Stoke - Swansea Preview: Pulis looking to halt 11-match winless streak

The Potters are yet to taste victory this season after two draws and a loss, whilst Michael Laudrup’s Swans will be hoping to bounce back after defeat to Everton

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

STOKE CITY

Begovic
Cameron, Huth, Shawcross, Wilson
Whelan, Nzonzi
Kightly, Adam, Walters
Crouch
SWANSEA CITY

Vorm
Rangel, Chico, A Williams, Davies

Britton, Ki
De Guzman, Michu, Routledge
Graham

Stoke could name an unchanged side from the one that lost to Chelsea last weekend with only Matthew Etherington a possible inclusion in the starting line-up.

There are no new injury worries for the home team and Jamie Ness (groin) could be in contention for a place on the bench if he recovers in time.

For the visitors, Chico is expected come back into the side after his suspension although Garry Monk could start after his League Cup heroics in midweek.

Summer signing Pablo Hernandez picked up a knock (knee) and Nathan Dyer is suspended, so midfielder Jonathan De Guzman could be forced to play out wide.
