Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes believes that Stoke City have quality players who can stage an upset at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has warned his teammates not to underestimate Stoke City during their Premier League clash on Saturday.

The 37-year-old points out that the Potters could take inspiration from Tottenham Hotspur's 3-2 victory over the Red Devils at Old Trafford last month.

"Yes, they probably will be inspired by Tottenham, by the first 20 minutes especially," he told United Review.

"We can't let that happen again. Stoke have got some quality players now.

"They have had good players over the last couple of years, don't get me wrong, but I think they've stepped up even more now. It's a game we'll be hoping to win but it's one we know won't be easy."

United are currently second in the league table with 15 points from seven matches, four points behind leaders Chelsea.
