Stoke City midfielder Jermaine Pennant has issued a word of warning to FA Cup final opponents Manchester City.

The 28-year-old star says, 'what the Potters did to Arsenal, they can do to City too'.

Pennant is enjoying a new lease of life under manager Tony Pulis, after moving to the Britannia Stadium from Spain after a spell playing in La Liga with Real Zaragoza.

And after scoring for Stoke in Sunday's 3-1 Barclays Premier League victory over the Gunners at the weekend, Pennant reflected:

"It has set us up nicely for the cup final because beating Arsenal shows that we can beat other big teams.


"The manager said before the match that the next two games were the biggest of the season – and this has put us in just the right frame of mind.

"As a team, we have worked so hard and hopefully we can take exactly the same qualities into the next match."

Pulis and the Potters will be looking to cap a wonderful season which has so far propelled them into the top half of the table, with victory at Wembley on Saturday.

"We know that City are just as good, and it will be just as hard as it was on Sunday, but if we set out in the same way it should be a good game," Pennant concluded.
