Time at Club:
Stoke City are managed by Mark Hughes who replaced long-standing boss Tony Pulis in 2013. Hughes was charged with inspiring a new era at the Britannia, and went on to lead the club to three consecutive 9th place finishes, however the Welshman will be disappointed with 13th spot last term.
Stoke, under former boss Pulis, won promotion to the Premier League back in 2008, and since then have become an established top flight team. The Potters reached the FA Cup Final in 2011, but despite losing to Man City they qualified through to the Europa League where they made it through to the knockout stages.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Stoke City collect wins versus Bristol City, Norwich City & Swansea City while suffering adverse results at Birmingham City, Nottingham Forest & Blackburn Rovers. Draws against Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Sheffield United & Rotherham United has seen them show mid-table form at best.
