PREM: Man City v Stoke preview

Man City v Stoke preview

Manchester City have no fresh injury concerns ahead of Stoke City’s visit to the Etihad Stadium.

City, who are 11 points behind leaders Chelsea but have played a game less, can narrow the gap again with victory against a Stoke side who have been in inconsistent form of late.

Former City boss Mark Hughes has led his side to two wins, two draws and two defeats in their last six, and lost the reverse fixture 4-1 in August at the Bet365 Stadium.

Guardiola's City still have strong title aspirations, having won their last four Premier League games.

Other than long-term absentees Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus, Guardiola has a full team to pick from for Wednesday's clash, including defender Vincent Kompany.

Stoke winger Xherdan Shaqiri is available after five games out due to a calf problem.

Bruno Martins Indi (knee) is a major doubt, and Marko Arnautovic (illness) and Glen Johnson (shoulder) could miss out as well.

Wilfried Bony is ineligible as he is on loan from City, while it remains to be seen whether Giannelli Imbula - who, like Bony, failed to make the 18 last time out despite being available - is involved this time.
