Stoke condemned Queen`s Park Rangers to another away day defeat as the Potters ran out 3-1 victors at the Britannia Stadium at the weekend.

A number of Potters players shone in the game but one performance in particular impressed BBC pundit Garth Crooks enough to force their way into his team of the weekend.

Jonathan Walters

“I don’t think I’ve seen a team like QPR work so hard to score a goal to get back into a match and then concede so easily at the other end. Is it any wonder manager Harry Redknapp looks so distressed? The happy recipient of such poor defending by the Hoops this time was Stoke City’s Jonathan Walters, who accepted the gifts graciously. The 31-year-old left the Britannia Stadium with the match ball after hitting a hat-trick.Terrific performance by the Republic of Ireland striker.”

Did you know? Jonathan Walters is the first Premier League player to score a perfect hat-trick (left foot, right foot, head) since 19 May 2013
