Despite Stoke conceding eight goals against Newcastle and Tottenham, Hughes will resist giving Butland his league debut against Everton today.
Hughes said: "I'll probably give Jack a game against Leicester in the FA Cup at the weekend.
"It's important I have a look at him. I would like to see him first hand in the cup game.
"I've been lucky with the keepers I have. Asmir is outstanding, but Thomas has come in and done a good job.
"The World Cup does not come into my thinking. My thinking is purely about Jack's development and his progress here."
