Stoke Man City Odds : Punters pile on Carlos Tevez to fire Citizens to Premiership title at Britannia

Manchester City travel to Stoke for this Saturday’s late kick-off at the Britannia Stadium on the crest of a wave, having come from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1 in midweek, as punters pile on Carlos Tevez to score first at odds of 5/1 with Bet365.

Their defeat to Swansea at the weekend led many pundits to question whether they would be able to last the distance in the Premier League title race, as Manchester United leap-frogged them at the top of the table.

But their performance against an in form Chelsea side reminded everyone of what a quality side they still are.

Carlos Tevez made his long awaited return to first team action, and on this occasion there were no misunderstandings as he came of the bench to set up Samir Nasri’s late winner.

His neat flick into the path of the Frenchman’s run reminded everyone of what City have been missing for much of the season, and Roberto Mancini has urged him to play his part in the title run-in.

There were positive signs that he and fellow Argentine Sergio Aguero would be able to form the sort of strike partnership that would have many top European sides drooling.

Pundits and fans alike have suggested that if City are to win the Premier League this season, they will now have to win every game remaining, including one against Manchester United of all sides.

Stoke will be no pushovers though. Ever since they were promoted to the Premier League back in 2008, they have established themselves in the top division, based primarily on playing to their strengths and a good home record.

Their 1-1 draw away to Tottenham in midweek was proof that they are capable of giving any of the big sides a game. They nearly even won it, until Rafael van der Vaart scored a cruel equaliser in the 90th minute.

This will be the 86th league meetings between these two sides, with the two having already faced one another once this season at the Etihad. On that occasion, City ran out comfortable 3-0 winners, and they will be hoping for more of the same this time around.
