Many at the Transfer Tavern were surprised when Stoke City were left with egg on their face, last time out, as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at home in the FA Cup to Championship side Wolves.
The Potters, then, will surely be looking to bounce back with a big win over an under-performing Sunderland side in the Premier League this weekend.
Stoke City have a team well equipped for European football, with the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Marko Arnautovic, but they find themselves in 11th and in need of a run of form in order to try and push on towards the Europa League spots.
Where better, then, to start than a game against Sunderland who find themselves in a relegation battle yet again this season and looking there for the beating at the moment.
With that, then, our landlord reckons this Stoke City XI will get a big win over Sunderland on Saturday…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
