Stoke City v Manchester City Betting: Mancini's men to prove too strong for Potters

A replay of the 2011 FA Cup final will ignite a mouth-watering set of fourth round ties of the world’s greatest club competition on Saturday, as Stoke City host Manchester City in the lunchtime kick-off, which is live on ITV1 at 12:45pm.

The Potters needed extra time to get past Crystal Palace in the third round and it gets no easier for Tony Pulis’ men as they welcome a City side who have won five on the spin and have kept four clean sheets in a row and that is why Paddy Power have installed Stoke as the 7/2 outsiders to venture into the next round.

A comfortable 3-0 win over Watford in the last round was duly followed up by impressive victories over Arsenal and Fulham in the Premier League and the Blues look to be in red-hot form heading to the Britannia Stadium and are currently available at 4/5 with Paddy Power to win the match, whilst the draw is on offer at 5/2 with the Dublin-based firm.

Stoke may be one of the toughest teams to beat on their home patch and they have managed to secure four 1-1 draws on the spin at the Britannia against City in their last four Premier League games, but Roberto Mancini’s side brushed them aside with aplomb on New Year’s Day with a comfortable 3-0 success and it’s tough to see them managing to bridge the chasm that was between them that day and so the 4/5 with Paddy Power is the safe bet for City to progress.

David Silva was instrumental in City’s 2-0 victory over Fulham last weekend with a brace of goals and the diminutive Spaniard could well spearhead the attacking flare for the visitors, with Yaya Toure away on African Cup of Nations duty with Ivory Coast, and Silva could be the value in the first goal scorer betting as the 15/2 about him notching first is decent value.

Sergio Aguero returned to the squad last weekend and came on as a second-half substitute in the win against Fulham and the Argentinean could team up with fellow countryman Carlos Tevez and they are both available at 9/2 in the latest betting with Paddy Power, whilst the most likely Stoke scorer could be Jon Walters, who is 8/1 to bag the first goal.

With four clean sheets on the spin, Stoke will struggle to breakdown a frugal City rearguard, but Paddy Power still believe the home side can bag themselves a goal and the 11/2 about a 1-1 draw is the favourite in the correct score market. However, Chelsea showed when trouncing the Potters 4-0 in the Premier League that they can be knocked out of their stride at home and City’s attacking flare could well be too strong for a streetwise Stoke defence and they could well get an early goal and sit on that lead and a 2-0 win is eye-catching at 7/1.

If Manchester City can get an early strike then they should be able to hold out for the rest of the game and so the 17/10 about City being in front at half-time and full-time offers some improved value, whilst the Score/Win Double of a Silva goal and an away win at 7/2 could well attract more interest in an intriguing contest.
