Whelan faces six weeks out
Stoke midfielder Glenn Whelan could be out for up to six weeks after fracturing his leg. The 30-year-old took a knock while playing for Ireland in the 1-1 draw with Germany earlier this month, forcing him to miss last weekend's Premier League win over Swansea.
"Glenn unfortunately has a fracture in his leg. He picked it up in the international game," manager Mark Hughes told reporters ahead of the clash with Southampton. "There is a slight fracture, but he hasn't been put into a plaster cast. We feel that he can come back sooner by avoiding that."
