Stoke City host Brighton at the Bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

Stoke dropped down into the relegation zone last weekend following their 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth. Xherdan Shaqiri opened the scoring early on before the Potters conceded two in the second half.

The result leaves Paul Lambert’s side with just one win in their last eight in all competitions.

Brighton don’t score many away from home…

Brighton moved up the table with a convincing 3-1 win at home to West Ham, extending their unbeaten run to three matches. Glenn Murray, Jose Izquierdo and Pascal Gross all got on the score sheet.

November’s reverse fixture saw the two sides draw 2-2 at the Amex. Pascal Gross and Jose Izquierdo scored for the Seagulls while Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Kurt Zouma scored for Stoke.

Stoke have the second worst home defensive record in the league this season, while Brighton have scored the fewest goals away from home in the division.
