VIDEO: Stoke City 2 – 0 Manchester City (Premier League Highlights 2015/16)


The striker netted two in the first half but it could have been more as Mark Hughes’ men took the three points against Manuel Pellegrini’s ineffective side

A quickfire first-half brace from Marko Arnautovic led Stoke City to a well-deserved 2-0 victory over an abject Manchester City at the Britannia Stadium.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes dropped Jon Walters to the bench, choosing to combine the lavish creative gifts of Ibrahim Afellay, Bojan Krkic and Xherdan Shaqiri with Arnautovic – a switch that paid off to devastating effect.

Shaqiri supplied a pair of wonderful assists for Arnautovic to establish a decisive lead after 15 minutes as City’s defence, again without injured captain Vincent Kompany, reprised the horrors of their thrashings to Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool this season.
