Manchester United Sir Alex Ferguson insists that visiting the Britannia to take on Stoke City is never an easy task.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes that his team will face a "difficult" battle against struggling side Stoke City this weekend.

The Red Devils can edge closer to clinching the Premier League title with a victory over the Potters, who are three points away from relegation.

"It's still a difficult place to go to," Sky Sports News quotes Ferguson as saying. "Ask any manager and player you know you have to perform to get a result there.

"It's one of those grounds where they have a great support and the atmosphere is always guaranteed so we have a job to do."

United can restore their 15-point lead at the top of the table due to Manchester City's focus on the FA Cup on Sunday.
