new gersy/ Manchester City vs Stoke: Premier League



Manchester City will look to maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League table as they host Stoke City.

Victory over Chelsea ahead of the international break solidifed their place as title favourites, and the two-week hiatus from domestic action has allowed some of their star names to further recover from injury.

Manchester City must be on their guard as they return to Premier League action against Stoke on Saturday.




Liverpool host Manchester United in Saturday's early kick-off, but City will regain top spot if they match the Red Devils' Anfield result.

Man City secured a superb 1-0 away win at champions Chelsea before the international break to help Pep Guardiola earn the manager of the month award, but Stoke have proved tricky customers with a win against Arsenal and a 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Mark Hughes' Potters remain an enigma due to their inconsistent form, but the former City manager will be hoping to spring a shock on Pep Guardiola at Etihad Stadium despite City's attacking might.

Start time

Man City host Stoke at Etihad Stadium with kick-off scheduled for 3pm on Saturday, October 14.

TV and live online coverage

The match will be not be televised or shown live online in the UK.

Team News 

Manchester City 

Sergio Aguero has returned to training after suffering a broken rib in a car accident ahead of the Chelsea match and may come into contention.

Benjamin Mendy will definitely miss out after undergoing knee ligament surgery, but Fabian Delph may have shaken off the knock that saw him withdraw from the latest England squad.




Vincent Kompany could also return to the matchday squad having been out for over a month with a calf injury, though he did not feature for Belgium in either of their recent World Cup qualifiers.

Ilkay Gundogan could also come into contention for a start having come off the bench in the closing stages of the win over Chelsea.

Stoke City 

Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross continues to miss out with a back injury that has kept him on the sidelines since the end of August.

Fellow defenders Bruno Martins Indi and Geoff Cameron are also fitness doubts, with the latter not set to return to the club from international duty with the USA until Friday.

Joe Allen, meanwhile, had to be replaced in the first half of Wales's defeat to Republic of Ireland with concussion and may be forced to sit out on Saturday.

Predicted line-ups

Man City starting XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Danilo, Gundogan, Fernandinho, Silva, Sterling, Jesus, Sane
