Stoke will certainly feel as if they have dodged a bullet this season. They are now safe from relegation, but they will need to look back on this season and answer some tough questions. Tottenham’s midweek draw was not enough to put themselves in the driving seat for a Champions League position, but it also means that they are still in it and can keep the pressure on Chelsea and Arsenal by continuing to win.
Tottenham’s recent form is to follow a draw with a win, which gives them a good (if odd) statistical chance for Sunday’s match. Tottenham are also in a position in which they absolutely need to keep on winning or their chances of finishing in the top four will quickly slip away.
Stoke are now safe and this just might lead to them letting off the gas a bit more. They slipped early on and showed that they are a team that can fall off when they are feeling safe.
I’m predicting a Tottenham win to keep their hopes of Champions League football alive. My prediction is for a close match with Tottenham most likely scoring in the second half.
Stoke City don’t really have the players capable of breaking down the high line offside trap that Spurs typically play, but could be a big nuisance on set pieces and may just grab a goal this way. They will also look to put Spurs off their game by playing aggressively and physically, something that could disrupt the flow of the game as well as Tottenham’s game plan.
Stoke (D, L, L, L, W, W, D) 0 – 2 Tottenham (L, W, D, W, D, W, D)
