Tony Pulis: Stoke manager demands concentration against Tottenham

The Potters will mark their 150th anniversary with a series of events before the game, including a variety of on-field entertainment and a parade of more than 80 former players.

The likes of Sir Geoff Hurst and Gordon Banks are set to make an appearance, and, while Pulis acknowledges how special it will be for supporters, he wants his side to focus on Spurs and nothing else.

"We're hoping we can put in a good performance. It's a big game for us as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the football club," he said.

"The club has a lot of stuff going on around the game but what we have to do is concentrate on giving Tottenham a run for their money.

"The celebrations will be good for the crowd but we won't see any of it - we'll be preparing in the dressing room.

"The big thing for us is to concentrate on the game and let everyone else enjoy the occasion.

"The important thing for me is the 90 minutes. When the whistle goes the supporters will want the players to be right on it and taking the game to Tottenham."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
