Stoke City captain Ryan Shawcross broke down in their Capital One Cup defeat to Manchester United.

For Stoke boss Mark Hughes, a disappointing evening was made worse by a groin injury to Shawcross.

"We don't know how bad it is," said Hughes.

"We will have to see tomorrow. It is a big blow if we lose him because we are without Robert Huth at the moment."
