This Preview for Newcastle United v Stoke City includes my Premier League Predictions and pre-match analysis for Match Week 29 of the EPL.
Despite their many injuries Newcastle did well enough in the transfer window that they should have the talent necessary for Saturday. They lost last weekend to Swansea, but Swansea have a good squad and only losing 1-0 was a decent result for them. Stoke have not been playing that well lately with only 2 wins in their past 10 matches.
I would say that both teams really need a win, but Newcastle will be more desperate than Stoke considering how close they are to the drop zone (only 6 points above).
I’m picking Newcastle for the win with a 1-0 prediction, but this is one of those matches that could easily swing either way. Stoke tend to sit back and defend, which I’m predicting will be dangerous against a strong attacking team like Newcastle.
Newcastle (W, W, L, W, L) 1 – 0 Stoke (D, L, W, L, L)
