Stoke’s Jack Butland wore a plain green jersey against Aston Villa as a tribute to England’s World Cup winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks.

It was an emotional occasion at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday as Stoke played their first home game since the passing of the legendary stopper, and the club paid fitting tribute to him before their clash with Villa.

Stoke manager Nathan Jones was proud of the club’s tribute to Banks, saying after the match: “I think we lost our focal point, but let’s start by saying, I’m proud of our club today, in terms of our club, our fans. Villa were also contributed to that, I thought they were exemplary.
