Robert Huth is set to return to the Stoke side having completed a three-match suspension following his sending-off against Sunderland last month.

Tony Pulis will check on the condition of midfielder Glenn Whelan, who picked up a knock on international duty with the Republic of Ireland, ahead of kick-off.

Midfielder Jonny Howson could make his Norwich debut after finally returning to fitness from a knee injury.

Striker James Vaughan has picked up a hamstring problem which will delay his return from knee surgery, while full-back Marc Tierney (knee) is also out.

Centre-back Daniel Ayala (hamstring) trained this week, but may not be rushed straight into action. England under-21 defender Ryan Bennett has now joined up with his new club following a loan spell back at Peterborough.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Upson, Collins, Shotton, Shawcross, Wilkinson, Wilson, Woodgate, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Diao, Pennant, Delap, Arismendi, Palacios, Jones, Fuller, Jerome, Crouch, Walters.

Norwich (from): Ruddy, Naughton, Ward, Whitbread, Drury, Pilkington, Fox, Johnson, E Bennett, Hoolahan, Holt, Steer, Crofts, Barnett, Morison, Surman, Wilbraham, Jackson, R Bennett, Ayala, Howson.
