EPL Previews: Round 11

Premier League

Stoke City vs Leicester City – Stoke Look to End Claude Peul’s Honeymoon Period
Stoke City take on Leicester City at the Bet365 stadium on Saturday. After having recovered from heavy losses against the likes of Manchester City, Stoke City are looking to capitalise on home advantage and bring an end to Leicester City’s good run of form in recent weeks. After the departure of Craig Shakespeare, Leicester City have been slowly improving in fortunes. Unbeaten in the last five games across all competitions, Leicester City will be making the trip to the Bet365 stadium, which is always a difficult place to visit at this time of the year due to the cold and windy nature.
This promises to be an exciting match with both teams vying to get out of the bottom half of the table.

Newcastle United vs Bournemouth Preview – Tight and Cagey Affair
This has been a very difficult season for Bournemouth as the team finds itself in the bottom three of the Premier league coming into the match against Newcastle United. Eddie Howe has not been in this position and these are tough times for the club. Newcastle know all too well about being in the relegation zone and dropping down a division. However, the club have been doing relatively well since getting back from the Championship under the regime of Rafa Benitez.
A key factor for Bournemouth is the narrow defeats that the team has suffered at the hands of London outfits like Chelsea and Spurs. This clearly shows that Newcastle have to work in order to get a victory.

West Ham vs Liverpool Preview – West Ham Aim for First Win since September?
West Ham are searching for a first league victory since September as they have been unable to win the last three games. They are up against Liverpool at the London stadium this weekend. After having experienced several wobbles in recent weeks, Liverpool are far away from being able to challenge for the title. Even at this stage in the season, it is about finishing in the top four places and not about the title for Liverpool.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic continues to experience a lot of pressure, as his West Ham remain only a couple of places above the drop zone.
