Mark Hughes hopes Stoke City can build on shock victory over Manchester City

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is hopeful that his side can build on last month's surprise victory over champions Manchester City.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is hopeful that his team can go on a run of victories after causing an upset to Premier League champions Manchester City.

Prior to the international break, the Potters earned a 1-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

On Saturday, Hughes's men will take on last season's Championship winners Leicester City at the Britannia Stadium.

"I think in fairness most of the papers gave us the credit we deserved," Hughes said in today's press conference. "To be fair to the people at Manchester City, they said we deserved the victory too, which was nice to hear.

"We have to use that performance and result as the standard now. We have set the bar for ourselves for the coming weeks and months. Leicester will be a totally different game. We will probably use the Aston Villa defeat as a bigger incentive to us. We let ourselves down."

After three games, Stoke sit 10th in the Premier League table.
