TONY PULIS made one change to his starting eleven for Saturday's live televised Barclays Premier encounter against Everton . . . with defender Robert Huth returning to the side following his three game ban.
The German international returned to the side to partner skipper Ryan Shawcross at the heart of the backline, coming in at the expense of the injured Matthew Etherington.
The rest of the side was as you were against West Bromwich Albion two weeks ago, with Asmir Begovic resuming his duties in goal, ushering a back four that comprised of Geoff Cameron, Huth, Shawcross and Marc Wilson.
The midfield quartet was made up of Ryan Shotton, on the right, and Jonathan Walters on the left and Steven Nzonzi and Glenn Whelan the two who occupied the central spots.
England international Peter Crouch partnered Cameron Jerome up front, as the Potters looked to record a second successive victory against the Toffees at Goodison Park.
Stoke City: Begovic; Cameron, Huth, Shawcross (c), Wilson; Shotton, Nzonzi, Whelan, Walters; Jerome, Crouch. Subs: Sorensen, Wilkinson, Adam, Whitehead, Kightly, Jones, Owen.
