Shaqiri v Man City

Sergio Aguero is ruled out for Manchester City's trip to bet365 Stadium on Monday. He suffered a knee injury in training this weekend. 

Fernandinho, Raheem Sterling (both hamstring) and Fabian Delph (muscular) could be in contention for Monday's match. 

Benjamin Mendy (knee) is back in training but still not match fit.

Stoke City will be without Mame Biram Diouf after the striker suffered a shoulder injury against Southampton last weekend.

Lee Grant (wrist) and Stephen Ireland (calf) remain sidelined.

Did you know?

Stoke City have kept a clean sheet in three of their last seven PL matches against Manchester City but they have conceded 19 goals across the other four, including seven in October’s reverse fixture.

Xherdan Shaqiri has had a hand in 13 PL goals this season (seven goals, six assists). Only two Stoke players have been involved in more in one campaign: Marko Arnautovic (17 in 2015/16) and Mame Biram Diouf (14 in 2014/15).

Sergio Aguero could become the first PL player to score at least twice in three consecutive away matches against the same club, after doing so twice at Stoke. Overall he has eight goals in his eight PL matches against them.

David Silva has nine PL assists this season, with only Kevin De Bruyne (14) and Leroy Sane (11) providing more. If Silva gets another one, Man City will become only the third team to have three players in double figures for assists in a PL campaign, after Liverpool in 1995/96 and Arsenal in 2004/05.
