Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross has been passed fit to face Leicester City this Saturday afternoon and so allow Mark Hughes to field an unchanged side to the one that beat Watford last time out.

The Stoke skipper, the star of last week’s victory, had been excused training all week as he battled to recover from a thigh problem, but was passed fit this Saturday morning.

On the Stoke City bench, Hughes brings back Bruno Martins Indi and Peter Crouch after both men missed the trip to Vicarage Road through injury. Tom Edwards (concussion) and Julien Ngoy drop out.

STOKE CITY

Butland; Zouma, Shawcross, Wimmer; Diouf, Fletcher, Allen; Pieters; Shaqiri, Ramadan; Choupo-Moting.

Subs: Grant; Berahino, Jese, Afellay, Martins Indi, Adam, Crouch.

LEICESTER CITY

Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs, Gray, Ndidi, Iborra, Mahrez, Okazaki, Vardy.

Subs: Hamer, Dragović, Amartey, King, Albrighton, Iheanacho, Slimani.
