Stoke City boss Tony Pulis hailed Ryan Shawcross for keeping it together in his clash with Everton star Marouane Fellaini

Shawcross came in for praise after refusing to react to THREE separate attacks from Fellaini, during the 1-1 draw between Everton and Stoke.

“If Ryan has reacted and the referee had seen that, you would get punished,” said Pulis, whose team have not lost in seven games and remain unbeaten at home in the league this season.

“I don’t think our players react, they just get on with it. That is the way we talk about it as a group – you get on with it and hope the referee will deal with it.”
