Stoke City vs West Bromwich will play on Monday evening one of the most interesting games of 15th Round in English Championship. This game will be held at Bet365 Stadium, in Stoke on Trent. The 24th place of second English highest league will face at 3rd place standing team with a great perspective to take the top place after this meeting. This should be a very interesting game since both teams will be extremely motivated by taking possible points here. Read our thoughts about this thrilling English Championship Stoke City vs West Bromich match, here below.

Stoke City vs West Bromwich

Both teams started this season absolutely differently. While West Bromwich Albion is fighting in every match trying to take the lead in Championship, Stoke looks very weak facing even weaker opponents. After 14th round, the Potters stand at 24th (last) place in Standings with only 2 wins and 10 defeats. The Baggies look much better after 14th rounds, as they are standing at 3rd place with only 1 defeat so far, what is the best result in Championship. In the last game at Bet365 Stadium, Stoke won over the Fulham. They took very important 3 points and little breath of confidence. However, weakest form showing team doesn’t achieve a lot in the next games, as they lost playing away against Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall.

In this case, Albion has 4 unbeaten streaks with two wins and last 2 games draw. Away, West Brom lost only to Leeds United, which stands at the moment at 1st place and targetting Premier League as the season goal. During the last season, the Throstles already proved their dominance ver the Stoke City, so we expect the same result on Monday evening too.

Surprisingly, but Stoke City is a more valuable team. They have very talented players, which already played for the national teams and were very interested in European giants. Jack Butland, Bruno Martins Indi, Joe Allen, Ryan Shawcross and several others shouldn’t be underestimated. In West Bromwich we can find two or three well-known players in England, however, they are strong by team play, not individually.

Injuries

Hosts will play without strongest central defender Ryan Shawcross due to injury. For West Bromwich Albion will not play Jake Livermore and Nathan Ferguson due to injury and red card suspension.
