Butland, who arrived at Stoke from Birmingham City in 2013, has made 28 Championship appearances this season, conceding 43 goals and keeping eight clean sheets, with the former England goalkeeper averaging a less than impressive 6.23 WhoScored match rating this term.
However, in his last two outings, he appears to have refound some form, earning 7.17 and 7.63 match ratings respectively.
Following the match, Butland posted on Twitter: “Had to grind that point out. Happy with another shutout! Big game Saturday.”
In reaction to his comments, Stoke fans took to social media, with some unhappy that their goalkeeper was content with a point, while others simply praised their shot-stopper for his efforts throughout the match.

If we survive this season we need to take a good hard look at ourselves Jack. We should not be patting ourselves on the back for drawing games like this. We should be asking why we didn’t win !
Well played Jack. Every game a cup final from now on! Go arnnn Stoke?

What do we think?
Stoke are by no means safe as yet, despite picking up four points from their last two games.
