Manchester United vs Stoke Prediction & Betting tips
In the duel of the two champions of the past few years, the current title holder Chelsea on Saturday did not manage to win against Ex Leicester at home despite a 25-minute defeat. This gives Manchester United a chance on Monday to consolidate second place and build up a small buffer in third place. A guest at Old Trafford is Stoke City, who is still approaching without a new coach following the troublemaking ten days ago and the subsequent dismissal of former coach Mark Hughes.
Manchester United :
The dominance of Manchester United as the second best team behind city rivals Man City seems to be over for a few weeks. This became particularly clear in the last ten days of December, when United only defiled in the quarter-finals of the League Cup at second division Bristol City with 1: 2 and subsequently came out in the Premier League not three draws in series. The opponents were with Leicester and home Burnley and Southampton also not the strongest. Especially against Burnley Manchester United were fortunate, as it scored after a 0-2 draw at the break thanks to a goal in added time just as a home defeat past. Even before these four winless games, Man United did not fame with fame as the Red Devils beat Bournemouth 1-0 at home and then won 2-1 at West Bromwich Albion.
In the new calendar year, Manchester United has seen at least some improvement in performance, however, the two were 2-0 successes at Everton, which has been without a win for six games and lost the last four, and against the second division Derby County in the FA Cup great spectacle. United has also scored twice against the underdog from the championship in the last six minutes. Manchester United have fourteen wins, five draws and three defeats in the Premier League, finishing second with 47 points. However, the championship is no longer an issue due to the dominance of city rivals Manchester City. At home, Manchester United’s record is matched by eight wins, two draws and one defeat, but the Red Devils have just won one of their last four Premier League matches in the Theater of Dreams. The first seven home games Manchester United had decided all for themselves.
Stoke City are currently in the premier league in 18th place. The record of five wins, five draws and twelve defeats is, of course, disillusioning, and West Bromwich won on rank 19 on Saturday, finishing second to Swansea. The advantage of Potters on these two clubs is thus only one or three counters. However, the gap to the places in front of it is not particularly large. For example, Newcastle on rank 14 is just three points away. Three of the four teams in the ranks 14 to 17 have already completed their match from the 23rd matchday. With a threesome at Old Trafford Stoke could make a big leap. But the recent results and also the direct duels against the big six in England give little reason to hope for an away win on Monday.
Stoke has lost all of his last three competitive games. Low point was the last game so far, when Stoke lost in the third round of the FA Cup at the fourth division Coventry City with 1: 2. That was also enough for the club’s leadership, who put the former coach Mark Hughes in front of the door just hours after the Cup. Overall, Stoke comes to only one win and six defeats in the last eight competitive matches. Away, Stoke has been waiting for a threesome since October 28, 2017. In the last seven competitive games on the opponent’s place there was a draw for Stoke twice, the other five games were all lost. With 47 goals, Stoke has most of the twenty Premier League clubs. In the away table Stoke is with only one win, three draws and seven defeats with a goal difference of 10:27 last.
