Stoke City Vs. Tottenham Hotspur

CharlieAdams! Nohandshakes for the Stoke number 16 after thatPaulinhotackle at WHL and,Sandrois in the squad!

Stoke are looking to reach50 points for the first time in theirPremier Leaguehistory.Stokehave only lost once in their last eight games and haven't lost a home game since January.Asfor Spurs,afterthe Liverpoolresult,it`s been 2 wins and a comeback drawfor us,impressive form Tim!

2 Meter Peter isStoke`shighestscrorer, a wholeeight league goalsso far,awesome!Stokeonlyneed eight goals in their next three games to beat theirgoalscoringrecord in a Premier League season. Canthis article get anymore anal Ihear you ask? Yes it can!PeterOdemwingiesays Stoke are on a mission to end their seasonon a high.

They want to set a Britannia Stadium record and Mark Hughes' is looking to claim their highest Premier League points total, best top flight finish in 39 years and first topMidlandsclub title. And they could also set a new mark for fewest home defeats in a league campaign since moving to their new headquarters back in 1997.Stoke have only lost twice at home so far,they are chasing their best run since LouMacari'sDivision Two title-winning side only suffered two home defeats in 1992/93.......and what do all these facts add up to .....10thplace!

Meanwhileweare looking to addtoourthreematchunbeaten run andwestill have a very slim chance of qualifying for theEuropa,oh yes, let`s hear it for Sunday afternoon football.

Unfortunately,wehaven't won away from home since January.However, we have scored11 in ourlast3unbeatenstreakalthough wehave conceded five goals as well.

Stoke defender ErikPietersshould be fit toface Tottenham after aDehlibellyagainst Cardiff.
But MatthewEtheringtonand RobertHuthremain absent for the Potters.Dawson returns for Tottenham after a hamstring but JanVertonghenwill not make it.MousaDembeleis doubtful with an ankle injury, whileyes, you guessed it....EtienneCapoue, Kyle Walker andErikLamelaall remain unavailable for selection.Harry Kane, could start his fourth Premier League game this weekend,andhas scored in the last three games, the first player to do so this season for Spurs.
We havewon 41 of thelast77 league meetings betweenus andStoke. ThePotters have wonjust 19,and we have wonthree times at the Britannia since Hughes' men gained promotion in 2008.We are their bogey team

ZekiFryer`s "Stoke are always very good at home this will be a hard game forus"ZekiFryers has said that it will be 'difficult to win' whenwe meetStoke Cityat the Britannia Stadium this weekend.The defender told the club's website: 'Obviously we conceded in the first half against Fulham in a disappointing manner but overall we were strong and stable as a team.'Now we go to Stoke, who are a good side. They're a strong team and I know from watching other clubs go there that it's difficult to win there.'They make it hard for opposing teams so we've got a big challenge at the weekend and we're looking forward to it.'And so are weZeki, we can`t wait!

Tell you whatZekilet`s start them off with a 2 goal lead and then let`s play catch up!

Of Course giving away a lead won`t happen next season,not whenDavidMoyesisin charge, he will make sure we morph into mid table mediocrity achieving what Stoke and Evertonachieve!whichis? ......Nothing! However, welcome back StevenPienaarand helloFellaini.

Most puntersthinkStokewill be a bit too strong for aTottenhamteam that knows their manager won't be there next season. Actually they will be stronger than us because we knowMoyeswill be our manager next season!
