Stoke to hold their own against shot-shy Saints
The depleted Potters lost 4-0 at home to Chelsea last Saturday but did plenty of attacking and were harshly treated by the final score.
Stoke’s powers of resistance should be enhanced with Kurt Zouma coming back into the side and they are capable of matching Southampton, who play plenty of good football but have failed to score in five of seven matches this season.

Kurt Zouma returns after being ineligible to face Chelsea but Bruno Martins Indi (groin) joins Ryan Shawcross (back) on the sidelines and Geoff Cameron and Kevin Wimmer (both hamstring) are injury doubts.
Matt Targett is battling to shake off an ankle problem but no other injuries are reported.
Southampton have failed to score in 10 of their last 13 matches.
