England Premier League
(20 Nov 2017)
Brighton – Stoke
Brighton welcomes Stoke in a match of the 12th round of the English Premier League.
Brighton: After 4 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, the home team is taking the 9th position with 15 points won so far. However, the league position of Brighton might not tell the whole story, with them having amassed more points than would be expected based on performance. Another goal from Glenn Murray sealed the victory for them against Swansea City in their last game, taking his scoring streak to 3. Furthermore, Brighton is undefeated in their last 4 matches.
Stoke: The away team is currently in the 15th position in the league. They managed to win 12 points after 3 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. Also, visitors will be seeking to improve upon their 2 – 2 draw with Leicester City, a game in which both teams had good chances. This will be possible as the home team has difficulties in creating quality chances.
Conclusion: Both teams will be looking to their creative midfielders to continue providing assists as they have so far racked-up 11 between them in the Premier League. Brighton’s Pascal Groß and Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri will inspire and help their teammates to give their best. For that reason, this might be a balanced match featuring two even teams. Therefore, goals won’t be prevalent here.
