Due to the fact that Stoke City has a predominantly healthy team, Alex Neil, the club’s manager, has little to worry about in terms of availability and his primary concern is with the health of his players. The Cruciate Ligament Rupture will prevent Harry Souttar from competing.
The only health concern that the Luton Town manager, Nathan Jones, has to deal with in an otherwise available squad is one player’s lack of match fitness. Due to a knee injury, James Shea won’t be participating in today’s game.
