Stoke City Team of the Week

What a week for Stoke City! First, The Potters lost against QPR which made the Derby clash ever so crucial, watching Stoke City win against Derby was inspiring as the Potters resisted and thwarted every Derby attack to record a famous victory which shoots them right up the ladder and puts them ever closer to promotion.

Jack Butland

The Stoke City custodian has backed up his recent good form with another two amazing performances. Was unfortunate to concede two goals against QPR, but was outstanding in the win against Derby

Erik Pieters

Beats his fellow Dutchman Martins Indi, due to the fact that Martins Indi was the culprit for Angel Rangel’s second goal and because of the fact that Pieters dug in with the rest of the team when Stoke was down to ten men

Cuco Martina

Cuco Martina just pips Tom Edwards to a spot on the team, mainly due to the fact that Martina helped contribute to a Stoke City win

Ryan Shawcross

Has shown continual improvement in every match he plays.

Ashley Williams

His experience was invaluable in the tense win over Derby, is starting to show his Euro 2016 form.

Sam Clucas

The man that keeps on giving has looked impressive in a Stoke City shirt so far, looks to be a big part of whatever success Stoke have in the future

Tom Ince

Has been nothing but sensational for Stoke City, shown real composure and creativity on the ball.

James McClean

Had his best match in a Stoke City match against QPR, which merits a place in this team.

Saido Berahino

Gary Rowett simply has no choice but to start Berahino up front, has been a massive improvement to Benik Afobe.
