Stoke City look to turn around their worst-ever start to a Premier League season at KC Stadium, live on NBCSN at 12:30pm ET or live online at NBS Sports Live Extra.
Hull City are surprising many in 12th place, and despite the battle internally to change their name to Hull City Tigers, the product on the pitch has been bright.
Both teams are searching for a result to get them out of the jumble that is the bottom half of the table, with the gap between 10th and 15th just a meager two points.
Mark Hughes is sticking with giant Peter Crouch at the front, having shaken his goalscoring drought last week. The 32-year-old has just two goals on the season.
Hull City – McGregor; Chester, Bruce, Davies, Figueroa; Elmohamady, Meyler, Huddlestone, Livermore, Sagbo; Graham.
Bench – Harper, Rosenior, Koren, Brady, McShane, Boyd, Faye.
Stoke City – Begovic; Muniesa, Whelan, Cameron, Wilson; N’Zonzi, Shawcross, Arnautovic, Assaidi, Ireland; Crouch.
Bench – Sorenesen, Pieters, Pennant, Palacios, Jones, Adam, Wilkinson.
