    Stoke’s Hughes senses Arsenal could win Premier League

    A longtime Manchester United player who managed two sides in London, this probably stings a bit for Mark Hughes. The Stoke City boss has admitted he’s feeling positive about Arsenal’s chances at a run to the Premier League title this season. Hughes, 53, leads his Potters into the Emirates Stadium for a 10 a.m. EDT Saturday date with the Gunners, and knows the challenge is high. The manager has the Potters up to ninth after a poor start to the season, and Stoke is closer to sixth than the relegation stew.

    So that’s what a loss under Steve Bruce feels like, huh? I do not care for it. Not one bit. Let’s never do it again. And with that in mind, Aston Villa are set to take on Wigan Athletic. And Wigan are... [looks in dictionary for the right words]... not good. Coming back to Villa Park, looking to make sure that December doesn’t spiral out of control, and playing under Steve Bruce, it’s easy to actually feel confident about this match. That’s really strange, isn’t it? When was the last time that you felt confidence in Aston Villa to do anything but lose? It’s been years, it feels like. So please, Aston Villa, reward our confidence. A nice 4-1 thrashing would be lovely. UTV Location: Villa Park,
