    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Referee Mark Clattenburg blows the full-time whistle and Stoke make it back-to-back wins. Burnley, though, remain winless on the road.

    Five minutes of added time now.

  4. CLOSE!

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Stoke midfielder Joe Allen strikes a powerful effort after latching on to a Peter Crouch knockdown but the ball is beaten away by Paul Robinson.

    Moments later, Robinson's opposite number Lee Grant makes a fine diving save to keep out Andre Gray's well-struck angled shot.

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Less than 10 minutes to go. Burnley are going to need something special here.


    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Sam Vokes on for George Boyd. Burnley are going to make a fist of it in what remains of the game. Stoke's defence standing firm at the moment.


    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    A crunching tackle from Jon Flanagan on Marko Arnautovic curtails the Austrian's afternoon. He's not best pleased about it as he sits on the bench chuntering away. Peter Crouch comes on to replace him.

    A few more tasty tackles go in afterwards. It's all gone very scrappy now.

    A heavy challange

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Joe Allen slips a lovely ball for Marko Arnautovic to chase. After not putting a foot wrong all afternoon, the Austrian misses a step and gets himself in a bit of tangle before falling into the turf. Arnautovic, sporting a mid-1990s bleached-blond haircut, chuckles to himself as he climbs to his feet.

    Moments later the same pair combine and this time Allen manages to get a shot on target but Paul Robinson is well stationed to gather. Stoke have been much improved since the Welshman's arrival.

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Bruno Martins Indi is clutching his jaw. He leaps for a high ball with Ashley Barnes and is caught by the Burnley man's elbow. There didn't look to be any malice from Barnes, although it would be interesting to see if Mark Hughes sees it the same way.


    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Stoke have been a bit flat and Mark Hughes responds by replacing Xherdan Shaqiri with Joe Allen, who will provide plenty of energy.

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Jeff Hendrick hauls down Republic of Ireland colleague Jonathan Walters. Hendrick, who has already been booked, looks nervously at Clattenburg but the referee is happy just to give a free-kick.

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Marc Muniesa has a wrestling match with Andre Gray as the pair battle to chase a ball. Referee Mark Clattenburg blows up and decides it was Muniesa who was the aggressor and awards a free-kick.

    Burnley's fans are not particularly happy that Clattenburg decided to pull the free-kick back rather than when in the penalty area.

    Scott Arfield strikes the subsequent free-kick into the wall.  

    Two players come together

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Stoke sitting a little deeper, perhaps looking to hit Burnley on the break. The visitors are showing much greater intent but will need something to show for it. A third goal for Stoke and it's probably game over.

  14. CLOSE!

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Burnley begin the half brightly again. Ashley Barnes shoots from distance and Lee Grant tips the ball over the crossbar.

  15. KICK-OFF

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Referee Mark Clattenburg shares a quick joke with Stoke defender Erik Pieters before kick-off and we are back under way in the Potteries. 


    Stoke 2-0 Bunley

    Bunrley's bright start quickly faded and Stoke are now well and truly bossing this game. Sean Dyche needs some words of wisdom during the interval if his side are to come away with anything from the Potteries. 

    Mark Hughes will just ask for more of the same from his players.

    The next goal will be crucial.

    Sean Dyche is unhappy

    Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Jonathan Walters looks like he has broken clear, but just when he is about to pull the trigger Ben Mee makes a superb interception to take the ball off the Stoke striker's toe. 

    Moments later Jeff Hendrick has Burnley's best chance of the half at the other end when he gets on the end of a flick only for Lee Grant to paw the ball away.

  18. GOAL - Stoke 2-0 Burnley

    Marc Muniesa

    A lovely finish from Marc Muniesa.

    Marko Arnautovic puts on-loan Liverpool right-back Jon Flanagan in a spin with those quick feet of his and he cuts the ball back for Muniesa. 

    The former Barcelona man produces the kind of finish that would not look out of place at the Nou Camp as he crisply strikes a low volley into the net. Not bad for a centre-back.

    Stoke score their second goal
  19. Diouf's impact

    Stoke 1-0 Burnley


    Mame Biram Diouf created Stoke's opener for Jon Walters and it had been coming - the majority of Stoke's attacks have come down the Senegalese's right flank.

  20. Post update

    Stoke 1-0 Burnley

    The twinkle-toed Marko Arnautovic glides into the Burnley penalty box with the elegance of a ballroom dancer. The Austrian manages a low shot which Ben Mee, rather less gracefully, slides to block.
