Match Highlights View More Below

City suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to Stoke after a frustrating afternoon at the Etihad Stadium.

The visitors repelled constant pressure from the champions and stole the points with a goal on the break after 57 minutes with Mame Diouf racing more than 60 yards to stun the home support and give the Potters their first top-flight win at City since 1980.

On the back of tricky encounters with Newcastle and Liverpool, City were looking to continue their fine start to the season against a Stoke side who had lost their last six games at the Etihad Stadium.

In fact, the Potters arrived having never managed to score a goal in this fixture since the move from Maine Road in 2003, so with recent history in mind, this would probably have been a fixture Manuel Pellegrini would have chosen if he could.
