Man City welcome back key duo for Stoke clash

Premier League leaders Manchester City this evening welcome a pair of key players back to their starting XI to take on Stoke City.
The two sides are set to go head to head at the Bet365 Stadium from 8pm, with hosts Stoke coming into proceedings on the back of 3 consecutive Premier League draws, versus Brighton, Leicester and Southampton.
Manchester City, meanwhile, fell to a surprise Champions League defeat at home to Basel last Wednesday night, though the Citizens’ 4-0 first-leg result meant that they still progressed to the competition’s quarter-finals with ease.
The Sky Blues’ last league outing, on the other hand, saw a dominant performance result in a comfortable 1-0 win over Chelsea.
The starting lineups of both sides were announced a short time ago, with Stoke boss Paul Lambert making just one change, as Jese Rodriguez steps in for the injured Mame Biram Diouf:

 One change for the Potters against @ManCity this evening as @JeseRodriguez10 replaces @MameDiouf99. STARTING XI: Butland; Bauer, Zouma, M. Indi, Stafylidis; Badou, Cameron, Allen; Shaqiri, Jese, Choupo-Moting.#SCFC
