Shawcross has played the whole 90 minutes of all but one of Stokeâ€™s 18 Âfixtures so far â€“ the only two Premier League outfield Âplayers who have spent more time on the pitch this season are Fulhamâ€™s Brede ÂHangeland and Danny ÂMurphy.
Pulis said: â€śRyan is just a fantastic kid and has been playing so well you wouldnâ€™t want to leave him out.
â€śEverybody else has been in and out, but we have used him and he doesnâ€™t want a rest. He just wants to play and play. The good thing is heâ€™s a young kid â€“ and in any case heâ€™s playing in an easy position. Centre halves donâ€™t do as much running!â€ť
