5,000 - The number of Stoke fans at the game who said this sentence as Adam had a shot from the halfway line: 'That's an awful cross. Is it a cross? It's a shot! That's a great effort!' #mindchanger


0 - The number of people who said 'he's gonna bag this and get us a point' as soon as Jon Walters stepped up to take that penalty. #pleasegodneveragain


30,000 - Approximately the number of Stoke fans who wanted to see Nzonzi beat Lucas to a pulp after their spat. #knockout


45 - The number of years the the crossbar by the kop end will keep rattling after Huth's volley nearly destroyed it. #couldhavekilledsomebody
