In doing so, the Potters ended a losing run of four Premier League matches and Tony Pulis will be eyeing another three valuable points ahead of trips to Stamford Bridge and Anfield before hosting Manchester City at the Brit.
Stoke are a best price 10/11 (William Hill £25 free bet) which might not be to everyone’s tastes considering that they have only won five of their thirteen games at the Britannia during this campaign, although perhaps their physical prowess could unsettle a Canaries team sitting above them in the table right now.
Norwich have been quietly going about their business since August and a 35-point haul means that Paul Lambert can start looking ahead to next season in the top flight, with 14 points separating them from the bottom three.
The east Anglian side were unlucky to lose to Manchester United last Sunday and have avoided defeat in eight of their thirteen away matches which means that 7/2 (Stan James) about the away win in this match could be an attractive price.
Grant Holt is the talk of the town following his spectacular strike against the Red Devils and he is not someone that the Potters defence will be able to outmuscle. The forward is an 8/1 chance to score the first goal and bet365 offer attractive odds of 13/5 that this game ends in a draw.
