City have only picked up four points from their opening five league games and though the Norwich boss said it had not been an ideal start it was still very early in the season to start to panic.

"We would want to be better placed than where we are, but we also have to realise that we're just five games into a new season and there are five teams who are only one point better off than we are," Hughton told the club's website.

"It's not a time or stage to panic. You have to stay calm through this period, and have the belief and the belief in the abilities of the team. We're very early in the season to be making judgements."

On the Stoke challenge, Hughton added: "Every game that we play - at home or away - is an opportunity to get three points and that's the way you have to look at it.

"I think their style of play has changed. How dramatically? I don't know. What Tony Pulis did in the seven years that he was there was magnificent. He got them promotion to the division and they've been a very stable and regular Premier League team.

"I think Mark has got different ideas, but the personnel in the team are the players that were there last season mainly.

"We'll take a fabulous support away from home, as we always do, and we've got to make sure that we're very much in the game."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
