Stoke boss Hughes: Man Utd not good enough to win title

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes believes the Premier League title will be beyond Manchester United this season.

Stoke tackle a United side winning seven and drawing two of their last nine league fixtures to catapult themselves into third, seven points behind City and 10 adrift of leaders Chelsea.

"There's some very strong teams ahead of them," Hughes observed, "so they may have given themselves too much to do.

"They have the players to go on extended runs, as they are at the moment, but key moments will have to go for them and others will have to slip up for it to go for them."
