Stoke's Tony Pulis hits out at 'moaning' Arsene Wenger
Stoke's last midweek fixture was a 4-0 loss to Portsmouth in October
Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has dismissed Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger's concerns over fixture congestion and weakened teams as self-interested.
"Wenger is moaning like a drain because it doesn't suit Arsenal," said Pulis.
Phil Brown, whose Hull side have had a free week to prepare for their match against the Gunners on Saturday, has also responded to Wenger's complaints.
"At the top some teams can boast 50 or 60 players. I can't see a problem with two or three games in a week," he said.
Frenchman Wenger hit out at the Premier League fixture list after playing away games at Liverpool and Burnley before the home game with Hull at the weekend.
He also criticised Wolves manager Mick McCarthy's decision to leave out several first-choice players for Tuesday's 3-0 defeat against Manchester United suggesting that it damaged the credibility of the Premier League.
