Monday 15th January 2017, 8pm – Man United v Stoke (Old Trafford)

Monday Night Football is always a cracker and that looks to be the case again this week with Man United hosting Stoke in a crucial game at both ends of the table. It has been a sticky spell for United of late but they will still be expected to ease past a Stoke team who have just sacked their Manager, and who are deep in relegation trouble.

United The Hot Favourites For The Win

United have slipped away from Man City at the top of the table in recent weeks with some frustrating draws to their name of late but they still go into this game in 2nd place. A win for them this weekend will ease the pressure around a miserable Jose Mourinho, and they are expected to do the business.

They have struggled to beat Stoke recently though, with three successive draws against the Potters in the Premier League.

Even taking that into account, United are the red hot favourites for the win against a Stoke team with the worst away record in the division. A home win on Monday is 1/5 with Paddy Power, whilst the same firm rate a Stoke win at a massive 14/1 for brave punters.

Leaky Stoke Defence Likely To Come Under Pressure

Mark Hughes is out of work after leaving Stoke last week, and that is mainly down to their woeful defensive record.

The Potters have conceded a remarkable 47 goals so far this term, which is at least seven more than any other team in the top flight. Their inability to keep the back door closed has cost them, and they go into this match weekend in the bottom three following two successive defeats.

Romelu Lukaku has been woefully out of form of late for United but this could well be the opportunity he has been looking for to get back in form. The Belgian striker is currently 12/5 with William Hill to open the scoring in the match, and plenty will be involved in that selection.

Stoke look unlikely to have a new Manger in the dug-out for this game and a trip to United is a big ask for a team with such a shocking defensive record. Jose Mourinho teams are not known for their attacking quality but against a shaky Potters outfit, we can see plenty of goals in this game.

A must win game for United and a desperate situation for Stoke means that over 3.5 goals can land at 11/8 with Paddy Power.
