Stoke will be without midfielder Steven Nzonzi for the visit of Manchester United on Saturday.
Nzonzi was sent off for two bookable offences at Sunderland in midweek and serves a one-game suspension.
Home debuts are possible for forwards Peter Odemwingie and John Guidetti, with the latter used sparingly since arriving from Manchester City on loan.
David Moyes must decide whether to include Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney for Manchester United's visit to Stoke.
The pair both made their comebacks from thigh and groin problems respectively in Tuesday's win over Cardiff, but Moyes will not want to risk either man if not 100 per cent.
Marouane Fellaini is nearing full fitness after wrist surgery, while Nemanja Vidic serves the final game of a three-match suspension.
Stoke squad: Begovic, Sorensen, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters, Cameron, Muniesa, Shotton, Whelan, Adam, Palacios, Ireland, Assaidi, Arnautovic, Walters, Crouch, Guidetti, Odemwingie.
Man United squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Jones, Evra, Buttner, Valencia, Fellaini, Fletcher, Giggs, Cleverley, Young, Kagawa, Januzaj, Mata, Rooney, Hernandez, Welbeck, Van Persie.
