Before this match, Stoke City manager Alex Neil has absolutely no concerns about his or her fitness and has access to a completely healthy roster.

The 4-2-3-1 formation, which includes Jack Bonham, Ki-Jana Hoever, Phil Jagielka, Ben Wilmot, Dujon Sterling, Josh Laurent, Ben Pearson, Nick Powell, William Smallbone, Tyrese Campbell, and Jacob Brown, is what we believe The Potters should employ for this match.

Nigel Pearson, the Bristol City manager, has no worries about his team’s physical condition going into this game because he has a fully healthy group to choose from.

With Max O’Leary, George Tanner, Zak Vyner, Cameron Pring, Jay Dasilva, Matty James, Andreas Weimann, Tommy Conway, Omar Taylor-Clarke, Anis Mehmeti, and Nahki Wells as their starting lineup, we believe that The Robins are most likely to use a 4-2-3-1 formation to open the game.

We believe Bristol City will have enough opportunities to score against Stoke City in this game, but those chances may not be as numerous as the goals Stoke City could allow.
