Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has been speaking ahead of Saturday's game at Manchester United and his views on the task ahead for new Old Trafford manager David Moyes. "I think David [Moyes] probably expected the reaction he has had because he has stepped into the shoes of a great footballing man. It will be difficult for any manager of Manchester United. He is a very experienced man, and I am sure that he will again continue to show how good a manager he is.

"I would think that they will be there or there about come the end of the season. You have to be careful though because there are only a certain amount of games that you can lose if you want to win the league.

They are a little bit adrift at the moment, but if you ever question Manchester United, more often than not they will hit back with the answers."
