Footymad preview History of the Manchester City v Stoke City fixture

Manchester City prepare to entertain Stoke City at City of Manchester Stadium on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Sky Blues are clearly on top, having won 29 and lost only 7 of the 48 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at City of Manchester Stadium was just last season, in February 2010, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a F.A. Cup match.
