Crouch says Stoke can upset Man Utd in Cup

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch is convinced they can upset Capital One Cup opponents Manchester United.

The former England international believes they have nothing to fear from the fallen giants.

Crouch said: "It's last eight of the cup, Man United at home so everyone is looking forward to playing in that atmosphere for a chance to get to a semi-final.

"We can be confident. We gave a good account of ourselves at Old Trafford (a 3-2 defeat in October), when we were unlucky not to win or at least get a point.

"Hopefully we can play as well as we have been, and as well as we played to beat a full-strength Chelsea side last time at the Britannia.

"I don't know if United will rest players but either way, if we can beat a full-strength Chelsea side at home we can beat anyone."
