      Analysis: Stoke City vs Arsenal (17 January 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: January 14 2016, 21:07 »

      Stoke City and Arsenal face at Britannia Stadium, in a match for the 22th round of the Premier League. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 12‑09‑2015, Arsenal got a home win by (2‑0). At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 3 wins and 2 draws in the last 5 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 06‑12‑2014, in a match for the Premier League, Stoke City won by (3‑2). The goals of the match were scored by P. Crouch (1' ), Bojan (35' ) and J. Walters (45' ), for Stoke City, and by Cazorla (68' ) and A. Ramsey (70' ), for Arsenal. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Arsenal presents significant differences between home and away performances.

      Analysis of Stoke City

      The home team is currently in the 7th position of the league, with 32 points won, after 9 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against West Bromwich Albion, by (2‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Norwich City, by (3‑1). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 15 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 13 conceded. In the last 10 home league matches Stoke City has a record of 5 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses, so they have won 16 points out of 30 possible. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 8 of their 21 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

      Stoke City is going through a very positive moment of the season after the excellent results conquered against theoretically stronger opponents. Stoke usually plays with an offensive strategy, being the midfield composed of technical top players as in the case of Arnautovic, Afellay and Bojan. The Austrian Arnautovic is the best team scorer with seven goals. However, it must be observed that the home team has weaknesses in defensive dead balls. For this match, the coach Mark Hughes won’t count on Cameron, Muniesa, Ireland, Given and Shaqiri, all recovering from injury. 

      Analysis of Arsenal

      The away team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 43 points won, after 13 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Newcastle United, by (1‑0). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Liverpool, by (3‑3). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 26 goals scored and 25 conceded; against 11 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 27 goals scored and 10 conceded. In the last 10 away league matches Arsenal has a record of 5 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 17 points out of 30 possible. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 11 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 10 of the last 11 matches for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 21 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      The leader of the competition comes for this match after a big draw, by 3-3, against Arsenal, recording the fourth consecutive match without losing. In this match it’s foreseeable that the Arsène Wenger will play with the same opponent's tactical system, ie 4-2-3-1; however, they will focus on the ball possession and paused attacks to attack. It’s important to note the best player of the visiting team: Ozil is in great shape and can decide the match at any time. Giroud is still the best team scorer with 18 goals scored. For this match the coach won’t count on a large number of players: Rosicky, Wilshere, Cazorla, Sanchez Ospina, Welbeck and Coquelin. 

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match will be Stoke City to score at least one goal. Taking into account the exhibitions of Stoke City at home, can be expectable they will take advantage of some defensive mistakes and score the opponent's goal. Thus, and playing away home, Arsenal will have to score as much as an occasion if they want to win this match.
