Five of the best: Captial One Cup contenders (6)

Published Add your comment


For an outside bet, how about the Potters?

Mark Hughes is seeking redemption and early signs are he has got Stoke playing a more attractive style of football.

However, conceding from three set pieces on Sunday at Arsenal  was very un-Stoke like, and Hughes will want to keep that central core of strength while improving City’s technical skills.

In the likes of Peter Crouch, Steven N’Zonzi, centre-back pairing Ryan Shawcross and Robert Huth and excellent keeper Asmir Begovic, Stoke have a team that can frighten any opponent, and a trip to Tranmere should not provide too many problems.

Hughes will hope to have City happily away from any relegation worries and with a plethora of winners medals from his playing days but nothing to show during his managerial career, ‘Sparky’ will have all the motivation he needs to finally lead a team to a trophy.
