2017-2018 Premier League Prediction: Stoke City vs Manchester City
Match Venue: BET365 Stadium
Match Date: 13 March 2018 | 4:00AM (Asia GMT+8)
12BET (Football Betting Tips) This battle will definitely be one of the toughest to conquer for the relegated team, Stoke City. Although the Potters were unbeaten in the last three matches, the club has relatively no significant edge (other than the home turf advantage) as they welcome Manchester City on Tuesday.

Paul Lambert’s Stoke City have only won six matches in the Premier League this season. The club will aim to avoid any potential pit-falls in the remaining matches, but that would be too difficult to do as they host EPL front runners—Manchester City.
In this match the Potters are expected to be without star player Mame Diouf due to a shoulder injury. Along with him is midfielder Stephen Ireland who picked up calf injury.
However, Defender Kevin Wimmer and striker Saido Berahino could possibly make a return in time for the match.
Manchester City suffered match loss last week against FC Basel and apparently manager Pep Guardiola is not happy about it. He and his squad will demand for retribution.
As City travel to BET365 Stadium, the club’s play maker David Silva is coming back in the Premier League action after missing out in the Champions League battle against Basel. But on the contrary, play maker Sergio Aguero will not feature here after sustaining knee injury. But despite Aguero’s absence, it will not really have a negative impact to Manchester City.
Stoke City are in for another disappointing match result. They will lack confidence and most probably ran out of energy to win this challenging battle. Hence, it’s a win match for Manchester City (Sign Up to get the most comprehensive match preview and result.)
