Team News: Eagles Unchanged For Fourth Game In A Row

5 May 2018

For the fourth game in succession, Roy Hodgson has named an unchanged side for today's trip to Stoke City.

Having seen his team gain eight points from a possible 12 against Brighton, Watford and Leicester City, Hodgson has stuck with the same starting XI from those games, which is to be expected after breaking their Premier League record victory with a 5-0 thrashing of the Foxes a week ago.

There is one alteration on the bench though, with Diego Cavalieri replacing Julian Speroni as the backup goalkeeper.

Needing to secure a victory to keep his side's survival chances intact, Paul Lambert has been forced into once change to the Potters team that secured a goalless draw against Liverpool seven days ago, with Glen Johnson coming in for injury victim Bruno Martins Indi.
