Stoke City condemned Manchester City to their 4th defeat of the season after putting in a swashbuckling display of attacking football at the Britannia stadium on Saturday.

City were missing the spine of their team (Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany) through injury and it showed as they were completely outplayed by an excellent Stoke side. Austrian winger Marko Arnautovic scored twice in the first 15 minutes of the match to send Stoke into the top half of the league table.

Arnautovic, along with Bojan and Shaqiri, tormented the Manchester City defence throughout the course of the match in a stellar display of attacking football. The defeat left City in 3rd position in the league – 3 points adrift of league leaders Leicester City.

Twiteratti wasted no time in heaping more misery on the Citizens following their lackluster display against Stoke.
