Stoke City play host to table-toppers Manchester City at the Bet365 Stadium on Monday night.
The Staffordshire outfit have played out plenty of draws of late, and this sees them stranded in the relegation positions. Paul Lambert’s side are still one point and a superior goal difference adrift of safety. Meanwhile, City are cruising towards their third Premier League title, and they require three straight victories to clinch the crown.
Stoke City FC vs Manchester City FC – Betting Tips for the game
Stoke played out a 0-0 stalemate against relegation candidates Southampton in their previous outing. The Potters have now gone winless in the last five appearances with four draws and one defeat.
City, on the other hand, picked up a third straight league triumph. Pep Guardiola’s side dominated the proceedings against Chelsea as they secured a comfortable 1-0 victory. They, however, suffered a rare 2-1 defeat to Basel in the Champions League round of 16 on Wednesday night, but still progressed with a 5-2 aggregate scoreline.
The previous meeting between the teams was at the Etihad Stadium, where City dominated the proceedings with a thumping 7-2 win. The last outing at the Bet365 Stadium saw the visitors pick up a 4-1 win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a City win.

Stoke City FC vs Manchester City FC – Match odds
Stoke are offered winning odds of 13.00, but they are unlikely to witness this result despite the home advantage. City had experienced a run of three away games without a win in the Premier League, but this was put aside with a convincing 3-0 triumph over Arsenal last week. With this mind, they should have the advantage over the Potters, who have conceded 15 goals in the last four meetings against their opponents. Our preview is to go for a City win at 1.25 with Williamhills.
