Stoke City finished last season in the 14th spot of the Sky Bet Championship table with 60 points.

Managed by Michael O’Neill, the Potters have taken 10 points from their opening five games thanks to wins against Reading, Swansea City and Nottingham Forest.

They’ve also progressed to the Third Round of the Carabao Cup following wins over Fleetwood Town and Doncaster Rover.

ONES TO WATCH

Harry Souttar

Souttar joined Stoke City from Dundee United in September 2016. The 22-year-old had loan spells at Ross County and Fleetwood Town, before making his league debut for the Potters in a 1-0 win away to Preston North End in September 2020. His first full season with Stoke saw Souttar make 38 appearances, bagging one goal and three assists in the process. The international break saw the defender earn his sixth cap for Australia in their 3-0 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying win over China.

Nick Powell

The forward signed for the Potters from Wigan Athletic in June 2019. The 27-year-old was Stoke’s top goalscorer for the 2020/21 season with 12 goals. His first goal was, unfortunately, against Town! He also got three assists in his 38 appearances and was named the Club’s Player of the Year with almost 60% of the votes. Powell missed Stoke’s last three games with a thigh injury, but it’s expected he’ll be back on Saturday.

Tommy Smith

A familiar face for Town fans, Smith joined Stoke from the Terriers ahead of the 2019/20 season. Last season saw the right back make 35 appearances, scoring two goals and securing three assists in the process. The 29-year-old has had a flying start to the current campaign with three assists in five starts, two of which were in the Potters’ opening game of the season against Reading.
