The Potters were knocked out in the fourth round by Manchester City on Saturday but can reignite their push for a top-10 finish in the Premier League with victory against the Latics at the Britannia Stadium.

Whelan told the club's website: "We have to dust ourselves down now and bounce straight back because we have a massive game coming up on Tuesday.

"It would have been nice to have progressed in the FA Cup because we have seen what it can do for the club. Sadly, though, it just wasn't to be for us this year.

"We have performed well over the last few years in this competition by reaching two quarter-finals and a final, so we can be proud of that achievement.

"The Premier League is the bread and butter, though, and we can now fully focus our attentions on that and aim to get as high up the league table as we possibly can.

"We want to get into the top half this year, and hopefully we can achieve that now."

Wigan progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup after edging out Macclesfield but are in dire need of a good result, having slipped to second from bottom in the table.

Roberto Martinez's side have managed only one victory from their last 10 Premier League matches but they do have a decent record at Stoke, losing on only one of their last six visits.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
