Cuco Martina showed what he could for Stoke City, after having the right-back spot taken from him by Tom Edwards, was good offensively and solid in defence.

The captain was determined to get the win and he put his body on the line mutiple lines for the Stoke City cause, truly inspiring.

Ashley  Williams-8

When the going gets tough, you need a guy like Williams to back you up, was absolutley temoundous for Stoke City.

Tom Ince-8.5

Once again was at the forefront of the action, he took his goal with the same composure we’ve come to associate with him.

Sam Clucas-9.5

Man of the match in my opinion, scored one and assited one, what more can you ask from a player. Oh, he also generally chipped in eveywhere. Just brilliant.

Saido Berahino-8

Gary Rowett is starting to see that Berahino is most effective as the lone forward, contributed to both goals.
