Johnny On The Spot: City go marching on. 6 consecutive wins since Boxing Day, 15 goals scored, 3 conceded at Norwich and 5 clean sheets. The Blues are really building up a head of steam now having slain another unwanted record in finally outmuscling Stoke in their own part deserted back garden...Stoke were appalling and there can be no excuses for the message sent from a 19,000 home attendance which was bolstered by City's sold out 4,500 travelling allocation and a few hundred more besides. Who in their right mind would pay to watch that football team week in, week out...? Pablo Zabaleta's by now trademark goal represented justice for the 5,000 who had witnessed Glenn Whelan's shockingly unpunished second half two footed stamp on Javi Garcia. The Spaniard had a terrific game. How the officials missed it was beyond belief...City should have been out of sight by half time and it was clear that Tony Pulis then sent his men out to rough City up the way they have done repeatedly at home for years, but Roberto Mancini's champions have wised up to Stoke's approach with the increased frequency of cup contests and are no longer bullied into submission...This was a tremendous result ahead of a tricky trip to London and Queen's Park Rangers inside 72 hours. On behalf of everyone connected with Manchester City, thank God we don't have to face Stoke again this season. Stats Courtesy BBC Sport

Well in Zaba. That's another monkey off our back. Javi Garcia really coming into his own now.

A disappointing crowd and a disappointing match, Manchester City having to find a way through a packed Stoke flat back 8, but in the end it was a good win and a decent team goal with a strikers finish from stand in Skipper Zabaletta. The stats speak for themselves, ahead in all areas except fouls and cards. A truly professional job done at a difficult ground to go to and get a result

"On behalf of everyone connected with Manchester City, thank God we don't have to face Stoke again this season." - made me laugh because it's so true, we've played them three times in three of the last four seasons. And it's painful to watch us try and get through a thuggish wall of negativity. Their fans would throw out the money card but Swansea and others prove little money can buy you a good footballing team.

Funny, but I can't remember a single one of Stoke's shots on target.
