Betting Tip: Draw @ 11/4 with bet365

Manchester City are top of the Premier League although fifteen points from their opening five games have been followed by a return of fourteen in the next nine.

It means that the Citizens only lead the way on goal difference, with Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool queuing up to challenge Manuel Pellegrini’s men. Even Leicester City could have a say in the title this term.

Saturday’s trip to the Britannia Stadium looks fraught with danger. Sergio Aguero’s latest injury is a heel one and it looks as though the Argentine will be resting and recovering instead of a potentially physical clash against the Potters.

Joe Hart should be back in the team although Vincent Kompany is precisely the sort of defender you want against a Stoke side that made short work of a Sheffield Wednesday side looking to cause an upset on Tuesday night.

Mark Hughes’ team have slipped up a few times at the Brit this season, although the manager has lots of attacking weapons at his disposal, Ryan Shawcross back from suspension and possibly the best keeper in the league in Jack Butland.

Stoke’s 2-0 reverse at Sunderland last weekend was mainly down to Shawcross’ unfortunate sending off, with Xherdan Shaqiri and Bojan likely to help the Potters to at least a point and potentially three.
