Manchester City begins the new year with a seven-point deficit to try and erase against current English Premier League leader Manchester United, and their first step toward trying to climb back to the top pits them against a tough team on a good run.
Stoke City is riding a 10-match unbeaten streak, and will be welcoming back Geoff Cameron from suspension as the Potters take on the Citizens and the Etihad in one of the top New Year’s chases of the day.
Manchester United will be intent on maintaining their seven-point edge, and will face Wigan in their first match of the new year. The match could mark Roger Espinoza’s first for his new team.
