Man City

Stoke City and Manchester City face at Britannia Stadium, in a match for the 15th round of the Premier League. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the away team, since they have a record of 2 wins and 3 draws in the last 5 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 11‑02‑2015, in a match for the Premier League, Manchester City won by (1‑4). The goals of the match were scored by P. Crouch (38' ), for Stoke City, and by S. Agüero (33' and 70' ), J. Milner (55' ) and S. Nasri (76' ), for Manchester City.

Analysis of Stoke City

The home team is currently in the 12th position of the league, with 19 points won, after 5 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Southampton, by (0‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Sunderland, by (2‑0). In their last match, for the League Cup, they got a home win against Sheffield Wednesday by (2‑0). In the last 6 home league matches Stoke City has a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, so they have won 7 points out of 18 possible. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 14 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

Stoke come motivated to this match after a 2-0 win at home, against Sheffield, to the League Cup. Joselu and Shay Given won't play for still being injured. 
In spite of going through a good moment, Stoke are slight aggressive on the pitch, and present some difficulties, mainly, to finish the opportunities that they create and also the air play. 
So, against a strong opponent on the air play, their tactical approaches will be very important. 

Confirmed Lineup: J. Butland, R. Shawcross, G. Johnson, P. Wollscheid, E. Pieters, G. Cameron, I. Afellay, X. Shaqiri, G. Whelan, Bojan, M. Arnautović.
Coach: M. Hughes.

Analysis of Manchester City

The away team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 29 points won, after 9 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Liverpool, by (1‑4). In the last match, they won in a home match against Southampton, by (3‑1). In their last match, for the League Cup, they got a home win against Hull City by (4‑1). Their last away match was for the UEFA Champions League and ended in a loss by (1‑0) against Juventus. In the last 6 away league matches Manchester City has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 11 points out of 18 possible. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 6 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition.

Manchester City are going through a bad moment. Zabaleta, Mangala, Kompany, Hart and Nasri are in doubt to this match, by injury. 
The visiting team like to control the match in the opponent's midfield, and they play, many times, to unbalance their opponent. Nonetheless, Manchester is also excellent in the counterattack, due to the players. 
However, the team have showed some defensive weaknesses, conceding many goals to the "enemy".

Confirmed Lineup: J. Hart, N. Otamendi, B. Sagna, M. Demichelis, A. Kolarov, David Silva, K. De Bruyne, R. Sterling, Fernando, Fernandinho, W. Bony.
Coach: M. Pellegrini.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match is that Manchester City will win. Despite Stoke City play in front of their fans and to record interesting results in the last matches, they will match a stronger opponent, that comes motivated after have scored 7 goals in 2 matches. 
So, it's foreseen that the visiting team's quality will be seen, and that they'll show all their favouritism.
