Manchester United vs Stoke City 2018 EPL Preview and Predictions

Manchester United will be in action in the English Premier League this weekend as the Red Devils take on Stoke City at home. With Manchester City dropping points in the last few weeks, it gives Jose Mourinho and his side hope that the title race is still alive meaning we should get some good performances.

Stoke City is a team in trouble. The sacked their manager and it seems like things are still looking bad. Relegation is a real concern for the club and playing away from home at Manchester United will not help that. This team has enough talented players with Jese and Shaqiri and the club but unfortunately, the defense is not good enough to allow them to win games. Transfer news is suggesting that Jack Butland might also be leaving the team and it that happens, it will only get worse for Stoke City.

On the other side of the coin, Manchester United will hope that they can win quite easily. This side has had issues with injury but there is enough depth in the squad that this should not trouble them in this particular fixture. Lingard has been playing some really good football lately and he has linked up strongly with the likes of Martial to provide a good platform in the attacking third. This should continue and I think that will allow the Red Devils to win easily at home.

We are not getting the best price to bet on a Manchester United win and as a result, we should avoid that bet. The best bet for this game is the over 2.5 goals which I think comes through very often considering the attacking power of both sides.

 

Pick:
Over 2.5 goals
