Manchester United v Stoke Prediction 2nd February 201630th January 2016 / lee
Manchester United v Stoke Premier League, 2nd February
Well, Manchester United’s comfortable FA Cup win over Derby made them at least look like a good Championship side. But they haven’t shown a lot of quality in the Premier League this season and they slumped to a home defeat against Southampton last time out in the top flight. Stoke can make a real nuisance of themselves and they have already taken down the Red Devils once this season in the league. Can the Potters pull of the league double against Manchester United? Manchester United are trading at 8/11 to take the three points, with the draw at 5/2 and Stoke at 4/1.

Manchester United v Stoke Betting Tips
The Red Devils have lost just one of their last five Premier League matches as part of a W2 D2 L1 record. They have won just the one of their last five Premier League home matches though, suffering that loss against Southampton in their last fixture there. There has been just twelve home goals all season from United in the top flight which is an average of 1.09 per game. Fortunately they have had a good defensive record which has seen them concede just the five in their eleven played at Old Trafford. This all points to Manchester United v Stoke going under 2.5 goals for a price of 5/4. United have good form against Stoke at Old Trafford though, having won all seven of their Premier League home fixtures against them.
They have beaten Stoke 11 times in the Premier League, only Chelsea have won against the Potters as often (also 11). United are running on their lowest tally of league goals after 23 matches (28 goals) since the 1989/90 campaign. There’s little quality output from them in getting efforts on target, but Wayne Rooney is in form and he has scored three goals in his last two Premier League games against Stoke. He’s worth a flutter in the Coral first goalscorer market for the match. United have claimed eleven clean sheets in the Premier League this season and with that in mind, you can’t expect this to be a high scoring game.
Stoke have been struggling for form on the road as well. They have won just one of their last five away from the Britannia in the top flight, that win being that dramatic 4-3 win at Goodison Park over Everton. Overall they have posted a W3 D1 L2 record in their last six league matches home and away and on the road they have scored only eleven goals all season. Punters may be thinking of a 0-0 Correct Score punt on this one at a price of 7/1. Given Stoke’s history at Old Trafford in the Premier League, that wouldn’t be a bad result for them. Stoke boss Mark Hughes has lost his last eight games at Old Trafford now as a manager.
Who will win – Manchester United v Stoke Predictions
Stoke haven’t been hitting the heights on the road and are a better home side. The Potters have failed to score in their last two league matches and while United have the joint-lowest tally of shots on target in home matches this season in the Premier League, they are likely to edge their way to a narrow defeat. Home win in a low scoring game.
