Stoke City v Swansea City Preview, Premiership, 31st October 2016

Stoke have had a tough start to their new season and have managed to secure just 9pts from their opening nine matches played which currently has them placed in 17th position of the premiership league table.

The hosts have won two, drawn three and lost four overall, but do head into this game on the back of two successive victories and with home advantage both the fans and players will be hoping to add what would be another important 3pts to their tally.

Swansea City have also had a difficult start to their new season and have managed to secure just 5pts from their opening nine matches played and they currently occupy 19th position in the premiership league table.

The visitors have won one, drawn two and lost six and with recent results showing them having lost four of their last five matches played, they really do look up against it here against a strong Stoke City side.

Stoke City Team News :

The hosts will be without the services of Glenn Johnson, Jack Butland and Ibrahim Afellay for this match as all three players continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems.

There are also major doubts over Geoff Cameron and Phil Bardsley and both players will be assessed on Monday morning to see if either of them can be available.

Swansea City Team News :

The visitors have no fresh injury related problems or suspensions for this match. Fernando Llorente is likely to be included in the starting lineup having now fully recovered from a rib and knee injury and Jefferson Montero is also likely to make the squad having returned back into training last week after six weeks out with a calf injury.

Stoke City v Swansea City Head to Head Statistics:

Monday night’s game from the Bet365 Stadium will become the 17th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Stoke City have won 5 times overall with 4 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Swansea City have managed to secure 7 victories overall with 2 of those having came away from home but with the visitors having won just one match from their opening nine matches played, it looks unlikely that win number eight will be forthcoming on Monday night.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows Stoke with a slight advantage having won two times, compared to Swansea City having won just the one and the remaining two matches having finished all square.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

24 of those Goals have came in the 8 previous matches played at the Bet365 Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of exactly 3.00.

Based on both sets of data shown above it does seem to suggest that this game should see at least a couple of goals scored on Monday night and the goals betting market Total Match Goals 2 or 3 looks a good option here.

Stoke City v Swansea City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Stoke have looked like they have started to turn the corner in recent weeks after a bad opening few weeks of the new season and the whole squad will be in confident mood of securing the maximum points from this game on Monday night.

Swansea City have also had a terrible start to their new campaign, but unlike their hosts there doesn’t seem to be any signs of them improving as their recent form stats clearly show with them having won none, drawn one and lost four of their last five league matches played.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Stoke City to Win as with home advantage and heading into this game on the back of two wins, they look the in form side and definitely good value to take maximum points from a struggling Swansea City side.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is also going to be for Bojan to Score 1st Goal of the Game, as he hasn’t quite got going yet this season in front of goal and this game provides him with a great opportunity to get his name on the score-sheet.
