Stoke boss Mark Hughes insists his side donÂ’t fear anyone as they prepare to face Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City.
Stoke have been in strong form of late, picking up 14 points from their last seven fixtures to climb up to eighth and maintain a hope of securing Europa League football.
However, they will now face a stern test of their credentials with trips to Liverpool and Manchester City either side of a home clash with Tottenham.
The Potters have already claimed victories over Liverpool and City this term and Hughes insists they donÂ’t fear anyone as they look to finish as strongly as possible.
Hughes said: Â“We have beaten Liverpool and Manchester City already this season and drawn away at Tottenham too, so we can take a lot of positivity from that.
Â“A lot of teams have struggled to do that, but we know that we can compete with those sort of teams now.
Â“We have proven that this season and in seasons past too, so it is now up to us to make sure we play well, hit our levels and execute our game plan, which is what we always try to do.
Â“We want to hopefully take points off of the teams around us in the table and for the most part we have done ok in that regard.Â”
