Jack Butland got a third consecutive start and made it two clean sheets in a row and in his three matches overall as Stoke City picked up a nil-nil draw at Turf Moor.
Butland is certainly making a solid case that Stoke City can cash in on Asmir Begovic and still feel good about their goalkeeping situation next season. Butland made a number of saves from Danny Ings shots as well as a strong volley from Danny Jones. The draw saw Stoke City achieve their highest ever point total in the Premier League with another week still to play. Things are looking pretty solid at the Britannia heading into the summer.

Asmir Begovic is back in contention after two weeks out injured and Mark Hughes has been vague about his intentions in goal for Week 37.

All other things being equal, you'd expect Asmir Begovic to return to his starting job now that he's healthy and available again. Two things confound the notion that this is what will certainly happen. First, it's the end of the season and Stoke City don't really have anything significant to play for. Second, Begovic may be headed elsewhere this summer and understanding what they have in Butland may be more important than having the better, more experienced goalkeeper in net on Saturday. If you have to decide on your fantasy squad before line-ups are announced then it's probably best to avoid either Stoke City keeper even with goal-shy Burnley the opposition.

Jack Butland didn't have a great outing in his first start last weekend but he and Stoke City turned it up and beat Spurs 3-0 with Butland notching five saves in the effort.

Jack Butland has started two matches this season and they couldn't have gone any more differently for either he or Stoke City. After a fairly limp loss to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, Butland rebounded with five saves and his teammates scored three to topple stumbling Spurs at the Britannia. It may be a preview of things to come as there are persistent rumors that Asmir Begovic will leave the Potteries this summer leaving Butland as the potential starter in goal for 2015-16.

Jack Butland will start for Stoke City in Week 36 after Asmir Begovic underwent a "minor procedure".

Mark Hughes said that it was always his intention to give Butland a couple of starts late in the season to see what he has with Begovic possibly off after the season. With Begovic having a minor procedure, the opportunity was clear to do just that without worry that Begovic might take offense and be that much more inclined to leave in the summer. Spurs have been a bit goalshy in recent weeks but Stoke City haven't been great either so Butland should only be an option if you're in a desperate situation.

Jack Butland, Stoke City's young, promising keeper, will go to Leeds United on loan as Paddy Kenny is injured.

Butland started for Stoke when both Asmir Begovic and Thomas Sorenson were unavailable. He's still one for the future, so with both veterans healthy, the more game time Butland can get the better.

Jack Butland has been hailed as a potential future star in the Premier League but his first taste of league action has been rough as he lost for the second consecutive week.

Stoke's current form has done Butland no favors as he has been pelted with shots. Against Liverpool last weekend it wasn't shocking but that Crystal Palace could get opportunities is as damning of the Stoke defense as it is of the keeper. After six goals against and two losses in two matches, Butland's confidence will no doubt be tested.

Goalkeeper Jack Butland will start for Stoke City again as they travel to Crystal Palace.

With both Asmir Begovic and Tomas Sorensen hurt, the promising Butland has a chance to stake his claim as a Premier League caliber keeper. Stoke have been rough on their travels, and a revitalized Crystal Palace under Stoke's former manager, Tony Pulis, will be a test for them.
