Manchester City are banking on Shaun Wright-Phillips and Pablo Zabaleta shrugging off minor knocks ahead of tomorrow’s visit to Stoke.

Both men came out of Wednesday’s win over Newcastle complaining of soreness but manager Mark Hughes expects the pair to be available.

City head to the Britannia Stadium with three wins from their last four Barclays Premier League games but looking to record their first success away from Eastlands since August.

Team (from): Hart, Schmeichel, Zabaleta, Ohuoha, Richards, Bridge, Ball, Garrido, Ben Haim, Wright-Phillips, Kompany, Fernandes, De Jong, Elano, Ireland, Robinho, Bellamy, Jo, Vassell, Caicedo.
