Manchester City v Stoke City Betting Tips Explained


Manchester City kept their slim title challenge alive and kept the pressure on second-placed Tottenham Hotspur with a 2-0 win at Sunderland on Sunday afternoon, extending their winning run in the Premier League to four games. However, they are still a long way behind Chelsea in the title race and that means they simply have to keep winning matches, but manager Pep Guardiola believes his side have given themselves too big of a mountain to climb.

“It's a pity that the distance between [Manchester City and] Chelsea is so big,” Guardiola told reporters. “We are there behind, of course, Chelsea because they are almost unstoppable. I feel we are playing quite well and that's why we are getting results, but now we are in a position when you arrive in March and April, every game if you win, you stay; if you lose, you are out.”

Wednesday’s match against Stoke City is a must-win game for City and even if the title is out of their reach, this is their game-in-hand on Tottenham Hotspur and they will go second in the Premier League table with a victory over the visiting Potters. But will they get the win? These two teams have already met once this season and City stormed to a 4-1 success at the bet365 Stadium. In fact, their recent record against Stoke has been strong with three wins in their last four meetings.

City go into this match full of confidence thanks to a nine-match unbeaten run in all competitions, while Stoke City have been a mixed bag over the past month or two. They have enjoyed a decent sequence of results at home, but their form on the road has been horrendous with five defeats in their last six league games away from home. That sole victory came against rock-bottom Sunderland!

Simply put, there is no way I can go against Manchester City claiming all three points here and they should also record a clean sheet too. For all the talk about their issues at the back, Guardiola’s side have managed three clean sheets in their last four Premier League outings and Stoke have failed to find the back of the net in each of their last two away games. In fact, not many top-flight sides have scored less goals that the Potters on their travels.

And while I expect City to record a clean sheet at one end, I am backing Sergio Aguero to find the back of the net at the other. The Argentinian striker has failed to find the back of the net in his last three appearances, but it is only a matter of time before he is back on the goal trail and this could be the perfect opportunity. Aguero has scored five goals in his last three games against Stoke City and he could make it six goals in four encounters on Wednesday night.
