Pulis disagrees with "moaning" Wenger over Wolves

Stoke manager Tony Pulis believes Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger is wrong to "moan like a drain" about weakened sides and fixture congestion.

Wenger was furious Wolves manager Mick McCarthy fielded a second-string team in the 3-0 defeat at Manchester United on Tuesday. After Arsenal's 1-1 draw at Burnley, he railed against the Premier League fixture schedule, which meant his side would play three matches in a week whereas Saturday's opponents Hull had no midweek involvement.

Pulis, however, believes that although the Wenger is arguing the case for his club, the Frenchman should just get on with the job.

"Wenger is moaning like a drain because it doesn't suit Arsenal. He ain't moaning because it doesn't suit Stoke," said Pulis. "He is saying it because it doesn't suit him and that was what Mick has done.

"I don't think it was the walk in the park (for United) that people are suggesting. The players Mick played, most of them are seasoned professionals - he hasn't played the youth team - who he has spent decent money on.

"There is one important point here and that is that Mick McCarthy will do whatever he thinks is best for Wolves."
