Stoke City Preview – Will Neil start with a home win?

Stoke City parted company with Michael O’Neill last week after the club had picked up just one win from their opening five matches. Caretaker manager Dean Holden guided City to a 1-0 win at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Alex Neil had a successful time during his spell with Sunderland, getting the Black Cats promoted to the Championship. It will be a tough task at the bet365 Stadium, but can the new manager guide the Potters to the play-offs this season?

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 1118 GMT, Tuesday 30 August)

Stoke have the chance to secure back-to-back wins for the first time this term, and the bookies are offering evens for a home victory.

Swansea City Preview – Will the Swans’ poor run continue?

Russell Martin’s Swansea City have had another difficult start to their season. The Swans are in the bottom three as we enter matchday seven, winning just one of their opening six fixtures. The Swans have already lost three times and have conceded five goals.

Since a hard-fought 1-0 win over Blackpool at Bloomfield Road in game three, the Welsh side have taken just one point from a possible nine. They have lost the last two to Luton Town and Huddersfield Town.

Swansea will be desperate for a positive result after back-to-back defeats, but this will no doubt be a stern test for the Welsh outfit. The bookies are offering 14/5 for an away win.
