Stoke City Vs Manchester City: Preview

Well no signings completed before 12, means we won't be seeing any more new faces in tomorrows away battle at Stoke.

I expect the team to pretty similar lineup, but we are sweating on the fitness of Pablo Zabaleta who went off with cramp during our win on Wednesday. Swp is also a doubt after being brutality taken out by Guiterrez, If he misses out, it could see Bellamy move right and one of our young strikers taking the lone position.

An obvious aim for Hughes new and improved side is to put an end to our awful away form. We dealt with Stoke very easily early on this season and should go on and win tomorrow, considering their very poor form. They are a big solid side,but with a more solid defence and midfield, i feel much more confident of going into the game and winning. If we want to to have a decent league table finish this season, we need to start a good run and beat the likes of Stoke and Boro.

No transfers. Mark Hughes has had another Roque Santa Cruz bid turned down. I can only see this as a blessing. I'm not sure why he is so determined to buy one player, who simply isn't that good. We await a deal from Shay Given to be confirmed. I hope we get it over and done with quickly.

predict another City win!
