Stoke City manager Mark Hughes believes that gap between the top Premier League clubs and the rest of the league is only getting bigger.
That distance between the elite clubs at the top and the rest of us has got bigger.
There was a point when Leicester were winning the league when everybody thought, ‘Goodness me, we’ve got closer to them’. Then all of a sudden, the big boys go, ‘No, you haven’t’ and spend £200million, £300m and they create that gap again.
Hughes’ Stoke side find themselves 16th in the Premier League table, two points above the drop zone after a tricky start to the season.
Stoke are in a tricky run of form, with just one win in their last five Premier League matches.
