Stoke City manager Paul Lambert insisted that all eyes are geared towards gaining a positive result against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Monday evening.
The 48-year-old declined the opportunity to make any comment on the situation regarding Jese and Saido Berahino. On-loan Paris Saint Germain attacker Jese has reportedly failed to turn up for training, while Berahino has been demoted to train with the under-23s.
Stoke City manager Mark Hughes says he believes Saido Berahino’s claim that his drugs ban was a result of a spiked drink in a nightclub.
Hughes insists that the club have always known the background to the situation.
Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam has accused West Brom and Tony Pulis of leaking the news of Saido Berahino’s failed drug test. Berahino’s eight-week ban came to light last week, on the eve of the strikers return to Albion with new side Stoke.
Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has admitted the club were aware of Saido Berahino’s eight-week suspension for a failed drugs test when they signed the striker from West Bromwich Albion.
The 23-year-old signed for the Potters last month, having not played for the Baggies since September 10.
Former Stoke City defender Danny Higginbotham thinks the Potters will need to strengthen in January if they are to achieve their aim of finishing in the top half of the table.
Higginbotham had two spells at the club, racking up over 120 appearances in all competitions for Stoke City.
Now working in broadcast and print media covering the club, the Manchester-born pundit says that what the club are really lacking is a clinical centre-forward.
