Premier League STOKE – MANCHESTER CITY
Shock of extremes this Monday night between the 19th and the leader of the Premier League. No benefit in terms of motivation
State of form
At the trouble since the beginning of the season, Stoke occupies a worrying 19th and penultimate place in the Premier League with 1 point behind the first non-relegation training. Over the past 6 days, the Potters have drawn 4 draws for 1 win and 1 loss. Last weekend, they brought a valuable point of their trip to Southampton (0-0).
The undisputed leader of the Premier League, Manchester City is 16 points ahead of their nearest rival and is on the right side to clinch the title at the end of the season. After conceding their only defeat in the league in Liverpool, the Citizens responded well by lining up the last 6 games without defeat (5 wins and 1 draw). Last weekend, they dominated, at home, Chelsea (1-0). Manchester City advantage on the form
Headcount for STOKE – MANCHESTER CITY
Substitute goalkeeper Lee Grant and veteran Stephen Ireland were joined by Mame Biram Diouf (second-best scorer) on the side of Stoke City. The team has the worst defense in the league with 54 goals conceded.
For Manchester City, Pep Guardiola is deprived of the French left-back Mendy, whose recovery is well managed by Guardiola, and his top scorer Sergio Aguero. On the other hand, the important Delph and Sterling could make their return in the group, and the indispensable Fernandinho is him back.
Prediction STOKE – MANCHESTER CITY
Manchester City should logically dominate the relegated Stoke on Monday and consolidate his lead at the top of the standings. Victory Manchester City
