There is a busy day of Premier League action on Sunday with four games going off across the day including the big Tottenham v Manchester City showdown from White Hart Lane. However, starting the day’s action is the Manchester United v Stoke fixture from Old Trafford and many punters will have already slotted the Red Devils in as one of the bankers this weekend, because they have strong form running into this fixture against the Potters.
Manchester United have played Stoke eight times before in the Premier League at Old Trafford and the Red Devils have won each of those games. So in the Premier league they are carrying a 100% record in this particular fixture on Sunday. But the reading gets even better when you start digging deeper as well, because the Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 16 games against the Potters in all competitions.
Currently Manchester United are on a 13 match winning streak at Old Trafford against Stoke in all competitions and that’s form and trend not to be messed with. Mourinho’s men are firm favourites to win the match and the head to head just adds weight to that. You actually have to go a long way back to 1976 to find the last time that United failed to net in a match at home against Stoke, and that coincides with the last time they lost at home against the Potters. It’s been a brilliant stretch of form since then.
Manchester United hammered the reigning Premier League champions Leicester last weekend in the top flight, smashing the Foxes 4-1 in the fixture. That was a return to their best as they put on a great attacking display after Mourinho had ditched Wayne Rooney from the starting eleven. It was a breath of fresh air from the Red Devils after they had slumped to back to back top flight defeats against Manchester City and Watford. So this is a chance for them to start building some momentum.
The Potters are in a mess at the moment as well having claimed just the two points this season and not having looked close to winning a match. The Potters have been a shambles at the back and in each of their six league outings this season they have either conceded one goal or they have conceded four. They have the second worst defensive record this season in the top flight (only West Ham have shipped more) and so they are likely to come under some heavy pressure at Old Trafford.
