Diao impact delight for Pulis

Stoke boss Tony Pulis was delighted with Salif Diao's first appearance of the season in the 1-1 draw at Everton.

The Senegal star missed the start of the campaign with a back problem but built his fitness up in the reserves before lasting 77 minutes at the weekend.

And Pulis has hailed the former Liverpool midfielder as a model professional who is a "dream to work with".

The Potters chief also told the BBC: "He was brilliant, absolutely outstanding.

"He played very well for the reserves on Monday and he's trained very well, so I thought it was a good game to bring him back into.

"He's a dream to work with, he's a fantastic professional and I thought he was outstanding again.

"He was up against a really top Russian player in Bilyaletdinov and he's given him nothing."
