Stoke boss Mark Hughes could recall Jonathan Walters to his starting XI for the trip to Chelsea after his return from suspension.

Stoke: Hughes to recall Potters forward

Walters was given his marching orders in the 1-1 draw with Norwich last month but is now back in the first-team squad and pushing for a start having been a near ever-present before his red card.

On-loan Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi is close to returning from a knee injury but is not yet back in contention.
Defender Robert Huth is out for the rest of the season with his knee injury but otherwise Hughes has a fully-fit squad to choose from against Jose Mourinho's title-chasers at Stamford Bridge.
