Stoke hosts Crystal Palace at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League, with both sides looking to push-up the table.
Stoke drew 0-0 at West Ham last time out, but the Potters did miss some good opportunities to take maximum points from the game. Potters boss Mark Hughes will be happy with his defence, but will be concerned by the lack of goals in his team.
The Potters have kept five clean sheets in their last six Premier League games. However they have also failed to score in three of the games in that period. The Potters are currently eleventh position in Premier League table, but are just three points behind fifth-place Spurs.
Crystal Palace has been on a decent run of form in the top-flight and last time out recorded a 1-0 home win against Southampton with French midfielder Yohan Cabaye scoring the only goal of the game.
The Eagles have now taken four points from games with Everton and Southampton. Those two decent results mean that Alan Pardew’s men are well position to mount a challenge for a top six spot, or even the top four.
The Londoners are currently sixth in the table, but are just three points behind fourth-place Manchester United.

Facts And Figures

There have been just four Premier League meetings between these teams, with Crystal Palace recording two wins, Stoke winning once and the other game resulting in a draw.
The record at the Britannia Stadium is even, as both wins have claimed a win apiece.
Palace have won two out of the last three Premier League meetings, including last time these two teams met at the Britannia in March.
Stoke are the joint-lowest scorers in the Premier League alongside bottom club Villa, having scored just 13 top-flight goals this season.
A solid defence and lack of goals has contributed to their being under 2.5 goals scored in the Potters last nine top-flight games.

Team Selection & News

For the home side veteran ‘keeper Shay Given and striker Peter Crouch have been ruled out through injury. Defender Geoff Cameron is a doubt as are wingers Xherdan Shaqiri and Peter Odemwingie, although the former is likely to be fit to feature.
The Eagles are still without winger Bakary Sako, as the former-Wolves has a hamstring injury. The Eagles also still have fitness doubts over captain Mile Jedinak and striker Dwight Gayle. Alan Pardew could pick an unchanged team from last time out.

Possible Stoke City team line-up: Butland, Johnson, Shawcross, Wollscheid, Pieters, Adam, Whelan, Arnautovic, Afellay, Shaqiri, Bojan

Possible Crystal Palace line-up: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare, McArthur, Cabaye, Zaha, Puncheon, Bolasie, Wickham

Stoke v Crystal Palace Match Prediction

Stoke have one of the tightest defences in the Premier League, but their difficulty in scoring goals has led to the Potters failing to pick-up as many points as they should have in recent months.
Crystal Palace has a very good away record and the Eagles are set-up perfectly to hit teams on the counter. I believe that Pardew’s side may just have enough to claim a win in a tight clash.
