300 // Ryan Shawcross' appearance at Norwich City was his 300th in senior club football. They are made up of two for Manchester United, 22 on loan at Royal Antwerp and 276 in the red and white of Stoke City.
SEVENTH HEAVEN // Stoke are a win away from equalling last season's record of seven league victories at the Britannia Stadium.
FORTRESS BRITANNIA // The Potters have lost just one of the last 11 Premier League games on home soil (W5 D5 L1).
ONE TO GO // The Hammers have scored 799 goals in Premier League history.
DECEPTIVE // Stoke and West Ham are the two sides with the fewest headed goals this season (two apiece).
SHUT OUTS // Sam Allardyce's side have the joint-most clean sheets in the league this season with 13.
MISSING // The Potters will be without both Charlie Adam and Jonathan Walters for only the second time since both players have been at the Club. Neither featured from the bench in the Capital One Cup win over Birmingham City.
QUIET // Asmir Begovic didn't have a single attempt to save during the Potters' 1-0 win at Upton Park earlier in the season.
DOUBLE DELIGHT // A win on Saturday would make it a first double of the season for Stoke, the last since beating QPR 1-0 at home and 2-0 away last season.
