Leicester City v Stoke City: Latest team news

Have your say

Stoke winger Xherdan Shaqiri could make his return to action in Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Leicester at the King Power Stadium.

Shaqiri, sidelined by a hamstring injury of late but back in training on Thursday, will be assessed by boss Mark Hughes, who is also monitoring a hamstring issue forward Marko Arnautovic has been playing with.

Hughes will definitely still be without Geoff Cameron (ankle) and Shay Given (knee) for what is the first of four away games for the Potters in quick succession, but Stephen Ireland, Marc Muniesa and Phil Bardsley are all now fit for selection.

Provisional squad: Butland, Haugaard, Shawcross, Wollscheid, Wilson, Muniesa, Johnson, Pieters, Bardsley, Whelan, Van Ginkel, Adam, Sidwell, Ireland, Arnautovic, Afellay, Bojan, Shaqiri, Walters, Diouf, Joselu, Crouch, Odemwingie.
