LONDON. — Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri is likely to sit out Sunday’s English Premier League encounter against table-toppers Arsenal with a hamstring injury, manager Mark Hughes said.
The Switzerland international missed Wednesday’s 3-1 victory over Norwich City, which helped the Potters to climb up the table to seventh place after 21 games.
“He may miss out on Sunday’s game. The likelihood is he will probably need at least 10 days possibly more and that’s a real shame,” Hughes told the club’s website.
“He’s got damage to his hamstring unfortunately after pulling up in training. It’s a shame because he’s just started to acclimatise to the Premier League and we could have used his guile last night.” — Reuters.
