Stoke City the latest gossip

Come on Stoke

 

Premier League: Southampton v Stoke team news

Ronald Koeman can select the same squad that thumped Sunderland 8-0, while Stoke are without Glenn Whelan at St Mary's.

Southampton have no new injury concerns ahead of three games in eight days.

Koeman will make precious few changes for Wednesday's immediate Capital One Cup rematch with Stoke, ahead of next weekend's away league trip to Hull.

Stoke midfielder Whelan is out and full-back Phil Bardsley is doubtful.

Whelan fractured a leg during the Republic of Ireland's recent Euro 2016 qualifier against Germany and is sidelined for up to six weeks, whilst Bardsley will undergo a late fitness test for a back problem.

Centre-back Rob Huth and midfielder Marco Arnautovic, who both missed last weekend's 2-1 home win over Swansea through injury, come back into contention.
