Forget about doing it on a cold rainy night in Stoke. City could not do it on a normal day at Stoke. Another shocker in the premier league as City succumbs to a 2-0 defeat away from home at a crucial time of the season.
The game was almost wrapped up by Stoke in the first 15 minutes courtesy of some outstanding play by Xherdan Shaqiri. Providing both the assists for goals by Marko Arnautovic in 7th and 15th minute respectively.
You have got to give it to Stoke who have massively changed their style of play and now that are more than just a side who just wrestle around to get three points.
City on the other hand were disappointing. This match held huge importance in title contendership and they gave it away easily. The absence of star man Sergio Aguero proves costly to City again.
City sit third at the table with 29 points while Stoke are at 10th spot with 22 points.
