Bet365 Stadium

Stoke City look to make it three wins on the bounce as they entertain Manchester United at the Bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

Stoke eased past struggling Sunderland last weekend, with Marko Arnautovic’s brace and Peter Crouch’s 99th Premier League goal enough to see off the Black Cats by a 3-1 scoreline.  The Potters now have a fairly difficult run of games, with this fixture followed by a visit of Everton, a trip to former manager Tony Pulis’ West Brom and a home tie against Crystal Palace. Despite stringing two wins together in their last two games, it would be surprising to see the Midlanders get anything from this.

Manchester United meanwhile saw their winning run come to an end, although they’re still unbeaten, as they drew to rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford last Sunday.  Zlatan Ibrahimovic bagged the Red Devils a point with his 14th Premier League goal of the season, and is now tied with Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa at the top of the goalscoring charts.

 

Stoke City vs Manchester United Betting Tips

Stoke may have won their last two games, but United's star man Zlatan is bang in form and so we fancy Manchester United to extend their unbeaten run here, with the Swede on the scoresheet again.
  • Win - Manchester United - 4/7

    Jose Mourinho has got the Red Devils playing great football, and they're unbeaten in 16 games in all competitions. We think they'll have enough to see off Stoke.

Stoke grabbed an unlikely draw at Old Trafford when these two met back in October, with former Liverpool man Joe Allen bagging the equaliser for the Potters.

Interestingly, the visitors have only won one of their last five visits to the Bet365 Stadium.
