Leicester v Stoke | Saturday 24th February 2018, 12:30 | Sky Sports

Claude Puel’s Leicester City side have failed to win each of their last three Premier League matches but come into this tie on the back of a 1-0 home win over Sheffield United in the FA Cup.

Stoke have also failed to win any of their last three in the Premier League themselves, but incredibly they will be just seven points off Leicester with a victory here – despite there being 11 places between the two sides!

Foxes Feed At Home

If we look at Leicester’s Premier League results on home soil, they are looking fairly stellar with six wins, three draws and four losses.

However, a closer look shows that only one of those defeats has come at the hands of a side currently outside the top four.

Therefore, they have only lost once this season at home this season to a team outside the top four.

Solid Defensive Record

Granted the club list reads Huddersfield, Fleetwood, Watford, Swansea and Sheff Utd, but in their last five home games in all competitions, Leicester have conceded just one goal.

That was against Swansea and in that game they can count themselves unlucky they didn't pick up three points too – Swansea only mustered two shots all game!

Stoke Away Day Blues

Stoke have won just one of their five games so far with Paul Lambert in charge, and sadly for them they have dropped points to several of the teams around them in the relegation battle.

The one victory came at the 365 Stadium where Stoke have actually picked up 76% of their points this season. The Potters have won just one away game this season, a 1-0 slog at Watford, and have been knocked out of both domestic cup competitions by lower league sides on the road too.

Stoke have lost their last three Premier League away games and scored less than a goal a game in the Premier League away from home clocking in with just 11 goals from 13 games.
