Stoke City FC manager Mark Hughes spoke about the play of Ramadan Sobhi, who received his second career Premier League start after returning from AFCON duty with Egypt.

“There were plenty of chances through the first half, fortunately Allen and Ramadan turned one into goal” said Mark Hughes, explaining how Sobhi contributed to the deciding goal in the match.

He added, “It’s important that when players come on they have an impact, and it was a good game for Ramadan today.”

Hughes stated that Ramadan affected the game with his energy, as well as with his lay off to assist Joe Allen on the Welsh international’s game-winning goal. He also added that he felt Sobhi’s one-on-one ability in wide areas was a crucial factor in his decision to play him from the start.

 

Stoke City are now 9th in the Premier League table and will face Tottenham Hotspur in week 26 on February 26th, 2017.
