Man City v Stoke City Team News

The footballing machine of Josep Guardiola approach this game suffering some particular squad losses. City's all-time striker Kun Aguero sustained a rib fracture in a car accident a while ago, persistent problems from year to year has rankled City captain Vincent Company.

Meanwhile, world football's most expensive defender situation for whom Man City splashed out 60m euros in last summer's transfer window, Benjamin Mendy, is deemed to be the biggest blow to the club as the French international is left nothing but make use of crutches until a full recovery believed to come in April 2018.

Despite the absence of a few first-team players, Potters are considered one of the most steady Premier League mid-table teams. They are eighth in the EPL rankings by a number of top-flight seasons of succession - 9th top-tier season, greatly surpassing those of West Bromwich, Swansea, West Ham, Southampton, Crystal Palace, Leicester City and other mid and bottom clubs on that matter.

Missing Players of Man City and Stoke City:

Manchester City: The biggest concern for Guardiola that emerged from the Crystal Palace game was Benjamin Mendy, who suffered an injury that will have ruled him out until April 2018. More for the Spanish manager's concerns is that Sergio Agüero, Vincent Kompany and Fabian Delph are not available to be chosen through fitness problems.

Stoke City: Julien Ngoy, Stephen Ireland, Jakob Haugaard and Ryan Shawcross have all yet to make the squad this season for Stoke, with Bruno Martins Indi the only fresh absentee who missed Potters' last fixture against Southampton, and is set to miss out here, too.

Conclusion and Betting Prediction:

The Potters sit in thirteenth with 8 points on their score (W2 D2 L3) travelling to Manchester these weekends. But even though City lack the presence of Mendy, Kompany and Agüero, Mark Hughes' visiting team will enter the game carrying the underdog status with nearly no edge they can argue against the unbeaten hosts.

Even a draw seems to be a task Stoke are set to fail given how strong City have looked, and their strength in squad depth, since summer reinforcement to their ranks. Pretty obviously, we are backing the home side to edge out their opponents, keeping a clean sheet in the process.
