Johnson blow for Stoke


Stoke have been dealt a blow with the news that Glen Johnson will miss up to four weeks with a thigh injury.

Johnson was ruled out of England squad for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers to face Malta and Slovenia because of a thigh injury but he had been expected to be fit to face Sunderland on Saturday.

However, he injured his other thigh during a training session on Tuesday and the latest setback will result in him missing between three and four weeks.

"Glen pulled up in training with a thigh injury. It's not the one he injured previously, it's on the opposite [leg]," Stoke manager Mark Hughes told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

"He came back from England and he trained on Tuesday and he pulled up. It looks like it could be three to four weeks, maybe more, unfortunately."

Stoke are without a win in the Premier League this season but Hughes is confident they will end that streak soon.

"It's one we need to win and feel that we can win. We have than enough ability to do that," Hughes stated.

Conor McGregor will fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt at UFC 205 in New York on November 12 live on the eir Sport pack. The eir Sport pack is free to all eir broadband customers. To learn more about setting sport free visit www.eir.ie/sport .
