    Why didnt lescott play?

    I thought lescott was starting every game if fit. maybe a stupid question just wondering how often he will be on the bench.

    • I guess Pellegrini was happy to field a weakened starting XI @Stoke for a couple of reasons. He may have not wanted to risk anymore injuries in what's always a tough game, plus they play the might of ... Viktoria Plzen! on Tuesday, (tickets £86, no concessions AND you go in the home end! lol) ... then an easy game v Utd on Sunday. I don't like managers doing that, but it's up to him. If Stoke had a decent striker, City would have lost that 2 or 3 nil.
