Manchester United vs Stoke City Preview

Manchester United vs Stoke City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 15th January 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Manchester United did not make the best of their festive schedules as they failed to win 4 games on the spin at some point and where knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Bristol City.

They look to have gotten their winning form back and winning this game would boost their morale further.

In-form Jese Lingard helped them to a late win in the FA Cup last weekend and they followed that up with a 2-0 win over Everton in the league.

They are currently second in the league table only on goal difference though as they have the same points as Liverpool and Chelsea who are 3rd and 4th respectively.

A win here would take them to within 12 points of Manchester City who lost to Liverpool on Sunday.

Managerless Stoke City have all to play for in this game as they look to avoid relegation.

They were knocked out of the FA Cup by Coventry City last weekend – a game that spelled the end of the road for Mark Hughes.

That was their third loss on the bounce and they currently have one win and six losses from their last 8 competitive games.

Stoke have lost to all of the top six teams in the EPL except Manchester United and Arsenal and they have not scored in any of their last 4 games.

They have won one, lost two and drawn four of their last seven games against Manchester United.
