    Mame Biram Diouf nutmegged Joe Hart on a full-field dribble in the 58th minute, and Stoke City withheld an onslaught of Manchester City attack to hold on for a 1-0 win at the Etihad Stadium.

    Stoke now has four points on the season, while Man City stays at six points.

    Manchester City dodged a bullet in the 20th minute, when Diouf was dropped by Martin Demichelis inside the box. No penalty was given at the Etihad, and Stoke boss Mark Hughes was furious.

    Stoke’s one man up-top — Peter Crouch — showed that Hughes was ready to roll out a defensive approach against his old team, and the Potters were able to hold Man City off the score sheet for a while.
