Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters extend unbeaten home run to three?

Stoke City’s season has yet to take off, as the Potters have taken just four points from four league games. They were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup at the first hurdle, losing to EFL League One side Morecambe.

Stoke followed up an opening weekend loss at Millwall with a 2-0 home success over Blackpool in game two. However, just one point has followed. City were involved in a four-goal draw with Middlesbrough in midweek, with D’Margio Wright-Phillips scoring at the death to rescue a point.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

All of Stoke’s points this season have come at the bet365 Stadium, and O’Neill’s City will be looking for a home win here.

Sunderland Preview – Can the Black Cats return home with a positive result?

Sunderland are finally back in the second tier of English football, and the Mackems plan on staying there. They have made a decent enough start, winning one, drawing two and losing one of four.

Alex Neil’s men went unbeaten for the first three games, drawing with Coventry City and Queens Park Rangers, and edging past Bristol City at Ashton Gate. They were narrowly beaten at Sheffield United in midweek, failing to recover after Daniel Neill’s 30th-minute red card.
