Stoke midfielder Joe Allen counting on big 2018

Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen is counting on a big 2018.

Having followed up a crucial home win over West Brom with a battling point at Huddersfield on Boxing Day, Allen insists there is a more upbeat mood around the Stoke camp prior to their final fixture of 2017 at Chelsea.

"We want to end the year on a great note and take that into next year - we are hopeful we can be that much better," the Welshman said.

"The feeling is that we have turned a little bit of a corner and let's take that into next year."

He added: "It is not an easy game going to Stamford Bridge, but we will throw everything at it because we want to keep this two-game unbeaten run going."
