Stoke boss Hughes hails matchwinner Assaidi

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes was delighted with matchwinner Oussama Assaidi after victory over Chelsea.

Assaidi is on loan from Liverpool for the season, and chose some way to score his first Premier League goal.

Hughes said: "I did say to him, 'You need to be ready if called upon, you need to come on and make an impact' - I didn't anticipate he was going to make such an impact but I'm glad he did."
