Peter Crouch's status for Boxing Day is up in the air due to a neck injury he picked up in the second half of the Potters' Week 17 loss to Chelsea.
With Everton coming off a drubbing at the hands of Southampton and generally looking less than impressive this season, Crouch will be wanting to do everything possible to get back for Stoke City's Boxing Day match at Goodison Park. Given the extra day between team news coming out and the actual matches being played there will inevitably be more uncertainty than usual. Fantasy managers should be cautious in situations like this where a player's status is uncertain. Dec 24 - 10:10 AM

The toothless attacking forces of Crystal Palace and Stoke canceled each other out in an uninspiring 1-1 draw on Saturday.

James McArthur headed his first goal in 15 games to give Palace the lead after 11 minutes, but Stoke striker Peter Crouch equalized inside two minutes, tapping in Jon Walter's deflected shot.

Stoke City's attack struggled on the road as they only had one shot on target against Southampton.

Stoke were overall not good today as they only had 38.5% possession against a dominating Southampton squad. They couldn't keep possession and the counter-attack was often stopped quickly by them giving away possession. They only registered eight shots with one of them being on target. The only time we'd recommend using Stoke players is at home, and even then, you should focus on their defense.

After starting the season as a sub for the first two matches and producing little in his first two starts, Peter Crouch has come on with two goals and an assist in his last two PL matches.

Mark Hughes had a lot of new faces to integrate in the early part of the season with Mame Biram Diouf, Bojan, Victor Moses, and Oussama Assaidi all arriving to join the existing team. It has taken a while but Hughes seems to have settled on Crouch and Diouf as his preferred forwards with Moses firing in crosses at a prolific rate. The results have been strong for the lanky Crouch who has scored from two and knocked another to Diouf for a goal. With Diouf now injured it will be interesting to see how the dynamics change.

Peter Crouch scored for the second straight week with a header in the 15th minute, and Stoke City held on to take the points in the 1-0 final over Newcastle.

Also like last week, Victor Moses was the architect for most of the evening and is shaping up to have a fine season with the Potters after being an afterthought at Anfield last year. Moses sent in the cross that Crouch would beat Fabricio Coloccini to in order to score. Mame Diouf had to exit the game early due to injury and there should be details on that soon, but Stephen Ireland made a return from his own injury to play the final half hour.

Peter Crouch was the attacking star of the day for Stoke City, assisting their first goal and scoring their next, but the Potters would let two advantages slip away and settled for a 2-2 draw with QPR.

It was a breakout day for Crouch, as he registered both his first goal and assist of the 2014/2015 campaign. When his height is taken advantage of, it is just a matter of finding him with a cross in the box, and Stoke's first goal was a result of just that, but instead of heading into goal, he flicked it on to Mame Diouf, who scored his second goal of the season. Crouch would get his in the second half after firing home a lovely low cross fross from Victor Moses. Diouf seems to be the better value in fantasy right now, but Crouch is hitting some form right now.

No, it isn't THAT Diouf that Stoke are pursuing but former Manchester United forward Mame Biram Diouf who has scored 33 goals over two seasons for Hanover in the Bundesliga.

With Peter Odemwingie, Peter Crouch and Jon Walters all on the wrong side of 30, it makes sense that Stoke are looking to refresh their options at forward this summer. Mark Hughes is never far from a connection to Manchester United when scouring the transfer market and Diouf fits the pattern as a former United player (granted one who only appeared 5 times for the Red Devils). Since leaving the Premier League, Diouf has flourished and could be a solid acquisition in the prime of his career at the age of 26.

F Peter Crouch has been linked with a move to QPR and Crystal Palace next month, but Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is certain he won't be going anywhere.

Hughes was very pleased with the 32-year old's effort after his team's 2-1 win over Aston Villa this past weekend. "He's an accomplished football player. He's been playing at this level for a long time and you don't do that unless you're a very good player." The Stoke manager went on to confirm his thoughts on a possible transfer that would send the English forward to another club in the new year. "He's not going anywhere in January." A move would leave them with very little options up top so this seems pretty cut-and-dry. Crouch has two goals and an assist in back-to-back victories at home.

Peter Crouch scored the game winning goal against Aston Villa in what ended up as a 2-1 win for Stoke City.

Charlie Adam opened the scoring for Stoke but it was Crouch who put them up ahead for good. Crouch has been a relatively poor fantasy option this season as he hasn't seen the ball in the back of the net very often. Stoke's impressive home record has pushed them up to 10th place while Aston Villa drop down to 13th after today. Stoke's defense did well once again but they couldn't get a clean sheet and that caused them to lose valuable fantasy points.

In a match that offered few chances, the home side could not find an answer, as Stoke City and Cardiff City played to a 0-0 draw.

If you happened to watch this match instead of Luis Suarez, well, better luck next generation. There was a ball that found that net at the Britania, but it was a Geoff Cameron goal that was whistled for offsides. It appeared both clubs were happy to ensure coming away with one point and furthering themselves from relegation rather than go for the win. Crouch had been in decent form lately but all he could contribute was a yellow card. Once again, Stoke defense was on point at home and they remain a good investment against lower tier clubs but with Chelsea visiting this weekend, they are far from being recommended.

Stoke has upped their bid to take Benfica starlet Nelson Oliveira on loan in an effort to lure him away from Cardiff City.

Oliveira was considered the next big thing in Portuguese football, but a series of unspectacular loans has him being eyed by the Premier League's lesser lights. He's a big prospect, but has yet to start or score consistently.

In a move that will reunite both players with former (twice-over) managers, Queens Park Ranger's winger Junior Hoillet is rumoured to be on the way to Stoke City, with Peter Crouch moving the other way.

Hoillet had a year to forget with QPR, but was originally brought there by Mark Hughes, now managing Stoke City. He will provide competition for the likes of Matthew Etherington and Michael Kightly. Meanwhile, Crouch's move south would see Kenwyne Jones presumably the man to lead the line for the Potters.
