Potential Stoke City Lineup to Face West Ham in Saturday's Premier League Clash

​Mark Hughes has several injury concerns ahead of the trip to West Ham and will have to make at least one change to his side. Stoke have turned their fortunes around in recent weeks having won three consecutive matches, so they will be desperate to carry that form into the upcoming international break. 


Here is how Stoke may potentially lineup against the Hammers.

Goalkeeper

​Lee Grant will continue in goal, with first choice Jack Butland still several weeks away from returning. 

Defence

​Stoke's back four could remain unchanged with Glen Johnson still sidelined through injury. 


Loan signing Bruno Martins Indi is beginning to develop a solid partnership with Ryan Shawcross in central defence, so the Potters will hope to pile on the misery for West Ham and keep what would be their third clean sheet of the season. 

Midfield

  • Whelan

  • Shaqiri

  • Sobhi

​Joe Allen, Glenn Whelan and Charlie Adam should all retain their roles in midfield but Xherdan Shaqiri is a major doubt for the match at the London Stadium, having suffered an injury during the first half against Swansea. 


Marko Arnautovic is suspended, so Ramadan Sobhi is the favourite to replace the Austrian having impressed manager Mark Hughes in last week's win over the Swans.

Forwards

  • Bony

​Record signing Wilfried Bony is highly likely to continue up front on his own having finally scored his first goals for the club in last Monday's 3-1 victory over Swansea. 


The former Manchester City striker will be desperate to build on his brace and will be confident of adding to his tally against what has been a suspicious looking Hammers defence this season.
