Sports Mole previews Stoke City's clash against Manchester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday.
Stoke City host Manchester City in the FA Cup on Saturday looking for a place in the fifth round.
Stoke reached this tie after being taken to extra time in a replay by Crystal Palace, although they eventually went through 4-1.
City, on the other hand, brushed aside Watford 3-0 at the first time of asking.
For Stoke, Andy Wilkinson is still a doubt so Dean Whitehead could continue to deputise at right-back.
Roberto Mancini's first-choice right-back Aleksandar Kolarov is doubtful with an ankle sprain, while both Kolo Toure and Yaya Toure are on Africa Cup of Nations duty.
Possible starting lineups
Stoke: Begovic; Whitehead, Huth, Shawcross, Cameron; Ehterington, Whelan, N'Zonzi, Adam; Walters, Crouch
City: Hart; Nastasic, Kompany, Lescott; Clichy; Barry, Garcia; Milner, Tevez, Silva; Dzeko
