Leicester City F.C. vs Stoke City F.C. predictions, betting tips and match preview

Leicester City F.C. vs Stoke City F.C. predictions for Saturday’s English Premier League match at the King Power Stadium. Leicester City F.C. to defend a 4-match 100% record.

Leicester City F.C. (15th in Premier League) aims to make it 5 wins out of 5 since Craig Shakespeare was given the reins, but Stoke City F.C. (9th in Premier League) could be worth backing to put a dent in the interim manager’s perfect record.

The improved form shown by the outgoing champions since Ranieri left the club has been absolutely remarkable.

Leicester City F.C. are now resembling the team that carried all before them the last EPL term, and a run of 4 straight wins since Craig Shakespeare became manager until the end of the EPL season has eased relegation fears and put them into the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

It looks highly likely that Shakespeare will be installed on a permanent basis, not least because he clearly has the players right behind him, barring a slide back into the danger zone.

Leicester City F.C. are short-priced favorites in this fixture but the value could be the Draw, especially if Stoke City F.C. produce a defensive performance like the one that earned them a point away to Manchester City recently from a goalless stalemate.

Stoke City F.C. made Chelsea pull out all the stops to beat them 2-1 with a late goal and although right-back Phil Bardsley will be suspended here after being sent off at the end of that match, Geoff Cameron can be switched to his position fairly seamlessly.

If Shakespeare can further sustain his fantastic start then the sky could be the limit for he and Leicester City F.C, who have already shown they are capable of miracles.
