Stoke welcome newly promoted AFC Bournemouth to the Britannia Stadium tomorrow, still in search of their first league victory of the season.

The Potters have struggled so far this season, only picking up three points so far, but will be hoping to double their tally tomorrow with three extra points.

Mark Hughes still won’t be able to call upon injured captain Ryan Shawcross still as the central defender continues to recover from back surgery, but the 27-year-old could be set to play a part in reserve team football next month.

Whilst fellow central defender Marc Wilson is a doubt after picking up a calf strain.

He could be able to call upon fit again striker Mame Biram Diouf, and midfielders Charlie Adam and Ibrahim Afellay after the pair have both served their suspensions.

Vital Stoke predicted starting eleven:

Butland

Johnson Muniesa Cameron Pieters

Whelan van Ginkel

Shaqiri Bojan Arnautovic

Walters
