Bounce back! After a heartbreaking loss to Everton two weeks ago, Tottenham were able to get back in the winning column with a defeat of Swansea. Sitting in fourth place, a win over Stoke could launch the team into third place.
Standing in the way of third is a vist from Stoke City. Dour as ever, the Pottters have utilized strong physical play with dominating defensive performances to sit midtable. Robert Huth and Ryan Shawcross are the marshalls of defense, trying to impose aerially. Peter Crouch is the main goal threat, leading the team with four tallies on the year.
As for the Prediction League, consecutive perfect predictions from Ashlock have him rolling. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League--one point for a correct prediction, a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:
