The 33-year-old has made just six appearances since joining the Potters in September, scoring once, but did notch his 150th Premier League goal - and first in 15 months - in the loss to Swansea City on January 19.

|18/1||Michael Owen is 18/1 with Bet35 to score anytime in a 2-1 win for Stoke against Wigan
"People have questioned me for the last six years, if I'm honest," Owen is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.
"You always get questioned when you're not playing, especially when you've played to the level I have in my career. I'm really hungry, though, but it's difficult to express.
"The season hasn't gone the way I wanted it to because I've hardly played, hardly scored and haven't been involved in the season at all yet. Hopefully the second half of the season can be a lot better for me.
"When I came here, I wanted to get in the team. That hasn't changed and I hope I can play a big part here for Stoke."
