Sidibe says Stoke have Man City players rattled

Stoke City striker Mamady Sidibe is convinced they have Manchester City running scared.

The two teams drew in the FA Cup on Saturday and Roberto Mancini's men must win tonight to keep pressure on fourth-placed Liverpool, as the fight for Champions League places increases.

Mali international Sidibe said: "They've got a lot more riding on the outcome of these games because there is so much expectancy at their club.

"So you can bet your lives they are looking at these games as being very important. I'm also sure it will be playing on their minds that they were beaten here last season and they won't like coming to the Britannia.

"But then neither do a lot of teams because of the atmosphere and the way we approach games."
