City’s noisy neighbours Manchester United will be involved in FA Cup action this weekend when they take on Everton at Wembley Stadium on Saturday and with this gives them an opportunity to build a five point lead on the Red Devils.

City’s charge to third place was momentarily slowed down on Tuesday after being held to a 1-1 tie by Newcastle United.

City cannot afford to make the same mistake against Stoke and must go all out for maximum points.

Midfielder, Samir Nasri who missed Tuesday’s match with a muscle injury remains doubtful though Raheem Sterling is expected to make it back to the starting line-up.

Stoke have been relatively successful against City in the past and this could inspire them to victory.

The Potters beat City at home last season. It was the first time ever and it could count on Saturday.

The Magpies may feel more confident after holding City on Tuesday but the Reds are even more inspired after thrashing Everton 4-0.
