Mark Hughes future

Mark Hughes reacts during the Premier League game between Stoke City and Bournemouth on October 21, 2017

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is facing questions over his future at the club following a poor run of form which has left the Potters teetering just above the relegation zone.

A 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United on New Year's Day made it just one win in their last seven Premier League matches, while they also possess the worst defensive record in the division.

Hughes remains adamant that he is still the right man for the job, but speculation has claimed that the Stoke board are considering his future.
