After scoring Stoke's opening goal in the 55th minute, Clucas ran the length of the pitch before celebrating in-front of the travelling Swansea fans, fist-pumping before pointing to the name on the back of his shirt.

The 29-year-old had been taunted by his former supporters through the clash at the bet365 Stadium, with chants including, "What a waste of money!"
Clucas was deemed a flop at Swansea after signing from Hull City for a reported £15 million. He left only a year later for Stoke for over half the price, joining Stoke for £6 million.
When asked about the goal after the game, Clucas said:
It's being in the heat of the game and hearing the fans give you stick. It's one of them where you've got to give it both ways. If you give it, then you've got to take it.
That's how life works. They're giving me a bit of stick for missing in the first half, so if I score I'm, going to enjoy it a bit more.
It's nothing personal and the most important thing for us is the three points.
It must be a satisfying feeling silencing thousands of haters all at once and nobody epitomised it better than then-Manchester City striker Adebayor, who scored against former club Arsenal in 2009.
The Togolese forward, after scoring for City, ran the full length of the pitch to knee-slide and celebrate in front of the Arsenal supporters.
