Tottenham Hotspur V Stoke City

Jermain Defoe is quite rightly missing this game for a stupid and dangerous stamp so it looks like Crouch and Keane will start up front, if they win this one they will go into the Derby against Arsenal above them in the table which after the last few seasons will be a bit of a relief.

Stoke are doing great this season, in the top half of the table with 12 points having already played Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United, Like burnley i'm betting they would have taken that before the season started. I don't think they will have enough to beat Spurs at White hart lane though.

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-1 to Spurs

Stoke City's Robert Huth Handed Three-Match Ban For Violent Conduct
German facing suspension after striking Matthew Upson.

Stoke City defender Robert Huth has been handed a three-game ban by the FA after admitting a charge of violent conduct.

The charge related to an incident in the Potters weekend game with West Ham United when Huth struck Matthew Upson's head with his arm.

Although the referee didn't see the incident at the time, television evidence proved Huth's guilt and the German international admitted he was in the wrong in a club statement issues earlier this week.

Huth's previous disciplinary record is good. He has received only one red card in an eight-year Premier League career.

However, that counts for little now and he is out of Saturday's game with Tottenham Hotspur.

Stoke are now looking more comfortable in the Premier League and have had some quite good results. Questions are still there to be asked about the team on their travels.

This weekend they are facing a free-flowing and confident Spurs side who create plenty of chances. No points for Stoke.

Verdict: 2-0

Stoke 1-0 up

Stoke goal: The Potters have gone absolutely mental - they have pulled off an astounding hit-and-run at White Hart Lane. Ricardo Fuller does brilliantly to barge his way past Benoit Assou-Ekotto down the Stoke right and he gets into the area and pulls it back for Glenn Whelan, who magnificently arcs the ball past Heurelho Gomes and in-off the far post. Smashing finish.

any reason why Sorensen didn't start, that could have been a few nice points on the fantasy footie

1446: Late change to the Stoke team with keeper Thomas Sorensen taken ill and Steve Simonsen filling in between the sticks. The Potters fan sat behind me groans at the news.

depending where you look we had between 65-70% of the possession and took 20 shots with around 10 on target, you can't lose those types of games.....

In a fantastic pot/kettle moment, Stoke's Matt Etherington accused Spurs of going for the route one approach at the Lane on Saturday.

He's quoted in The Daily Mirror as saying: "Towards the end they were running out of ideas and were just lumping it towards Peter Crouch. In the last 20 minutes we weren't doing that, we were passing it about. We do have that side to our game."

Eyes a little left on the page, and The Mirror's match stats show that Spurs have 64% of the possession, and had a pass completion rate of 80%, next to Stoke's 70%.

Also, if Spurs did go for the aerial route, perhaps that was to avoid getting their ankles chopped. Three Stoke players were booked and they committed 19 fouls to Spurs' ten.
