The striker is a doubt for Wednesday's clash with Cardiff at the Britannia Stadium, which defender Robert Huth and forward Marko Arnautovic will definitely miss.

Huth has had a successful operation on his knee and could be back in three to four weeks while Arnautovic is still recovering from a hamstring strain.
