RYAN Shawcross insists Stoke cannot afford to try to keep a handle on JUST Diego Costa when they lock horns with free-scoring Chelsea.

But Stoke skipper Shawcross says he is not the only one who can make opposition defences hurt. He said: "It's a team game and they've got a lot of talented players. It's not just Diego Costa, there is Eden Hazard and...

Stoke City: Ryan Shawcross ever nearer to England recall - Mark...

STOKE boss Mark Hughes believes skipper Ryan Shawcross has never been closer to an England recall. Shawcross recently said he had stopped looking for England squad announcements after now going two years since his one and only senior appearance. But Roy Hodgson's presence at Stoke's win over Arsenal last weekend – his first visit to the Potteries as England chief – has filled Hughes with fresh optimism of seeing what he considers will be justice being doin. "Thankfully Roy came to...

Stoke City: Ryan Shawcross thanks fans for support through thick...

RYAN Shawcross's level head helps make him so popular with Stoke fans – and reluctant to pull the party poppers to celebrate his latest landmark. The centre-back became the first Potter for 19 years to make it to 300 appearances for the club when he walked out at Anfield last weekend. It was a chance to take a step back and look at the impact Shawcross has had at the Britannia Stadium since joining Stoke from Manchester United, initially on loan, in 2007. But the modest captain preferred...

Stoke City Extra Time: Don't rise to the anti Ryan Shawcross bait

IS it possible - and it will be difficult - for Stoke fans to ignore any chants against Ryan Shawcross tomorrow?Arsenal fans are almost certain to direct something at the Stoke skipper if previous years are anything to go by.We all know why, and the reasons don't need repeating here, but responding with anti Aaron Ramsey shouts do nothing for the reputation of Stoke fans.Worse, it could lead to a repeat of some of the wayward reporting we witnessed last season when Stoke supporters were derided...
