STOKE FORM    WEST BROM FORM                      



STYLE OF PLAY 

Stoke are great at creating chances but they are poor at defending counter attacks .West Brom are good at shooting from direct free kicks so we expect them to pin stoke with this .

HEAD TO HEAD 

In the last six games ,Stoke have been at home to West Brom ,they have beaten them only once ,drawn three times and lost two times .



TOP MATCH FACTS 

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Stoke's last 8 EPL home games .
There have been under 2.5 goals scored in West Brom's last 7 away EPL games 
West Brom have failed to win their last 16 EPL matches 
West Brom have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 away EPL matches 

OUR THOUGHTS 

West Brom might be motivated in  the fact that they put up a spirited performace against Manchester United and gave the Red Devils a run for their money .Also their history of beating Stoke or drawing with them might come into play .That however does not take away the fact that the visitors this season have just 11 % away win a poor form for the visitors .A win by West Brom will see them get out of the relegation zone while Stoke will be looking to get away from the zone as far away as possible .
