Tony Pulis has once again jumped to the defence of Stoke's tactics and insists there is nothing wrong with the way the Potters play.
Roberto Mancini was left fuming with Stoke's physical approach as Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday and refused to shake the hand of Pulis at the end.
The City boss was particularly upset with Dean Whitehead's challenge on David Silva that left the player with a cut ear and he was so incensed he could not even face the media after the game.
Stoke also came in for stick following the draw with Tottenham in midweek but it could just be a case of sour grapes as the so called big boys do not get their own way and walk over teams.
"I don't think we do anything wrong at this football club," Pulis revealed. "We are competitive. We close people down. For me there's a make-up within the Premier League that is better than any of the big leagues.
"It's what makes it the best in the world as you have different styles, different systems. You have everything in the pot ? and it makes it exciting.
"No club ? and this is why it will be exciting right until the end ? goes anywhere, or should go anywhere, to any ground and do sometimes what Barcelona and Real Madrid do to teams in Spain.
"And that is just play a game and just walk through it. That won't happen in England."
