Fresh from a narrow victory at Chelsea, the Citizens will be confident when they take on the Potters

Manchester City host Stoke City at the Ethiad Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola’s men were able to claim a well-earned 1-0 win at Chelsea a fortnight ago courtesy of old Blue Kevin de Bruyne. The result consolidated City’s place at the top of the log and are (1.14) to get another win in the bag with LionsBet.

The Potters did well to see off Southampton 2-1 last time out. Mark Hughes’ men are currently hanging in 13th place and have been known to be giant killers but odds of (20.00) suggest it’s going to be difficult to cause an upset.

Gabriel Jesus takes the lead of the City frontline from Sergio Aguero as the Argentine remains out injured with a fractured rib.

Raheem Sterling has scored five goals in his last five league outings. The pacey Englishman is tipped to score anytime at odds of (1.55).
