Stoke City vs Man City - Weds 24Th Feb 19:45 pm
Must win? I know some City fans who don't think so, they would prefer to go for fourth but I disagree with them. We should go for both!!!
This is going to be a tough game again for us tonight but we can win, Stoke are going to give us a bad time tonight and we will need to be more physical against them. I am not suggesting that we go out with the intent to play in a physical style but when we have to get stuck in we must do it.
As far as I am concerned if we show our class tonight we will win, the problem is we don't know what side will turn up. After playing better against Liverpool I am hoping that we will continue to build on that and turn it on against Stoke, I think we can do that and win.
Man City Team News:
Carlos Tevez is still not back from Argentina so will not play, Adam Johnson is cup tied and Patrick Vieira is suspended. Martin Petrov is expected to still be out with a knee injury and Kolo Toure and Roque Santa Cruz will undergo late fitness tests.
Stoke City Team News:
Matthew Etherington and Danny Higginbotham are expected to undergo late fitness tests and Abdoulaye Faye and Andy Wilkinson will miss out through suspension.
Possible Man City Line Up: Given, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Bridge, De Jong, Ireland, Barry, Wright-Phillips, Bellamy, Adebayor.
Possible Stoke City Line Up: Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Diao, Collins, Lawrence, Delap, Whelan, Sidibe, Fuller, Sanli.
My Prediction: Stoke City 1 - 2 Man City.
Worth A Bet: Lescott scores in a 2 - 1 City win.
