Stoke boss Tony Pulis has hinted at the possible inclusion of Ricardo Fuller in his squad to take on Rovers, but the striker is unlikely to be involved after dislocating his right shoulder in Sunday's 2-1 win over Newcastle.

Jermaine Pennant may return after missing out last weekend with a hamstring injury, but he may not be fit enough to play from the start.

Andy Wilkinson has a slight knee problem but should take his place at right-back in an unchanged back four.

David Dunn and Vince Grella will both be missing for Blackburn with hamstring problems.

Jason Roberts returns to the squad and could make his first appearance of the season from the bench.

Keith Andrews has also recovered from injury for the visit to the Britannia Stadium.

Stoke (from): Sorensen, Huth, Faye, Collins, Shawcross, Delap, Etherington, Pennant, Whelan, Whitehead, Walters, Fuller, Tuncay, Jones, Gudjohnsen, Wilkinson, Higginbotham, Wilson, Begovic, Diao.

Blackburn (from): Robinson, Nelsen, Samba, Salgado, Jones, Givet, Olsson, Nzonzi, Andrews, Pedersen, Emerton, EH Diouf, MB Diouf, Roberts, Kalinic, Benjani, Bunn, Chimbonda, Hoilett, Linganzi.

Alexis Sanchez: Really Not THAT Good

The backlash has begun: Why are Barca letting him go if he's any good? We have mails on Alexis Sanchez, Luis Suarez, the World Cup and the wonder of F365...

Oh and honey, put the kettle on. We have more World Cup mails but it's mostly an orgasmic explosion at the signing of Alexis Sanchez. Could this be Arsenal's year?
