Premier League Treble: Stoke to regain the winning thread

Can Bojan lead Stoke to a return to form?
Can Bojan lead Stoke to a return to form?

It's another Premier League treble for Paul Robinson this weekend and it pays a very generous 18/1. Here are his selections...

"Back Stoke @ 4.0 (3/1)

Back Everton @ 1.53 (8/15)

Back West Ham @ 3.1 (21/10)

The Treble pays approximately 18.97 (18/1)"

Bet 1: Stoke @ 4.0 (3/1)

Things haven't been going very well for Stoke of late as they have been knocked out of both cup competitions and been beaten in three straight league games. They have gone four without even scoring a goal in the Premier League and after looking like challengers for the European places in January, they are now in the bottom half of the table.

I just think that Mark Hughes' side are massively overpriced for their visit to the south coast this weekend as you don't become a bad team overnight. Bojan was an unused substitute against Everton but after penning a new deal with the club this week, I expect him to start, and possibly prove a point.

The Cherries won't be picked off easily and while they were beaten by Arsenal on Sunday, prior to that it was three wins out of four in all competitions. Benik Afobe has hit the ground running since his big money move from Wolves but I'm still not convinced by Eddie Howe's men on the whole, and this is a Stoke team who have won at the likes of Everton and Southampton already this term.

Bet 2: Everton @ 1.53 (8/15)

This is the banker of the weekend in my eyes as Everton have returned to form this month, winning their last three matches by three goals to nil.

Scoring goals was never the issue for The Toffees so the most pleasing thing about their recent results are the clean sheets. Ross Barkley has also stepped up his game by adding goals - four in four - and he will be looking to continue that form ahead of the Euros this summer.

Romelu Lukaku slotted his first goal in seven starts at Stoke last time out and with Aaron Lennon netting in three consecutive games for the first time in his career, the goals are being spread all over the team.

West Brom will travel to Merseyside with a degree of trepidation and they needed penalties to get past League One's Peterborough in the cup on Wednesday night.

Tony Pulis hasn't quite got his side firing this year and they haven't won a Premier League game since January 2nd. It's three defeats in four away from The Hawthorns and that includes losses at Swansea and Newcastle - two of the poorer teams in the division.

Bet 3: West Ham @ 3.1 (21/10)

Our third and final selection is a similar story to the first. It sees an upper to mid-table team travel to a newly promoted club who are battling for survival.

The Hammers won through to the next round of the FA Cup on Tuesday night and while they were forced to play 120 minutes to get there, I don't think it will leave them with tired legs at Carrow Road.

West Ham have been the kings of the road this season as they have already taken all three points from Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City, to name but three.

Norwich on the other hand have now lost six straight matches in all competitions, to an aggregate scoreline of 19-5. The defence have been porous and Alex Neil's side have conceded 11 goals in their last three outings in front of their own fans.

Slaven Bilic needs his players to put in a decent performance to keep the pressure on Manchester United above them and I definitely think that they are too big a price to pick up another away win.
