Stoke are 10 points clear of the drop zone in the relative safety of 13th place and look well set for a fifth straight season in the top flight. But Ryan Shawcross believes simply securing Premier League survival is not good enough.

"I hope it's enough to stay up, but we want to do better than that," the defender told the Sentinel.

"We have a great team spirit and we all want to win in there.

"We have had a great season so far, but we need to top it off in the last seven games to get as many wins as we can."
