The Potters were in danger of relegation but wins against QPR and Norwich in recent weeks combined with Wigan Athletic's 3-2 defeat to Swansea City last week has secured Tony Pulis' side top flight status for next season. Stoke now sit 11th in the league table, six points clear of 18th placed Wigan.

Spurs, on the other hand, are looking to clinch a place in next season's Champions League, but it now seems a tough ask for Andre Villas-Boas and his men, as they have to depend on archrivals Arsenal to drop points, to break into the top four. Tottenham are currently one point behind the Gunners, who also have a superior goal difference.

Stoke have been in a poor run of form and have won just one of their last five matches at the Britannia. However, the Potters are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games against Tottenham, The reverse fixture at White Hart Lane in December ended in a stalemate.
