Stoke City boss Mark Hughes can't guarantee a place for on-loan Manchester City striker John Guidetti tonight against Sunderland.

It will be interesting to see if and how Guidetti features after he was quoted by Expressen as saying there will be "a problem" if he is not selected for the game.

The Sweden international has so far made one appearance for Stoke, as a substitute, and he was left on the bench for the duration of the Chelsea contest, a match he had felt unwell in the build-up to.

Hughes said on Tuesday: "John is another one who is in our thoughts, so we will take stock of one or two things between now and the game and then make a decision."
