  87. The Saints, meanwhile, keep faith in the same starting line-up as the side that beat Fulham last Saturday. There is one change on the bench, though, with Steven Davis coming into the matchday squad in place of Guilherme do Prado.

  88. In Stoke team news, manager Mark Hughes makes just one change from the side that faced United last weekend, with Glenn Whelan coming into the starting XI for Wilson Palacios, who is relegated to the bench.

  89. Following last weekend's 2-0 win over Fulham, Southampton currently sit in fifth place on 18 points and have the best defensive record in the league, having conceded just three goals in their opening nine games.

  90. Stoke put in good performance against Manchester United last weekend, but were undone by some poor defending late on to give The Red Devils a 3-2 win Old Trafford. But despite the Potters' 17th-placed standing in the table, Mark Hughes' side have lost just once at the Britannia this season.

  91. Good afternoon, I'm Steve Pass and I'll be taking you through all the action as Stoke City host Southampton at the Britannia Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 1500 BST.
