As Stoke advance in the Premier League, striker Jon Walters insists no-one at the club is getting carried away with their current position. A deserved 3-1 win over Liverpool took Tony Pulis' side to within two matches of their all-time top-flight unbeaten record.

"We can't get too ahead of ourselves," said the Republic of Ireland international, who scored twice either side of Kenwyne Jones' header as Stoke recovered from Steven Gerrard's first-minute penalty against Liverpool.

"We've got Southampton and then (Manchester) City on New Year's Day and we have to keep going and keep our feet on the ground and as long as we do that we will be all right."
