PREDICTION
Stoke suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Tottenham last weekend as their defensive frailties were exposed once again. They travel to Turf Moor and go up against a Burnley side whose form has been slightly indifferent as of late but with home advantage behind them they should go on to earn successive league wins.

MEMORABLE MEETING
20 years ago these two sides were paired together in the League Cup second round and the first leg of the tie was played at Turf Moor. Stoke all but secured their progression in the competition thanks to a 4-0 away win, with both Peter Thorne and Graham Kavanagh each scoring twice.
