Ibrahim Afellay suffers cruciate ligament injury

The 30-year-old, who has been capped 52 times by Holland, suffered what the club have called a "serious knee injury" in Friday's training session and was not in the squad for the Potters' Saturday lunchtime clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

In a quote published on Stoke's official Twitter account, boss Mark Hughes said: "It's unfortunate for Ibrahim

He twisted his knee in training

He'll come back stronger with our support."
