The Potters entered 2013 looking to push on and cement a top-half standing in the Premier League.

They have, however, collected just one win in 11 and are in danger of being dragged into a basement battle.

Pulis' men remain six points short of the 40-point mark which is widely considered to be enough to secure top-flight safety.

Wilkinson insists Stoke are looking for much more than simply survival, but concedes that they need to start piecing results together.

"It's always frustrating not getting those wins, but hopefully we can get one soon enough and relieve the pressure," he told Sky Sports News HD.

"You would have to ask the fans what they are thinking, but we're all set. Our aim is to finish top-10, so the more results we can get the better.

"The gaffer and the chairman have done unbelievable keeping the club where we are in the Premiership and everyone's fully behind them."

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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
