John Walters ends a  run of 122 consecutive Premier League starts as a thigh problem consigns him to the bench at the Britannia Stadium.

That’s the only change Mark Hughes makes from the side that lost 4-0 at Everton at the weekend as he seeks a big reaction from his players against newly promoted Cardiff City.

Malkay Mackay will also be looking for a reaction from his players after their 3-0 loss to Arsenal and he keeps his faith the XI that started that game on Saturday.

Stoke City: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross (c), Wilson, Pieters; Arnautovic, Nzonzi, Whelan, Adam, Assaidi; Crouch.

Cardiff City: Marshall, Caulker (C), Turner, Whittingham, Medel, Campbell, Gunnarsson, Mutch, Cowie, Theophile-Catherine, John.
