Stoke vs Man City Odds: Can City pick up a win against red-hot Stoke?

Stoke are placed at 9/2 odds of defeating Man City as last season’s Premier League runners up come to the impenetrable fortress that is the Britannia Stadium.

Stoke are a team that have very much been a side who have performed well at home having beaten almost every top side in the country there over the past couple of seasons.

The Potters have enjoyed a great start to the season having won two of their first 3 games placing them 5th in the table.

Saturday’s game will be met with some anticipation from Potters’ fans as the club are likely to hand controversial Austrian striker Marko Arnautovic his first start for the club.

He will be another new face to the Stoke line-up after other summer signings such as Erik Pieters have already made their way into the first team line-up.

Having not being disrupted too much over the international break, the team will look largely unchanged to the sides that have defeated Crystal Palace and West Ham in the past two weeks with club veterans Asmir Begovic and Robert Huth slotting in alongside the newcomers.

They will be set to take on a Man City side that are desperate to prove themselves away from home after suffering a devastating loss to Cardiff in their previous trip on the road.

One problem that City will still be looking to fix is finding a fit centre back after the club were dealt another blow with new signing martin Demichelis out for 6 weeks.

Despite only joining from Atletico Madrid at the end of the transfer window, Demichelis picked up a knee injury during a training session over the international break.

He will join club captain Vincent Kompany as definite absentees from the game although Micah Richards is still a doubt after just returning from a torn hamstring.

There are no problems for the team upfront though with the majority of their key players returning injury free from the international break including Jesus Navas who has drawn the plaudits since making the move from Sevilla earlier this summer.

Both teams having been in strong form since the start of the season and City will be determined to overcome their mishaps away from home even if their next games is at one of the toughest stadiums to visit within the entire Premier League.
