  • That's all from this clockwatch for today. Stick around for a full report and reaction from both camps.

  • Stoke rise to ninth in the table after three games, while the hosts drop to fourth spot. After the international break, the champions' next match is at Arsenal on Saturday 13 September, when Stoke play host to Leicester.

  • What a shock at the Etihad, as the champions' winning start to their title defence is ended by unfancied Stoke who were 14/1 to win this one at kick-off. Mame Biram Diouf's well-taken solo goal settles the affair.

  • Full-time: Manchester City 0 Stoke City 1 (Diouf 58).

  • Four added-on minutes to be played. Dzeko's glancing header from a Fernandinho ball in goes wide.

  • Kompany tries to find Fernandinho with a raking pass but the ball goes out of play.

  • YELLOW CARD! Yaya Toure is booked for diving after going down - somewhat theatrically - in the box under Pieters' challenge.

  • Man City have had 13 shots in the match so far but only two on target. Toure wants a free-kick after a challenge from Bardsley in the D, but it's not given.

  • Last change of the match - Muniesa ON, Moses OFF.

  • Moses makes a timely block to deny Navas as City continue to pile on the pressure.

  • Silva sets up Toure to take a shot, and the ball takes a deflection off Wilson's heels - but goes into the side netting.

  • Begovic spills a shot from Toure from a tight angle after a Man City corner, and then gathers the ball at the second attempt.

  • Aguero brings down the ball well on the left after a Navas delivery and cuts inside Diouf, but he skews his shot wide.

  • Bardsley flights in a lovely cross from the right and Crouch rises to direct a header towards goal, but it bounces the wrong side of the post. Great chance for the visitors again.

  • Aguero appeals for handball in the area, but Mason doesn't give it. A case of pinball after the Argentinian's run across the top of the area and subsequent shot which ricocheted about.

  • In-play betting update - Stoke are now 11/10 to win with Sky Bet, while Man City are 7/2 to turn this around.

  • Wilson and Shawcross both make brave blocks in the area to repel what is now a City onslaught. Then Dzeko heads over under pressure from Bardsley.

  • Stoke's second change - Adam ON, Odemwingie OFF. The sub has to go off on a stretcher after suffering an injury on the byline.

  • Two more subs for City - Dzeko and Navas ON, Jovetic and Nasri OFF.

  • That could have been another for Stoke - Odemwingie chipped in a ball from the right and Diouf was inches away from connecting.
