Stoke City vs Manchester City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – bet365 Stadium

Date: 12th March 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Stoke City head into this game in relegation trouble as they are 19th in the Premier League table.

However, they are one point away from safety and a good result here would not only boost their survival hopes, but it would also help boost their morale as they face other opponents.

They face Everton, Arsenal and Tottenham in their next couple of matches, so this is a defining moment for them.

They come into this game off the back of 3 consecutive draws and Paul Lambert should set them up not to lose here again.

Manchester City continue their march towards the league title with a visit to Stoke City.

Pep Guardiola’s men have more than a 15 points advantage over 2nd placed Manchester United and are set to win the league title with a win over their rivals in a couple of weeks time, but they have to survive the Potters here first.

They lost their last 2 Cup games against Wigan and Basel, but they have remain almost unbeatable in the league with 4 wins from their last five against opponents like Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City.

City have struggled away from home this year, winning only one of their last 3 away games including a 4-3 loss at Liverpool and a 1-1 draw at Burnley.
