Man City have won five of the last six meetings with Stoke. The Citizens are unbeaten in 20 competitive matches at Eastlands since April 2009, winning 17 of these. Carlos Tevez has scored six goals in his last four appearances at home for City.
However, Stoke are unbeaten in seven games in 2010, and while I expect that run to come to an end on Saturday, it won’t be given up without a fight. A close result beckons.
