NorwichCityOK: Whatever the result it gives me hope that Norwich are scoring every game!

lfcway: Messi might not be able to do it on a wet windy night at Stoke, but looks like Shaqiri will. Stoke have signed a top player.

Peter, Portadown: My mate had Courtois first week and Adrian second week in his fantasy team - both sent off. He has Butland this week... bad omen for Stoke?

Kevin Kilbane

BBC Radio 5 live

"For Norwich's first game against Palace, it was almost as if they'd said: 'We are back in the Premier League now, let's be a bit more defensive'. But they've come back at Stoke hard now and will create chances with the players they've got. They went at teams last season - that's how they got promoted."

Final Score
