With City not playing again until March 31 following this trip to the Potteries it's nearly certain that we'll see Guardiola name a full strength side to face Stoke. Over the weekend, United beat Liverpool meaning an essential elimination of the reds from the title run.

"I understand for the fans, OK, but the important thing is to be champions".

'Everybody in the blue side of Manchester knows it's a once in a lifetime opportunity (to win the title against United) but steady, it won't be handed to us, ' Kompany said.

Consider also Stoke's awful recent record against the big boys, and the fact that they've conceded an average of 4.5 goals per game in their last six such matches, then it's impossible not to suggest an away win, even at odds of [1.25].

There will be no 200th goal for Manchester City's great centre-forward but Stoke will be wary of coming up against Jesus again after his sensational, slippery performance back in October when he scored twice.

"He controlled the tempo ideal", Guardiola said.

Five minutes after the interval, City made the game safe when Jesus's long cross found Silva and Silva brilliantly floated the ball over Butland.

"I don't know, but when I play football I forget, I forget everything", he said.

The Manchester City midfielder is set to return for tonight's Premier League match at Stoke, having missed last Wednesday's Champions League match against Basel to visit his family in his native Spain.

"Of course he knows he has to train because you can not play good if you don't train for a long time so he trains on his own in Valencia when he goes there".

"Of course, he knows he has to train because you can not play well if you don't train for a long time". This game was never going to define our season.

Two of City's rare slip-ups this season have come on Monday nights as hopes of an unprecedented quadruple were ended by a shock FA Cup defeat at third-tier Wigan last month, while Everton escaped with a 1-1 draw from the Etihad Stadium back in August.

"I have bad experiences playing games on Mondays".

City were without top scorer Sergio Aguero but his absence mattered little as they barely needed to get out of second gear against the relegation-threatened Potters. "It gives us perspective and brings a moment of joy into our lives".
