Following wins over Southampton and Hull, City look to continue winning ways against a Stoke currently lying in 12th. A difficult spot to play over the years, the Britannia's last home league match was a 1-0 victory over Chelsea, so City cannot afford to slouch in this one. Last year, City ran riot with a hugely impressive 4-1 win in this fixture.

Pellegrini has opted for the Fern bros in midfield with Delph on the bench, and Joe Hart returns to the XI. Otherwise, things are about as expected.
