This Saturday Mark Hughes' exciting Stoke side welcome a Crystal Palace side high in confidence and flying high in the league. While Stoke sit five places below Palace, there's only three points between the sides so a win for Stoke could see them go as high as sixth if they win convincingly and results go their way. Most will see this clash as a attack vs attack but does that paint the whole picture? Both sides have exceptional defensive records this season and have actually struggled to put the ball in the net, despite the great attacking options available. While that may be a cause for concern for most, both sides could equally be said to be still finding their feet without needing to look over their shoulders at the relegation battle below them Alan Pardew and Mark Hughes are the current highest placed British managers in English football and they will both be looking to cement their credentials as managers of top ten Premier League sides. Who will win? When you look at the array of attacking talent on the pitch it would be foolish not to predict goals goals goals but one look at the stats tells a different story. It'll probably be 0-0. Or 4-4.
