Stoke City have no new injury worries ahead of Saturday's match.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is expected to be fit after taking a knock to his ankle in the loss to Liverpool in midweek.

Swansea City have Tammy Abraham available again after the on-loan striker was ineligible to face parent club Chelsea in Matchweek 14.

Kyle Bartley (knee) and Federico Fernandez (personal) are still out.

What the managers say

Mark Hughes: "They have good attacking threats and they have a bit of pace about them too, so it is difficult to see why they are struggling."
