Man City vs Stoke - Premier League preview and team news


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Friday 29 August 2014

Manchester City will be aiming to continue their perfect start to the defence of their title when they take on Stoke City on Saturday.


Etihad Stadium


The champions were still some way off their best in beating Liverpool on Monday, but the comfort with which they eventually won 3-1 sends out an ominous message to the rest of the Premier League.


Stevan Jovetic emerged from the shadow of his fellow strikers with two goals in a strong performance, while having Sergio Aguero available from the bench to score the third just typified a strength in depth available to manager Manuel Pellegrini.


The Potters have lost all six of their previous Premier League visits to the Etihad Stadium without scoring a single goal, so things do not bode well for Mark Hughes, who will as ever be looking to put one over on his former club. He will be disappointed by his side’s first two performances, as they faded badly against Aston Villa and then struggled to a draw against the 10 men of Hull City.


For Man City, Edin Dzeko should be fit after recovering from a knock he picked up against Liverpool. Fellow striker Alvaro Negredo and defender Eliaquim Mangala will not feature.


Geoff Cameron and Stephen Ireland miss out for Stoke due to thigh and rib injuries respectively, but Phil Bardsley and Glenn Whelan have shaken off knocks and should start.
