Numbers game: Stoke City (H)

We break down the statistics from City's 1-1 draw at home to Stoke City in midweek.

Famara Diédhiou was denied by the goalkeeper in a one-on-one situation, City's greatest chance of taking the lead before they did exactly that just before half-time.

Filip Benković curled a shot into the far corner after Stoke struggled to clear a corner and it was a finish any striker would be proud of.

However, Stoke had fight in the second half and pulled level through Danny Batth's close-range header.
