HUTH WARY OF UNITED
Stoke city defender Robert Huth has said that his club should be warned about the prospect of facing a backlash from Manchester United when both teams face each other in the Premier league. Stoke city have been one of the few times in the Premier league who have performed well against Manchester United, but they have often disappointed at the Old Trafford stadium.
Considering that this match is also at Old Trafford, Robert Huth has said that Stoke city do need to concentrate a lot in order to get something from the match. Manchester United come on the back of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
As a result, Sir Alex Ferguson would have prepared his side to face Stoke city in the best possible manner according to Robert Huth. Manchester United suffered the 2-1 defeat in the most difficult circumstances. There has been a lot of talk surrounding the racial abuse suffered by Patrice Evra, who was booed throughout the match by the Liverpool supporters. Liverpool gained the psychological advantage in the battle between the two clubs when they scored in the final few minutes of the match to secure their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
“You know what they’re like when they lose – they come back even stronger. It’s a massive game for us. I don’t think I’ve ever got anything from there so it will be great if we can perform and get a point or even win. We’re looking forward to it but we know it’s going to be a really tough game,” Stoke city defender Robert Huth said in the pre-match press conference ahead of the match with Manchester United at Old Trafford. Manchester United are two points behind leaders Manchester City.
