United face a towering Stoke side at Old Trafford today.
And United boss Fergie said: â€śWe have got the Jolly Green Giants coming to play against us. You can get yourself in a tangle about it.â€ť
But Ferguson has told his players not to be threatened and that if they stick to their game plan they can cut Stoke down to size.
He said: â€śYou canâ€™t make it a terror for yourself. Hopefully we can play our game.
â€śThey are difficult to play with their long throw-ins.
â€śYou know they are going to get a set-piece, you know they are going to get a long throw-in into the box, we know they are going to get long balls up to Peter Crouch, so our preparation is simple â€” we know what they are going to do.
â€śSometimes you play teams and you donâ€™t know what they are going to do.
â€śBut with Stoke we know exactly what they are going to do.
â€śSo we will play our game and hopefully it works.â€ť
