Stoke City vs West Bromwich Albion Predictions


A Battle of Momentum vs. Determination

Key Stats
– Stoke City have scored at least three goals in each of their last four victories.
– West Brom have only failed to score in one of their last nine competitive games.
– Stoke City boast a commendable ball possession statistic of 71%.

Kicking off the season with a whopping 4-1 victory over Rotherham, Stoke City showcased their intent and are now poised to take on West Brom in their next encounter. This triumphant start for Stoke comes after they concluded the previous season with four successive home defeats. Such a turnaround signals Stoke’s potential resurgence and their determination to change their narrative this season.

West Brom’s Shaky Form

Contrarily, West Brom experienced a setback with a 2-1 loss against Blackburn. Falling 2-0 behind early in the game proved too steep a hill for them to climb.

Reflecting on their recent performances, West Brom have now suffered defeats in four of their last five Championship games, a record that stretches back to last season. Their confidence seems to be waning, evident in their recent performance at Ewood Park.

Detailed Team Analysis

BettingTips4You Expert Rating indicates Stoke City’s average rating for this competition stands at 7.05, placing them 8th out of 22. Their top player, André Vidigal, notably started his journey with Stoke by netting two goals against Rotherham.

On the other side, West Brom’s average BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 6.74 places them further down the pecking order at 16th. With a ball possession of 41%, their top player, Matt Phillips, has an impressive rating of 7.60.

1. Both Teams to Score

Reasoning: When analysing the past games of both teams, it’s clear that there’s an offensive rhythm in play. Stoke, despite their commanding win over Rotherham, have shown a defensive vulnerability at home, having conceded in eight of their last nine competitive home games. On the other hand, West Brom’s recent records showcase a propensity for both teams to score. In four of their last five competitive games, both they and their opponents have found the back of the net. This pattern, combined with the fact that Stoke conceded in both league meetings with West Brom last season, makes this prediction a grounded choice.

2. Correct Score: 3-1 in favour of Stoke

Reasoning: Stoke City started the season on a high, delivering a 4-1 win over Rotherham, which is a testament to their scoring ability. Moreover, when Stoke secures a win, they’ve often done it in style, scoring at least three goals in each of their last four victories. While West Brom suffered a setback in their previous match, they have consistently demonstrated the capability to score. Therefore, given Stoke’s strong home performance and West Brom’s recent scoring trend, a 3-1 scoreline in favour of Stoke seems plausible.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: André Vidigal

Reasoning: André Filipe Cunha Vidigal’s recent performance provides a promising outlook. In his debut match for Stoke, he scored twice, immediately placing him in the spotlight as a significant offensive threat. His exceptional BettingTips4You rating of 8.30 further attests to his impressive form and ability to impact the game. Considering his current form and the upcoming match against West Brom, Vidigal seems a prime candidate to score during the game. Given West Brom’s defensive vulnerabilities shown in recent matches, Vidigal’s attacking prowess might very well shine through.
