Stoke Vs Watford
James Chester is back from a one-match suspension, but Ryan Shawcross only misses out after returning to training after testing positive for Covid and Adam Davies with a slight hamstring injury. New signing Alfie Doughty (full back) remains out for a while.
They Can Be A Force’
Watford are under new boss Cisco Munoz and arrive at the Potteries having won three of their last four league games – all three of which have come without conceding a goal.

Mind: I think it’s fine. It was a sore spot, but I think he should be fine – although I can’t assess it in any detail medically at this time.
Mind: I’m not sure I agree with this award. I think our biggest problem tonight was—although I thought we handled him well—Mr. The quality he showed was the difference and was decisive in tonight’s game.
Stoke City V Watford: Cameron Looking To Build On Defensive Platform
Troy Deeney is a very experienced player at this level and a very good player at this level.
I think tonight was more about that five minute spell when Sar showed his true qualities. Not getting much out of the game was the difference between us.
Man: I thought he was really good. You can see his ability on the ball directly. He can handle the ball very well. I thought he linked up really well with Nathan Collins and Joe Allen on that side.
It’s two very young players who handled it very well against two very good players in that side. That was a good start from Jack.
Dropping A Masterclass!’
He has shown great quality since coming on in three matches and I think he can add something for us.
Mann: I thought he did really well there. We know Nick can play there and we thought he would cause problems for the opposition as he also has the ability to drop. I thought his all-around game was great.
He is a player with great versatility and great ability and it would be good for Fletcher to get a goal and more playing time.
I think the formation we play with Powell and Fletcher together will threaten us a little bit more down the field.

Mind: We didn’t. We had some good balls into the box in the first half but we couldn’t create those clear-cut chances.
Then Joe’s effort. I think if it’s anywhere else in the target, it goes in. The goalkeeper also made a good reaction.
A combination of good defending from Watford and perhaps our wrong selections, not having the right attacking play in the box at the right time, we were unable to take advantage of our possession and dominance of the game.
When you play against a team like Watford with their quality you only need a moment and Sarr was dominant in two key moments of the game.

Michael O’Neill: We’re very disappointed that we didn’t take anything away from the game. We were the dominant team going into penalties, there’s no doubt about that.
Then there are the five minutes that really turn the game around. First the penalty and then the second goal, which we could have defended better, but it was a great finish. There’s a bit of luck, the ball goes over Joe’s hand, but it’s a great finish from Sarr.
I thought we showed good character to get a goal back and obviously we tried to get level but we just couldn’t.

Stoke Vs Watford
Matondo runs in with the ball and finds Powell, who you want to find him, 20 yards out. But Powell’s shot is terrible. He beats himself up.
There are those who blow the whistle like referees in the Watford camp and deserve to be arrested and jailed.
It’s a good move and a great pass from Joe Allen to run Fletcher in for six yards.
Vox for Clarke, who did well in his first senior start since February 2019.

Nathan Collins and Tom Cleverley collide. Cleverley’s boot was up, Collins caught him with his spikes as he landed. Collins booked.
Fletcher was unlucky to see an offside flag as he headed on a ball from Michael. He fired at Bachmann.
The way Watford whine about everything is like fingernails scratching at a chalkboard. They have some incredible players.
Allen’s free-kick is dangerous and Clarke grabs the clearance to curl in a Watford ranger. Bachmann saves.
