Manchester City’s Top 3 Quest Continues

Sergio Aguero Manchester City Premier League

Manchester City will look to continue to put pressure on Arsenal for the third spot in the Premier League table with a win over visiting Stoke Saturday. The Citizens dropped points in their visit to Newcastle midweek and will look for a stronger performance against the struggling Potters.

Shark Bites
  • Stoke has allowed at least two goals in its last three games.
  • Stoke’s LB Erik Pieters will miss the game due to suspension.
  • Stoke won the reverse fixture 2-0 back on December 5.

Online shop Bet365 is presently offering Manchester City at -333 in moneyline markets while Stoke comes in at +1000 and the Draw is +500. As far as the total is concerned, OVER 2.5 goals is -163 while UNDER 2.5 goals is currently +125.

Man City enters the weekend fixtures in fourth place in the league table with 61 points – two points behind Arsenal. Fourth place in the Premier League table earns a birth to Champions League qualifiers while third place goes straight to the group stage so there is much to play for as the two, plus Manchester United, jockey for positioning.

City had a three-match winning streak snapped with the draw in Newcastle which is the two-point difference between third and fourth. The caveat is that City still has Champions League to think of as they host Real Madrid in the semifinal round Tuesday.

Stoke, a side probably deserving a top-10 place at the conclusion of the season, has struggled of late as the Potters have lost two-straight entering the weekend. They were thoroughly outplayed by Tottenham Hotspur in a 4-0 thrashing at the Brittania Stadium Monday.
