[Teams] Stoke vs Man City: Confirmed Line-ups
City cruised through to the fourth round after beating Watford 3-0 but Stoke’s passage was far less assured, with Tony Pulis’ men being forced to try again after being held to a 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace. The Potters were then taken to extra time in the replay but eventually came out with a 4-1 victory to book a date with the champions.
Roberto Mancini has decided to rest Joe Hart for the game with Pantilimon given a rare start in goal. Sergio Aguero is also on the bench as Eden Dzeko and Carlos Tevez start up front.
Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:
Sorensen; Shotton, Shawcross, Huth, Wilkinson; Kightly, Whelan, Nzonzi, Etherington; Walters, Jones
Subs: Nash, Owen, Crouch, Adam, Whitehead, Upson, Jerome
Man City Team
Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Kolarov, Garcia, Barry, Milner, Tevez, Silva, Dzeko
Subs: Hart, Clichy, Rodwell, Sinclair, Aguero, Rekik, Lope
