    Man City have won all five Barclays Premier League home games versus Stoke without conceding a single goal, with four of the matches ending 3-0.

    Stoke have failed to score in six of their last 11 league games against Man City and just one goal in each of the other five.

    Sergio Aguero has scored three goals against Stoke in two appearances against the Potters at the Etihad Stadium.

    There have been 10 instances of a Stoke player making an error leading to an opposition goal this season; more often than any other team.

    Yaya Toure has scored with seven of his eight attempts from a dead ball situations this season – 3/3 penalties, 4/5 direct free-kicks.

    Overall, Toure has scored 12 goals from just 16 shots on target in the top-flight this term.

    Manchester City have not lost back to back Premier League home games since December 2008.

    Since the start of their title winning season in 2011-12, Manchester City have conceded only four goals in the opening 15 minutes of Premier League games.

    Stoke City have averaged 385 passes per game in the PL this season; at least 62 more per game than in any season under Tony Pulis. They have also completed a higher proportion of their passes (76.3%).
