Match Preview : Stoke vs Watford

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

Stoke came close to ending Chelsea’s stunning winning run but ended up losing 4-2. Mark Hughes will expect nothing other than three points against an injury hit Watford side on Tuesday night to end their run of five games without a win.

Watford were humilated 4-1 by Tottenham last time out and are struggling to cope with a number of key absences. With fixtures coming thick and fast their poor run of form should really continue here. The Hornets have lost three of their last four. Naijabet.com

There have been under 2.5 goals in five of the last six meetings between these teams and that could continue here. Stoke haven’t even scored in the last four matches they’ve hosted against Watford but that should end here.

Bournemouth bounced back from back-to-back defeats with a resounding 3-0 win at Swansea at New Year’s Eve and will hope to take advantage of the extra day’s rest ahead of the welcome of Arsenal.

The Cherries, however, have lost their three Premier League meetings with the north London outfit, conceding seven in the process.

Following back-to-back losses, Arsenal have secured back-to-back wins following victories over West Brom and Crystal Palace. That being said, they have won just one of their last four away Premier League games, with the two defeats coming at Everton and Manchester City.

Bournemouth will be confident on home turf, but Arsenal could make it three successive league wins when they make the trip to the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night. Place your bet on Naijabet.com
