Roberto Mancini might struggle to field a fully-fit 11 for City’s mid-week game with Stoke at the Britannia. With Tevez away for family reasons, Bellamy and Kompany rated doubtful and Ireland, Petrov & SWP all struggling with knocks; Mancini may be forced to play the not fully-fit Santa Cruz. However, I anticipate Shauny to be fit enough to compete as he managed to play through half the game with an injury so it can`t be that bad.

Here is the team that I think Mancini will opt for:

City Line-Up:

(4-3-3)

1) Given

2) Richards – 28) Toure (c) – 19) Lescott – 3) Bridge

34) de Jong – 24) Vieira – 18) Barry

8) SWP – 25) Adebayor – 11) A Johnson


And here is the team that I think Tony Pulis will go with:

Stoke Line-Up:

(4-4-2)

29) Sorensen

4) Huth – 25) Faye (c) – 17)Shawcross – 3) Higginbotham

24) Delap – 18) Whitehead – 15) Diao – 20) Tuncay

10) Fuller – 11) Sidibe

What team do you think Roberto will go with?
