Man City winger Navas: Why Stoke are just like Osasuna

Manchester City winger Jesus Navas has likened Stoke City to Spain's Osasuna.

Navas says Osasuna's physical style is similar to the Potters.

"While Stoke are a very English team," said Navas, "they do remind me of a side I used to come up against when I was at Sevilla.

"Whenever we played Osasuna, it was always a difficult game. They were a more physical side than the other La Liga teams and they played at a smaller stadium where their fans were right on top of you.

"We know from experience that playing at Stoke can be similar in many ways, especially if their fans are behind them throughout, so we have to try and get on top early and perhaps quieten the home support."
