On Saturday Stoke City host in-form Crystal Palace at the Britannia Stadium (Watch live, 11 a.m. ET and online via Live Extra) with the Potters aiming to continue their push up the table.
Mark Hughes’ men have won three of their last four but lost their last match 1-0 away at West Brom in a shocking display. Stoke know they’ll have to be on their guard when Palace roll into town as Alan Pardew’s side possess plenty of pace, power and confidence as they continue to sit in midtable after staving off relegation fears. A few more wins for the Eagles will all but secure their PL status for a second-straight season for the first time in history.
In team news Stoke start U.S. national team man Geoff Cameron in place of Phil Bardsley, while Palace bring in Pape Souare at left back.
