STATS: Man City have scored 11 goals in three home games.
Only Chelsea (+21 in 2010/11) have had a better goal difference after seven matches of a PL season than Man City’s current +20.
ANALYSIS: Manchester City have looked like a team on a mission so far this season; beating teams easily and scoring with ease.
City are still unbeaten this term, and with their incredibly free flowing football, Stoke City may not be spared at the Etihad.
Mark Hughes’s Potters were thumped 4-0 by champions Chelsea two outings ago and a similar fate awaits them at the Etihad.
But expect a very cagey start to the game.
PREDICTION: MANCHESTER CITY WIN.
VENUE: ETIHAD STADIUM.
