Stoke City vs Manchester City 5 Dec 2015: EPL Preview and Predictions
5 November 2015/0945
Manchester City have regained their spot at the top of the EPL ladder and they will want to keep that positon as they travel to Stoke this weekend. This game is between two teams on opposite sides of the table but it might be a little tighter than on paper.
Manchester City come into this match after winning midweek against Hull City in the Capital One Cup. This team is filled with superstars and winning should be a second nature to them. That being said this side has been a little inconsistent at times and they will want to get over that and winning at Stoke will be a perfect chance for them to build some consistency. The Britannia Stadium is a hard place to play as a visiting side but I think that City will be up to the task.

Stoke City will go into this game knowing that they are playing a team that is much better than them. This side is coming off a loss against Sunderland and will want to get over that defeat by performing well at home this weekend. Stoke have an awesome atmosphere at home and they will hope that the home crowd can help them in playing well against the league leaders.
Manchester City are massive favorites going into this match so the value is betting on the handicap which is set at 1 goal. I think this is very generous considering how good Manchester City are going forward so there the bet I am going to be making is Manchester City -1. In addition to this, City have found hard to keep clean sheets in their last few outing so I think that Stoke may be able to score in this match. That is why I think that being on both teams to score is also a profitable play.
