Marc Wilson and Pieters join Philip Wollscheid and Phil Bardsley in something approaching a first team defensive group. With goal-shy Aston Villa the opponents this weekend, the Stoke City defense if of particular interest despite coming off of a brutal loss to Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup. Feb 20 - 3:21 PM

Stoke City were given a double whammy as they were outclassed by Arsenal in a 3-0 loss and lost fullback Erik Pieters to a groin injury in the process.

In a match they were never in, Stoke will be wondering if they were better off not showing up if it meant one of their starters were to pick up an injury. Marc Muniesa came on to replace Pieters at the start of the second half and would figure to occupy the left back role should Pieters miss next week when the Potters look to bounce back against a QPR side who have yet to collect a point on the road this season.

Erik Pieters scored his first goal in six years in any competition and it was enough to secure a home win for Stoke against Newcastle.

The irony here is that Pieters' first goal in such a long time really wasn't intentional. His intention appeared to be to make a cross and it ended up finding the net behind Tim Krul. The win moved Stoke to within three points of Newcastle and a place in the top half of the table. With Newcastle stumbling badly you wouldn't bet against the Potters finishing 9th for the first time in their history.

Stoke City fullback Erik Pieters suffered a calf injury against Arsenal at the weekend and had to be withdrawn after the hour mark.

Pieters will miss Stoke's Capital One Cup match against Tranmere, but is expected back for the weekend's match against Norwich. Marc Muniesa is expected to deputize for Pieters, and Stoke have also confirmed that Asmir Begovic will be rested for this match. Thomas Sorensen will come in net for the Potters.
