Our in-depth algorithm, known as the Premier League predictor has given the EPL predictions for the match Man City vs Stoke City. The predictions are based on several factors but first, let us take a look at the match preview.
The Premier League predictor has given Man City a good rating. Man City have made a stunning start to the Premier League. They currently sit on the 1st spot in the Premeir League table with 19 points in 7 matches so far. They have been nearly flawless and their players have been sublime.
Man City are coming into this fixture with a 0-1 win against Chelsea away from home. Their fantastic victory against Chelsea, as well as a stunning display of form in the previous matches indicate only that they will be hitting Stoke with full throttle.
For Man City, Aguero is a doubt for this fixture after picking up an injury. Gabriel Jesus remains the main threat in front of goal as he has been in superb form for City. Meanwhile David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne have been sensational too. Defensively, City has been very organized and compact.
Lastly, City are playing this fixture at their home ground and hence, the job for Stoke is even more challenging.
On the other hand, the Premier League predictor has given Stoke City a low rating. Stoke have been less than impressive in their season so far. They currently sit on the 13th spot with 8 points in 7 fixtures. Despite some good results, Stoke continue to remain sub-par as they have dropped points where they could easily have tilted the result in their fixture with good concentration and keeping the focus for entire 90 min.
Stoke are coming into this fixture with 2-1 win against Southampton at their home ground. However, this fixture is entirely different as Man City are arguably the most devastating team in the Premier League currently.
For Stoke, Berahino and Shaqiri will be the key players. Both of them have a good experience of how to face top oppositions and if Stoke can utilize them in the right way, they do have a chance of getting something from this fixture.
