Asmir Begovic is hoping Stoke can start replicating their big-game form against sides occupying a standing below them in the table.
The Potters have often raised their game for crunch clashes with Premier League high-fliers, with title-chasing Manchester City held to a 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.
Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea and City have gathered just three points between them in the Potteries this season, with Tony Pulis' side a notoriously difficult nut to crack.
They are, however, aware that they need to maintain those standards if they are to secure a top-half finish, with it important that they give as much in a weekend meeting with relegation-threatened Wigan as they did against City last time out.
"Against all the top sides at home we have done incredibly well and it is a game everyone gets up form" said Begovic.
"We just have to keep that consistency of performance against other teams as well and I am sure we will kick on in the table."
Stoke's stalemate with City saw them take in their 48th fixture of a gruelling season that has featured lengthy runs in Europe and domestic cups, and Begovic admits the stamina of his team-mates is astonishing.
"I don't know where the guys get the energy," said the Bosnian keeper.
"We keep plugging away and sticking together and that is the most important thing. The spirit and togetherness is going to carry us through to the end and hopefully make for a good finish."
