Surprisingly, Albion have managed just 20 shots on target so far this season, five fewer than the hosts, but the Baggies have been much more clinical - having scored seven goals, while the Potters have converted less than six per cent of their efforts – a divisional low.

However, Stoke have kept a clean sheet in six of their previous eight Premier League games against Albion and the visitors are 13/8 not to score, while the hosts to win to nil is a 5/2 chance.

Meanwhile, Marko Arnautovic and Kenwyne Jones are considered Stoke’s biggest goal threat, while Stephane Sessegnon is 8/1 to bag for the Baggies.

Youngster Saido Berahino is 9/1 to score the first goal of the game and is 100/1 to fire a hat-trick. 

While Markus Rosenberg is 9/2 to score at any point during the game.

Shane Long is 28/1 to grab a goal in either half of the game. 

Stoke must overcome their struggle for goals if they’re to justify their tag as favourites against an Albion side that are unbeaten in four Barclays Premier League games.

The Potters have failed to score in three of their last four Premier League fixtures, while their overall haul of just four in their opening seven is a club low.

City have failed to score in three of their last four Premier League games, while their overall haul of just four in their opening seven is a club low at this stage of any of their six seasons in the division.

Mark Hughes and Steve Clarke have met competitively just once before, with the latter coming out on top during Hughes’ QPR spell, though the former is looking for his 100th Premier League win as a manager.
