"It will be a tough game on Sunday," he stressed. "There was unbelievable pressure on Stoke against Aston Villa from the crowd but they will expect United to win and will be right behind their team.
"They realise Stoke are getting in a dangerous situation so it's a big game for us on Sunday and the atmosphere will be unbelievable. The Stoke lads will get cheered on right from the start until the very end yet they were booed off over the weekend because they were expected to win and didn't. It's a tricky game for us."
United are unbeaten in Premier League history against Stoke, winning eight and drawing one of the nine fixtures between the two clubs.
