Jermaine Pennant is one player that has tried his luck among the best teams in England and while he stressed that they are all massive clubs, the Stoke City player admitted that the team spirit at the Britannia is better than at Liverpool and Arsenal.

According to the Sun, Pennant said: "I've been at Arsenal and Liverpool and they are massive clubs but they've got something missing, you don't feel the togetherness.

"You'll have foreigners there and the English players over here and they'll all be separated. At Stoke everyone is one. Here everything is just perfect."

Ahead of their FA Cup final against Manchester City tomorrow, Pennant is convinced that the Potteries will head to Wembley as underdogs. Nevertheless, the fact that Stoke reached the final is already something to be cherished as far as Jermaine Pennant is concerned.

"Because it's such a massive achievement for the club to get to the cup final it makes it that little bit better. If you are at teams who get to an FA Cup final every other year it's like, 'OK we got to another cup final, great'.

"But it's the first time for Stoke so it means more and it's a first for me so we've got something in common."
