Stoke City boss Tony Pulis is keen for all three newly-promoted Premier League clubs to 'buck the trend' and avoid relegation this season. "It would be fantastic for us, or me personally, if all three clubs stay up," Pulis told Sky Sports News.

"That would buck the trend and that would be better for everyone.

"It would give the Premier League a better perspective if teams are not just coming up and being cannon fodder.

"But we have to do it and that is the big thing. That is what we are concentrating on."
