Can you name Stoke City’s XI from their first Premier League win in 2008?


On 23 August, 2008, Tony Pulis’ Stoke City registered their first-ever Premier League victory in a memorable 3-2 at home to Aston Villa. Can you remember that side?

Stoke soon established a reputation as party-crashers with some big wins against top sides on their way to a comfortable 12th-place finish, before becoming top-flight mainstays for a decade.

But how did it all begin? The Potters’ first three points of the season came in the second weekend of the campaign, and first match at the Brittania, with substitute Mamady Sidibe notching the match-winner against Martin O’Neill’s Villa in injury time. The question is: can you name the 11 men in Pulis’ first XI?

If that puts you on a Stoke nostalgia trip, why not try name the club’s top 15 Premier League goalscorers?
