Why Manchester United Should Win This Game Against Stoke City?

Jose Mourinho

The Red Devils wil look to continue their 100% win record so far this season. José Mourhino’s side have so far been nothing but impressive as they have not only won all the three Premier League games but have also managed to keep three clean sheets at the same time, Manchester United find themselves on top of the league table with 9 points. They are obviously now one of the favourites to clinch the league title. Although they now face a tough challenge in the form of Stoke who on their day can upset any of big 5.

Stoke are always one tough side to beat especially at home, The Potters will also look to get a positive result from this fixture. Mark Hughes side has already beaten a league giant this season and will look to do the same against Mourhino’s side and in the process will look to go with the same ‘ Samsh and Grab’ strategy as they did against the Gunners.

Team News.

Attacking Midfielder’s: Herrera, Mkhtiriyan, Martial.
Center Forward: Romelu Lukaku.

My Score Prediction: 

Stoke City 0 – 2 Manchester United.

The Red Devils have been in top form and it will be tough for a team like Stoke City to contain them for 90 minutes. Now matter how hard the Potters try, the attack that the Manchester based side possesses will eventually break through their defensive line. It will be tough for the hosts to them get back into the game, unless they produce something really special and that is where Jose Mourinho’s team will take the match away.
