The Potters will face a resurgent Leicester side at Bet 365 Stadium in an early kick-off on Saturday.
After back-to-back defeats in the league, Stoke got back to winning ways with a 1-0 result at Watford last weekend, and find themselves in the 14th spot on the table. Veteran midfielder Darren Fletcher scored a sweet volley to ease pressure on his manager, and before that, Mame Diouf had scored three goals in three appearances for Mark Hughes’ side.
The Foxes are placed 11th on the table, but they are only a point better than their opponents. However, they are unbeaten in their last four league outings, and currently, on a three-game winning run in all competitions.
Last weekend, the visitors claimed a comfortable 2-0 home win over Everton in what was their first game under new manager Claude Puel. Jamie Vardy was once again on target, and with six league goals, he is Foxes’ top-scorer this season.
Last season, the corresponding fixture ended in a 2-2 draw, and the reverse fixture ended in a 2-0 win for the Foxes.
