Peter Crouch and Glenn Whelan sign new deals with Stoke

Peter Crouch will take on an important role as Bojan Krkic is out.

Peter Crouch and Glenn Whelan have both signed two-year contract extensions with Stoke, the club have announced.

Former England striker Crouch had been linked with a move away with his existing deal due to expire in June, but is now committed to the club until 2017.

Crouch joined Stoke from Tottenham in 2011, while Whelan has been with the Potters since 2008, helping them win promotion to the Premier League later that year.

Keeping Crouch became even more important to Stoke after the news earlier...

Bojan Krkic absence overshadows Stoke's preparation for QPR

Stoke play their first game with talisman Bojan this weekend when they host QPR, who have yet to gain a single point on the road this season.

It's been a week that Stoke fans won't forget in a hurry as their side prepare to welcome relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers to the Britannia. Players and fans alike must brush aside their anguish and disappointment at the loss of Bojan Krkic -- hard though that may be -- to cheer the men in red and white on to their latest victory against a Hoops side who have lost every league away game they have contested this season.

Their fans will be hoping that manager Harry Redknapp spends more time...

Manchester United faces an uphill climb to finish in the top four and secure a Champions League spot.

Welcome to the second edition of Insider's Premier League Forecaster, an end-of-season table projection fueled by ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI), a regression-based algorithm designed to predict soccer matches. SPI simulates the remainder of the season 10,000 times, using the odds of each projected match, with the end result presented in the table below.

If you missed the inaugural version two weeks ago, click here for a primer and the previous table. (Note: The previous table forecast was incorrect due to a projection error. Chelsea, not Manchester City, should have been the projected favorite to win the league leading up to matches Jan. 10.)

With a lull in Premier League action last week due to FA Cup and Capital One Cup matches, in this edition we break down table risers and fallers over the past few weeks and preview what promises to be one of the most important matches of the season: Chelsea versus Manchester City on Saturday.

Here's a look at the latest forecast for all 20 Prem teams, along with breakdowns of the title, Champions League and relegation battles.

Bojan's injury is tragic but opens the door for other Stoke players to step up

Bojan Krkic's season-ending injury is a bitter blow for Stoke as the Spanish striker was enjoying a good first season in England.
 

Stoke travelled to Rochdale on Monday night desperate to avoid the kind of upset some of their high-flying Premier League colleagues endured over the weekend. A professional 4-1 win saw the Potters through to the fifth round of the FA Cup but news of Bojan Krkic's season-ending knee injury cut short any celebrations on what turned out to be a costly evening for the club.

Having put his side ahead with just three minutes on the clock with a sublime volley from 25 yards, Stoke fans took a collective...
