Brian McDermott has brought some really quality to the club over the summer, none more than Pavel Pogrebnyak – who showed some great form for Fulham last season, scoring six goals in twelve appearances.

The Russian does look to be a great bit of business from McDermott, along with Chris Gunter and Adrian Mariappa.

As for Stoke, they find themselves in the top flight yet again this year, which is a fantastic achievement.

Despite establishing themselves in the Premier League for four seasons now, survival is still the key for this campaign.

Michael Kightly has joined the Potters from Wolverhampton Wanderers and if he can stay fit is likely to be a superb signing for them as he can provide top quality service for the front men.

Peter Crouch will be the man who will be leading the line for Stoke this season and he will be looking to get on the score-sheet straight away to build on the 10 goals he scored last season.

Tony Pulis’ men know that these are the games they need to take points from, especially as they play both Arsenal and Manchester City in the opening four matches.

This encounter all gets underway from 3pm on Saturday.
