The former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager will be looking for a similar performance when his side take on the Potters at home this weekend.

Stoke, on the other hand enter this match after settling for a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion. That was their second draw in the league this campaign, following their another 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough on the opening day.
