PREM STOKE IN A MESS

STOKE IN A MESS

12th March 2018

Manchester City travel to the BET365 Stadium tonight and how times have changed.

Four seasons ago Stoke were as short as 15/8 for this fixture but can be backed tonight at 14/1 - City are 1/4 to get yet another win in the relentless march for the title.

In the good old days, Stoke could be relied on to cause embarassment to top six sides at home - but not these days. Stoke are short on quality, and have conceded far too many goals for comfort.

Defeat tonight- which looks certain will cement them in second bottom position. The only good thing for Lambert is this is really a free hit as no one expects a positive result.

At least the games per game has come down under Lambert and City may have to be patient. Stoke last won the fixture in 2015 and have only lost twice since they reached the top flight.

Stoke fans will take the price but not many others will.
