Pulis: It's been a surreal season

I think it's been a surreal season, not just for Stoke, but for the Premier League. Before Wigan's game on Tuesday night, we were 11th and still in contention to get relegated which is unbelievable; I've never known that," he said.

We've done it (survived) in the past with seven or eight games to go and it's been a walk in the park but it's very different this year.

People expect more and that's the way it is. The more successful you are the more they want. That's a challenge for everybody here.

If you don't reach the standards some people think you should be reaching they criticise you.

– Stoke manager Tony Pulis.
