Stoke could revert to an exciting (1)4-3-3. Butland will retain his goalkeeping position. The back four looks to contain Bauer, Zouma, Shawcross and Pieters. The back line still with battles with lots of injuries, however things seem to be returning to normal for Stoke City now, following some decent form of late. Allen and Fletcher are tipped to start in the central midfield position with Ndiaye. Shaqiri and Choupo-Moting could be seen roaming the wide areas of the pitch. It is expected that Diouf will be played as the lone striker, and managers should keep an eye on this man, as he can be somewhat prolific when in good form. Stoke City assets appear seemingly lucrative, with a new manager, good fixtures coming up, and potential FPL gems in Shaqiri and Diouf, it’s a good bet to get Stoke City players into your team.
Bauer – Zouma – Shawcross – Pieters
Allen – Fletcher – Ndiaye
Shaqiri – Diouf – Choupo-Moting
