Match Highlights View More Below

City left the Britannia Stadium a shade lucky to have drawn 0-0 after a largely flat display against Stoke.

The hosts had a number of excellent chances to break the deadlock, but a mixture of Joe Hart brilliance and poor finishing ensured this fixture ended in a fifth consecutive draw.

What will have worried Manuel Pellegrini more was the lack of creativity his side showed on the day with Asmir Begovic not really called into action during the entire 90 minutes.

The Blues are a work in progress, clearly, though the globe-trotting nature of an international break for this star-studded City squad is perhaps the real culprit for the lack of sparkle, fatigue and misplaced passes that blighted the visitors’ play after the break.
