Stoke City manager Mark Hughes and pay per head sportsbooks believe that the team’s progression is highlighted after their win over Chelsea.
Pay per head sportsbooks can see that Stoke City are in transition after former boss Tony Pulis was replaced by Hughes in the dugout during the close season.
Hughes also set about making changes to the club’s playing style as they look to improve on their 13th-placed finish last season in the Premier League.
Price per head services saw that Saturday’s 3-2 win, which was accomplished thanks to a late goal by from Oussama Assaidi, extended the team’s run to only one loss in seven cup and league games, and Hughes believes that his side are on track even though this term they took some time to get going.
“I suppose people will say we need a little bit of credibility because we’re trying to change things,” said the Welshman.
“People may suggest that we weren’t doing particularly well – I would argue that point because we were not a million miles away from where we thought we would be at this moment in time.
“We had a poor performance, in fairness, against Everton (in a 4-0 defeat last month). That was a disappointment, but I said at the beginning of the year that we were going to have days where we’re not particularly good at what we’re trying to do and other days when we are better.
“Today was certainly one of those days.”
The one negative point from Stoke’s win was an injury scare for midfielder Charlie Adam, who early in the match was forced off with a dead leg, concerning many fans and pay per head sportsbooks.
But pay per head sportsbooks know that Hughes does not expect the Scotland international to be on the sidelines for long.
“He got a bang on the outside of his leg,” confirmed Hughes. “He should be okay, I don’t think there’s any significance to it but he couldn’t continue.

“It’s a shame for Charlie because he played really well on Wednesday (against Cardiff City) but that gave the opportunity for Stevie Ireland to come in and he had a great game.”
