Alarm bells started to ring out after the veteran goalkeeper did not reappear for the second half at Manchester City on Saturday, and it was later revealed he was struggling with his groin.

Stoke have yet to comment on the injury, but reports have claimed it is nothing serious and he should be able to take his place in the starting line up against Sunderland this weekend.

If correct, the news will also come as a huge boost to the Republic of Ireland, who want to include him in their squad for the forthcoming European Championships.

Given has been handed his chance in the Stoke side after Jack Butland was ruled out for the season with an ankle injury, while youngster Jakob Haugaard looked unconvincing when conceding six goals in two matches.

“It was the perfect answer,” he said. “It was a fantastic performance. Without Jamie Vardy everyone gave something more. We knew we had some difficulties but with the fight of everybody we had a good match.

“We know it will be tough because Tottenham are a good team but we will fight until the end. Tottenham could win all their matches, so we still need five points.

“We dream and now it is important to make the dream a reality. It is important to fight for that reality. Now is the right moment to push with everything so that there are no regrets if Tottenham are better than us.” Leonardo Ulloa, in for Vardy, scored twice either side of the break, in between Rihad Mahrez’s early opener and Marc Albrighton’s late final flourish.

And the stand-in striker claimed that the win proved that Leicester are not simply a one-man team.
