Mark Hughes has made three changes as Stoke City welcome West Bromwich Albion this afternoon.
Kurt Zouma is able to take his place in defence after shaking off a hamstring problem, Tom Edwards makes his home debut, while Maxim Choupo-Moting also starts.
Erik Pieters misses out with a hip injury, while Ramadan Sobhi and Mame Biram Diouf drop to the bench as the team try to relieve the pressure on Hughes's shoulders.
