Stoke City v Tottenham Hotspur

Stoke manager impressed with midfielder in training and could use him for suspended Allen

Giannelli Imbula could start Sunday’s match at Watford after impressing Stoke City manager Mark Hughes in training.

Stoke’s record signing has not played in the Premier League since September but Joe Allen’s suspension and Imbula's determination has put him in contention.

“We have had a good response from taking him out of the side and it could be that we bring him back this weekend given the circumstances," Hughes told

"I certainly wouldn’t have any qualms with that.”
