Michael Owen predicts Stoke v Newcastle

Stoke City will take on Newcastle United in the Premier League this evening.

Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Stoke City will win against Newcastle United at home on Wednesday evening.

Stoke will take on Newcastle at the Britannia Stadium in the Premier League.

The Potters will head into the game as favourites and will be expected to pick up all three points against the relegation-threatened Magpies.

Former Newcastle striker Owen believes that Stoke will win the encounter against Steve McClaren’s side.

The Potters have an excellent recent record against Newcastle at the Britannia winning four of the last five and they can take all three points against the Magpies who haven’t played since being thrashed 5-1 by Chelsea back on February 13th!” the former Liverpool and Manchester United striker wrote on Betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Stoke to win at 20/21.”

Stoke are ninth in the Premier League table at the moment with 39 points from 27 matches.

Mark Hughes’s side will head into the game against the Magpies on the back of a 2-1 victory over relegation candidates Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are currently second from bottom in the Premier League table with 24 points from 26 matches.

The Magpies have not played a competitive game since February 13 when they were hammered 5-1 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the league.
