Always been difficult at Britannia Stadium but today the team showed again a very good spirit to go through into next round.From @pablo_zabaleta on Twitter:
Man City match winner Pablo Zabaleta spoke to ITV's Ned Boulting after the one-nil win at Stoke where the Argentine defender scored his third goal of the season - a record he's pretty proud of.
Fantastic victory. Matched their physicality, imposed our own passing style at times and fully deserved the win.From @viewfromablue on Twitter:
That is a top result against a disgusting team. Well played City, and well played Mancini for taking his time to get the change right.From @Wanchope_Dickov on Twitter:
City deserved the win today, and rightfully progress to the next round.
Pablo Zabaleta gives Man City a deserved late lead.
SUB - Man City (Tevez off/Rodwell on)
City are looking to add more structure to their midfield.
