Tip Manchester City - Stoke
Manchester City are top of the table and still unbeaten in all competitions this season. They have been scoring plenty of goals but Sergio Aguero is likely to miss this game after his mishap in Amsterdam. City have plenty in reserve though with Jesus possibly up front and Sterling among the goals this season and already have seven players who have scored for them this season. Their last two home league games have both been won 5-0 A lot is written about their attack this season but their expensive defence has kept six clean sheets in the last seven games and that's a major reason they are such a force this season. Stoke City are 13th in the table with only seven goals in their seven league games. Away form has seen them get one point in three games with only two goals scored. They have just one win in their last 11 away Premier League games and this is going to be a long afternoon for them, especially if conceding an early goal. They did get a goalless draw here last season but the best bet here looks to be to go for the home side to win on a -1 handicap.
