City have won 3 and lost 2, so neither side really has any real advantage here.

Stoke City v Norwich City Match Betting Odds Market.

Stoke City have the all important home advantage and they do have a pretty decent record at the Britannia Stadium so no real surprise to see the online bookmakers having them priced up as the clear favourites to win this game at odds of EVS with Betfred (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers).

The Draw might attract some interest as there is not much between the two sides on the recent form statistics and with all of the previous five games played between the two sides having been extremely tight affairs a current best price of 12/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) could prove to be the value here.

Norwich City don’t have a very good record away from home and difficult to see Chris Hughton’s side winning this game which could result in him having his contract terminated on monday morning and their current best price of 10/3 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) doesn’t look at all appealing for me.

Stoke City v Norwich City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Both managers will desperately want to win this game on sunday afternoon and for Chris Hughton it could mean the difference of waking up on monday morning and still having his job or not.

Stoke City have a decent record when playing in front of their home fans at the Britannia Stadium and for me they look the more likely to win this game as I have not really seen anything special from any of the Norwich City players that suggests they can remain in this division.

The goal statistics don’t suggest this game will see many goals so betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals, Time of First Goal, Both Teams to Score are all worth having a closer look at in the search for additional value, but for me Stoke City should prove too strong the longer this game goes on and come away with the all important 3pts.
