Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen admits he'd hate to have to face the throw-ins of teammate Rory Delap.

Sorensen told The Sentinel: "It is hard. It is all about decisions and, if you just get it slightly wrong, it is a goal.

"It is the same for defenders. As a striker you can gamble and try to get in, but as a defender you are a bit more cautious.

"I think that is what happened with the first goal (against Arsenal). Their keeper wasn't coming and the defenders were looking, but bang it was a goal."
