Picking the Best Potential Stoke Lineup to Face Brighton on Saturday

​Stoke take on ​Brighton in the ​Premier League on Saturday and both teams will be looking for three points to move themselves away from the relegation zone. 


Here's how the Potters could lineup against the Seagulls.

Goalkeeper

​This defence has registered 2 clean sheets in their last 3 Premier League games. 


Moritz Bauer signed for ​Stoke during the January transfer window and has started all four games at right-back since his arrival from Rubin Kazan. 


Captain Ryan Shawcross is in his 10th season with the Potters and will partner ​Chelsea loanee Kurt Zouma in the middle of the defence, while it will be Erik Pieters' job to keep the right wing quiet. 

Midfield

  • Ndaiye

  • Cameron

  • Shaqiri

  • Allen

  • Choupo-Moting

​With regular starter Darren Fletcher a major doubt for this game, Geoff Cameron could take his place in the center of midfield, just like he did at ​Bournmouth last week. 


Stoke confirmed the signing of Badou Ndiaye on deadline day and he made his debut against Bournemouth last week. He is likely to partner Cameron in the middle of the park. 


Shaqiri and Choupo-Moting will look to provide width for Paul Lambert's men, while Joe Allen will do his best to provide support for the lone striker. 


Forwards

  • Diouf
    Diouf18

Mame Biram Diouf has five Premier League goals so far this season. 


He didn't start against Bournemouth last week but is one option up front for Paul Lambert and is the striker with the best goals return for Stoke so far this season. 


Other options up front include Peter Crouch and Saido Berahino​.
