Manchester City host Stoke at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday (Watch live online, 10am ET via NBC Sports Live Extra) with the Citizens hoping to overcome their disappointing midweek defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League.
This is a match up between the team with the best home record, City, and the team with the worst away record, Stoke.
