Predicted Stoke City and Southampton line-ups

Stoke Britannia Stadium

Here are the potential teams as Southampton visit Stoke this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 18th April 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Britannia Stadium, Stoke

Odds: Stoke 13/5, Draw 23/10, Southampton 13/10

Stoke City will head into their game against Southampton this weekend on a high after they secured a late point in the game against West Ham.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes will most likely be hoping for a more comfortable performance from his side and they should be looking to make the most of their home advantage in this game.

A win for Stoke could move them above West Ham United and to within a point of Swansea if they secure a victory and other results go their way.

Southampton are also going to be confident heading into this game after a 2-0 win in a match where they had too much for Hull City.

Ronald Koeman will be hopeful that the Saints can press on and secure European football for next season, but he will be wary of the threat coming towards his side in this game, as Stoke could make things difficult with a physical approach.

A win for the Saints could move them above Liverpool in the table and to within two points of current champions Manchester City.
