I'm a big fan of Steve Bruce, he did wonders with Wigan last year and found some gems who have moved on to bigger clubs , He appears to be doing the same for Sunderland, he has Bent motivated and firing.

Stoke were a lot of peoples tip for relegation last season and ended up comfortably staying up with a philosophy buiult on Hard work which i think will keep them up this season too however i think Sunderland will have too uch for Stoke even at home.

Mystic Jarv predicts 0-2 to Sunderland

Here are two managers who certainly know the ropes in the Premier League - Stoke's Tony Pulis and Sunderland's Steve Bruce.

Sunderland didn't appear in the first half against Blackburn, then came out and won the points. They would have lost games like that last year.

Verdict: 1-1

Stoke's new signing Robert Huth will go straight into the squad for Saturday's visit of Sunderland.

Huth could even start in central defence if Ryan Shawcross, who has been struggling with his latest bout of growing pains, fails a late fitness check.

James Beattie should be fit to return in attack after recovering from the knee injury which forced his early withdrawal at Birmingham last Saturday.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis is certain to revert to his full strength team after making 11 changes for Tuesday's Carling Cup victory at Leyton Orient.

Sunderland defender Danny Collins is not expected to be included in the squad as the Potters attempt to sign him.

But keeper Craig Gordon could retain his place in the starting line-up after returning from knee surgery in Monday night's 4-1 Carling Cup win at Norwich with Marton Fulop struggling with a heel problem.

Fraizer Campbell was left battered and bruised by his collision with Canaries' keeper Ben Alnwick, but is expected to be fit, while midfielder Andy Reid, who scored twice, was one of several men to impress Steve Bruce after he rested nine of his key men.

Teams:

Stoke (from): Sorensen, Wilkinson, Shawcross, Abdoulaye Faye, Higginbotham, Lawrence, Whitehead, Delap, Whelan, Etherington, Beattie, Fuller, Huth, Simonsen, Kitson, Cresswell, Pugh, Griffin, Cort, Amdy Faye.

Sunderland (from): Fulop, Gordon, Carson, Bardsley, Ferdinand, Nosworthy, Da Silva, McCartney, Cana, Cattermole, Richardson, Reid, Malbranque, Leadbitter, Henderson, Tainio, Edwards, Bent, Jones, Campbell, Healy

Stoke goal: Stoke swing in a corner from the right that is cleared as far as Danny Higginbotham, who heads it back into the box and Dave Kitson smashes in from eight yards. He cannot stop scoring, the ginger hitman.

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis expects Dave Kitson to find the net regularly after scoring his first Premier League goal for the Potters on Saturday.

After failing to find the net in 13 months with Stoke, the £5.5m 29-year-old scored his second goal in the space of three days to defeat Sunderland 1-0.

"Dave's had a massive weight on him - being the record signing and not scoring," Pulis told BBC Radio Stoke.

"Fingers crossed, he'll go on and get a few goals."

"In the last couple of games he's been chipping the weight off his shoulders."

"The supporters have been brilliant to him and I've never known anything like it.

"They've never got on his back and they've always wanted him to come good."

Stoke paid Reading a club record fee for Kitson in June

New boys Robert Huth and Tuncay, signed for a combined £10m from Middlesbrough on Friday, made their Stoke debuts as substitutes against the Black Cats.

I think Robert Huth could go on to become a top, top defender

Stoke boss Tony Pulis

And while Pulis is delighted to get them both on board, he is hopeful that they will not be the last additions to his squad before the transfer deadline on Tuesday.

"Unfortunately we've had to wait until the last minute again, but we've done the deals and they're fantastic deals.

"We've got the captain of Turkey playing here, and I think Robert Huth could go on to become a top, top defender.

"I'm hoping add two or three more in all areas of the pitch, and hopefully they'll drop for us."
