Stoke's Mark Hughes says a top-10 finish is well within reach

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson previews a busy week of Premier League fixtures ahead, and suggests top ELP fantasy picks.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes believes his side can virtually assure a top-10 finish by winning their next two matches.

The Potters have successive home games, against Hull on Saturday and Everton on Wednesday, and if they can take all six points on offer Hughes believes they will end the season in the top half of the  Premier League table.

James Milner and Manchester City meet Raheem Sterling and Liverpool on Sunday.

It's been a difficult week for Premier League clubs in European competition, with Manchester City and Arsenal suffering defeats at the hands of Barcelona and Monaco in the Champions League, and then Liverpool and Tottenham crashing out of the Europa League on Thursday night.

The biggest challenge here for some of England's leading clubs could be putting those setbacks behind them and re-focusing on domestic matters -- such as Liverpool and Manchester City, who meet on Sunday.

Stoke must not underestimate in-form Hull

Here are the 5 best saves from Week 26 in the Premier League including Brad Guzan's one-handed stop.

It's back to business at the Britannia for Mark Hughes' Stoke side, who play there for the first time on a Saturday this month as they entertain Steve Bruce's Hull side in a clash between two former Manchester United teammates.

It's been a week made easier by the side putting to bed the nightmares of successive 4-1 defeats against Manchester City and Blackburn Rovers with a deserved 2-1 win over near neighbours Aston Villa. Those three points were crucial to a club who looked in danger of losing...
