    Leicester City v Stoke City Betting Predictions and Match Preview

    Leicester City host Stoke City in matchday 28 of the Premier League on Saturday 24th February, 12:30pm at King Power Stadium. The hosts currently sit in 8th place in the table having lost against Manchester City 5-1 last time out, while the visitors are in 19th after their 1-1 draw against Brighton and Hove Albion.

    Relegation-threatened Stoke have been truly awful on their travels in recent times, suffering nine defeats in 13 trips and collecting just a single point from the last 21 available, so a Leicester team who have won five of their previous nine home games at this level start as 65% favourites for victory in the eyes of our Kickoff predictive algorithm.

    Last Season's Score
    The Foxes ran out comfortable 2-0 winners in this fixture last season thanks to goals from Wilfred Ndidi and Jamie Vardy and the chances of that scoreline being repeated this time around are rated at a healthy 12%.

    Team News For Leicester City
    A knee injury has kept Shinji Okazaki on the sidelines recently and the likeable Japanese international remains doubtful for this contest.

    Team News For Stoke City
    Having missed his side’s last game against Brighton two weeks ago, Peter Crouch will be hoping to shake off an ankle problem in order to feature in this match.

    First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
    Jamie Vardy has found the net in four consecutive Premier League fixtures, evoking memories of his record-breaking scoring streak during the Foxes’ title-winning campaign, and the in-form striker starts as the 19% favourite to break the deadlock here.

    This clash will take place at the King Power Stadium at 12:30pm on Saturday 24th February and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Premier League. Highlights will be shown on Match of the Day later that evening at 10:30pm.
