Manchester City failed to beat Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, and now trail Chelsea by 10 points in the Premier League table. The Citizens could not turn their domination into goals, and a disappointing draw practically ends City's title chase.
The first half was very tough for City, who faced a very defensive and organized Stoke side, who put ten men behind the ball and constantly stopped the game with fouls. The visitors also had two dangerous chances on the counter, and kept City from doing anything really threatening in the first period.
At halftime, City needed better football and goals to walk away with a win.
The second half was just as boring as the first, and City couldn't find the game-winning goal despite trying hard to attack. In the end, a bitterly disappointing result for the Citizens, and the Premier League is probably over.
