​Stoke without Martins-Indi for crucial Crystal Palace clash

Stoke City will have to make do without the services of defender Bruno Martins Indi for their crucial game against Crystal Palace this Saturday.

Martins Indi suffered a groin strain while playing for his club during their 0-0 draw against Liverpool last weekend.

The Potters will also be without the services of Maxim Choupo-Moting, who is getting back to fitness, and Kostas Stafylidis, who has a rib injury.

Potters manager Paul Lambert said: "Bruno [Martins Indi] is struggling and he is out. We'll have to see if Bruno can make the Swansea game.

"Glen [Johnson] has trained and we will see how he is, but other than that it's the same group as Anfield.

"Max Choupo-Moting has started light training. Stafylidis's ribs are still a bit of a concern but doing better."
