Can Manchester City break their winless streak away to Stoke?
Manchester City face a potentially tough trip to the Potteries to take on Stoke this weekend but look a great bet at 1.73 withbet365 and Paddy Power to come away with all three points.
They have failed to win on any of their last five visits, and are Roberto Mancini is likely to make changes to the staring XI given that they travel to Real Madrid on Tuesday for a vital Champions League game.
However it’s worth noting that they won every game proceeding a Champions League tie last season and given the strength in depth of the squad they should prove too strong for their opponents.
Tony Pulis’ side have drawn every game this season and lack any real cutting edge up front, and will almost certainly have to score twice to win this.
I can’t see how they can possibly do that, especially as City have also won eight and lost none of their last nine games on the road.
Carlos Tevez has scored four goals in six Premier League games against the Potters, so is of obvious interest at a top priced 5.5 with Paddy Power to net the opener.
Given that City have conceded in every game so far this season, I can see Stoke nicking one but ultimately not being strong enough to prevent the title holders from emerging victorious.
For that reason I think City are worth a punt to win this 2-1 or 3-1 at 8.5 and 15 respectively with bet365.
