Manager Roberto Mancini won his first trophy with the Blues when they lifted the Cup in 2011 after beating Stoke 1-0 at Wembley. A repeat of that solitary-goal win this weekend is 11/2 with the Club’s online betting partner.
Manchester have been banging in the goals recently and have picked up 12 points in their last four league games – that included a 3-0 home win against Stoke.
Paulo Zabaleta, Edin Dzeko and a Sergio Aguero penalty gave the Premier League champions all three points that day and Zabaleta – who limped off after 64 minutes in the 2-0 win against Fulham last weekend - is 33/1 to score the opening goal again on Saturday.
City to run out 3-0 winners at the Britannia Stadium is 13/1 in Paddy Power’s correct score market while the Blues to win by exactly three goals is 9/1 in the winning margin market.
A penalty to be awarded is 15/8 while Man City to score a penalty is 9/2.
Mancini’s side has kept a clean sheet in three of the last four wins and the champions are 2/1 to win to nil against Stoke or 7/5 to keep a clean sheet against the Potters.
Spanish international David Silva hit the net twice for City in the 2-0 victory against Fulham last weekend that allowed the champions to narrow the gap at the top of the table to five points.
Silva is 15/2 to get the opening goal against Tony Pulis’ side in the weekend’s early-afternoon kick off.
Edin Dzeko is City’s top scorer in the league with 10 goals and the Bosnian striker is 13/8 to score at anytime and add to his three goals in five games in all competitions against the Potters.
Dzeko is 11/2 to score the first goal of the game or 7/2 to score first for City in Paddy Power’s online betting.
