City moved back to within three points of the Barclays Premier League summit with a narrow win over Stoke City.

After the en masse handwringing and the post-mortems carried out after the Barcelona defeat, it was back to the more straightforward and familiar domestic duties for the Blues.

In prospect was a rare Saturday 3pm kick-off against a familiar foe for fans to get their teeth into and an opportunity to build momentum for the Capital One Cup final in eight days.

That said, there was little humdrum about this encounter as City came up against an obdurate Stoke side who produced a spirited, hard-working performance to frustrate the home side for 69 minutes.
