Cape Town - Stoke City manager Paul Lambert insists there were plenty of positives to take from their 2-0 defeat to Premier League leaders Manchester City on Monday.

City midfielder David Silva scored both goals to hand the Potters a loss at home. Lambert's men have now gone six Premier League games without victory.

However, the manager believes his players showed some good signs in the game which bodes well for the upcoming clash with Everton on Saturday.

"This game is not going to define our season, not at all - there are positives to be taken from this game for sure,” Lambert told the club’s official website.

"We’re still well in the mix, there are plenty of points to be played for and we’ll be ready to go again on Saturday against Everton.” 

He added: "They never really managed to carve us open tonight, like they have with other teams. We made a couple of wrong decisions which helped them with their goals, but all in all I thought we were strong and resolute."

Kick-off is at 17:00 (SA time).
