Striker in the first eleven for Man City trip

CAMEROM JEROME has earned a starting berth for Stoke City's visit to Manchester City this afternoon after his stunning equalising goal against Southampton on Saturday.

The forward rifled home from 35 yards to secure a point and extend the Potters' unbeaten run in the Premier League to 10 games.

Charlie Adam is also in Tony Pulis' starting eleven, making his first appearance since the sudden death of his father last month.

Ryan Shawcross and Geoff Cameron, who were both suspended for the Southampton game, return to City's back four for the clash against the Premier League champions at the Etihad Stadium.

Steven Nzonzi will play despite his sending off at the weekend, as the Potters are appealing the decision.

Manchester City make two changes from their dramatic 4-3 win at Norwich City, with Joleon Lescott stepping in for Matija Nastasic and James Milner deputising for the suspended Samir Nasri.

Stoke City team to face Manchester City: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross (c), Huth, Wilkinson; Jerome, Nzonzi, Adam, Whelan, Walters; Jones. Subs: Sorensen, Upson, Shotton, Whitehead, Etherington, Kightly, Crouch.
