The STK VS MCI Clash:
In the upcoming fixture of Premier League, Stoke City will be playing host to the runaway leaders and champions-Elect Manchester City at bet365 Stadium. Both the teams have different sets of ambitions as far as the remaining season is concerned. Stoke are 19th in the table and are in need of a win in this match. Their direct rival for the relegation fight have dropped points during the weekend, so it’s a golden opportunity for the hosts to take their destiny in their own hands as a win will see them climb out of the danger zone.
Manchester City are almost on the threshold of winning their 3rd Premier League title. It’s just a question of when as Pep Guardiola only needs four wins in his next 9 games to clinch the ultimate glory. Not a big task for the Manchester City’s mercenaries.

Manchester City are the entertainers and are the hot-favorite in this match. But Stoke City are fighting for their lives and that makes them a formidable opposition. Also, everybody knows about the cold and the windy night in Stoke and how it plays into the hosts’ hands. So City will definitely not be cruising in this match.
