    Stoke to cement top ten spot with third consecutive victory

    Probable Lineups:

    HullStokeStoke City (4-2-3-1): Begovic, Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters, Adam, Whelan, Odemwingie, N’Zonzi, Arnautovic, Crouch

    Stoke City come into the game with two successive wins, one at home and one away as they have been undefeated in their last four match up. Out of their last four games, a victory against Arsenal was a particular highlight as they look to make it three wins in three. Good news for Stoke is that Charlie Adam can return to the side after serving his three match ban for a stomp on Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud. Wilson Palacios looks to be the one that makes way for the return of Adam as that looks to be the only change from their victory against Aston Villa. The Potters will be without Jonathan Walters who is current serving a ban and will only be available in next weeks selection. Mark Hughes will be looking to attack down the flanks with Peter Odemwingie and Marko Arnautovic occupying the wings as target man Peter Crouch heads the tip of the attack.

    Hull City (4-4-2): Harper, Elmohamady, Davies, Chester, Rosenior, Sagno, Huddlestone, Livermore, Meyler, Jelavic, Long

    Steve Bruce’s Hull City haven’t picked up any type of form as of late, winning only two and losing four of their last six games. Hull currently sit in 13th place, eight points away from the relegation zone, therefore they need to keep winning and gather as many points as possible to ensure their safety. The Tigers will not have Allen McGregor available after his red card against West Ham on Wednesday night, with Steven Harper looking to fill in for the suspended ‘keeper. Maynor Figueroa could be replaced by Yannick Sagbo in midfield, with Alex Bruce looking to make way for Liam Rosenior at left back. Ahmed Elmohamady will be pushed back from his previous midfield role into the role of right back with Hull looking to field their usual midfield pairing as they support Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long up top.

    What the fans are saying…
    Remember this?

    Stoke City hosted Hull City at the Britannia in the 2005-2006 Championship season as Hull came out on top with a 3-0 win. The match saw the Hull goalkeeper make two penalty saves. Hopefully this encounter in England’s top flight will also have it’s fair share of drama.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Crouch

    With a goal and two assist in his last two games, Peter Crouch is the danger man for this fixture. Stoke City have built a team around him as they look to take advantage of his sheer aerial presence. With so many crosses coming in, he can either head the ball home or even play the flick to his teammates as we’ve seen so often. A true menace to defend against.
