PREDICTION
Stoke's leaky defence reared its ugly head once again conceding five against Chelsea and that continues to be an issue for them. Newcastle will aim to keep things tight and grab a goal or two on the counter or from set pieces and they should be able to capitalise so expect both teams to score.

MEMORABLE MEETING
March 2011 pitted the two teams together at what was then called the Britannia Stadium and it was a very memorable performance for Tony Pulis’ Stoke side. They made light work of the travelling Newcastle side and the Magpies would return to Tyneside empty handed having been dealt a heavy 4-0 defeat.
