Hughes hamstrung by inury list


Summer excitement starting early at Stoke

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes says they dominated the game against West Ham United, and deserved to win.

It's the Saints who come marching into Stoke on Saturday with Ronald Koeman's men arriving in relatively inconsistent form in their quest for European qualification. Much like their hosts, Southampton have struggled to string results together of late and having stormed up the table in the early months of the season, they now find themselves wondering which team will turn up on Saturday. Stoke have their own targets of course, and despite a significant recent stutter and yet more losses to injury,...

Stoke wondering what might have been after Hughes' dodgy selection

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes was left frustrated after his side were held to a 1-1 draw at West Ham.

Stoke fans were scratching their heads at another questionable team selection ahead of the 1-1 draw at West Ham and were left wondering what might have been had boss Mark Hughes started his best side.

Arguably at least four of those who started on the bench should have been on the pitch from the outset in the latest game where the manager has tried to shoehorn Charlie Adam into a system that is clearly compromised by his inclusion.

The Scot was wrongly awarded another start off the back of his...

How Brek Shea went from Premier League outcast to starring with Kaka

Brek Shea says Orlando City teammate Kaka will remain on free kick duty despite his own good form from dead ball situations.

On March 8, with Orlando City trailing New York City FC 1-0 in their inaugural game, the Lions' Kevin Molino earned a late free kick near the top of the NYCFC penalty area. With Brek Shea standing nearby, Kaka duly lined up to take it. There was one problem, though.

"Kaka took a couple free kicks in that game and missed and he told me I could take the next one," Shea told ESPN FC. "But when he saw the wall line up I guess he saw something he liked and told me he was going to take it. So I was...

Stoke face West Ham eager to hit back after loss at Chelsea

Mark Hughes talks about his ambitions for Stoke ahead of their Premier League match with West Ham on Saturday.
The ESPN FC crew respond to your tweets in regards to Raheem Sterling and Eden Hazard's futures and who scored the better goal, Jermain Defoe or Charlie Adam.

It's a trip to West Ham for Stoke on Saturday, as Mark Hughes' men contest their second successive game on the road seeking their first win in four games.

The 2-1 loss against Chelsea last Saturday was a respectable one but Hughes will be hoping that his side produce more of an attacking threat to leave Upton Park with all three points.

The XI chosen on the day was very much with a game plan in mind but it was a selection that offered little in the final third -- Charlie Adam's stunning strike from...

Charlie Adam wonder goal not enough to grab a point for Stoke at Chelsea

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes was not surprised with Charlie Adam's long-range goal against Chelsea, as he's seen Adam attempt the stunt many times during training.

Stoke left Stamford Bridge with no points but a degree of pride after managing to keep the scoreline to a modest 2-1 Chelsea win on Saturday.

They were also able to celebrate one of the finest goals in Premier League history with one of Charlie Adam's attempted lobs on the goalkeeper finally coming off with a 65-yard strike that shocked the Blues just before the break.

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Charlie Adam (45') Chelsea 1-1 Stoke City

LONDON - Three quick thoughts from Chelsea's 2-1 Premier League victory over Stoke City at Stamford Bridge.

1. Hazard a class above -- again

If any team want to beat Chelsea to the Premier League title, their odds look longer than Charlie Adam's 59-metre strike, as Jose Mourinho's men overcame a long-range wonder goal from the Stoke man to take a 2-1 victory.

Chelsea may have to show even more resolve over the next few weeks, however, as they are likely to be without Diego Costa for some time....
