Hughes' first home game in charge of the Potters is against newcomers Crystal Palace on August 24, with a trip to West Ham following on August 31.

Tricky games against Manchester City (H) and Arsenal (A) are pencilled in after that, with Christmas throwing up some tough fixtures.

Stoke face Newcastle away on Boxing Day, Tottenham away on December 28 and Everton at home on New Year's Day.

The campaign ends with a home game against Fulham on May 3 and trip to West Brom a week later.
