Stoke put on a masterclass against a Manchester City who were just plain awful. Mark Hughes‚Äôs side were everything Manuel Pellegrini‚Äôs men hope to be: quick, slick and teeming with dazzling trickery.
The headline acts in Stoke‚Äôs fourth consecutive home victory were Xherdan Shaqiri and Marko Arnautovic, who scored both goals and could and should have had a hat-trick.
Shaqiri was the Potters‚Äô creator and the visitors‚Äô tormentor-in-chief. It was his two sublime balls that punched the h0l¬£ in the visiting defence from which Arnautovic beat Joe Hart.
