Hughes over the moon with positive Stoke performance

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has heaped praise on his side following the 6-1 drubbing of Liverpool at the Britannia Stadium.

The win in the final game of the season against the Reds on Sunday helped the Potters finish ninth with 54 points in what has been a successful campaign under the tutelage of Hughes.

"We couldn't have asked for a better finish to a really great season," he said.

"The level of performance in that first 45 minutes was exceptional and I don't think it reflects badly on Liverpool. I think most teams would have struggled to cope with the quality and intensity of our play.

"It is a great performance against a very good team with great individual talents, and we have been able to get the level of performance that I think a lot of people sensed we were capable of.

"Everything came together and we showed what a good side we are."
