Man United v Stoke City: Red Devils to stroll to another home win

Manchester United are back on form after three wins in the space of eight days, and they’re set to cause more misery for a Stoke City side winless and languishing in the relegation zone.

Jose Mourinho’s men have netted eleven in their last five games at Old Trafford, notching up a couple of clean sheets along the way.

And there’s a good chance of United winning to nil once again as the Potters visit, with the Staffordshire outfit failing to score more than one goal in any Premier League game this season.

That means the 11/10 for the hosts to win to nil could be a very smart bet, especially with the visitors having lost 14 successive games at Old Trafford, with their last points at the Theatre of Dreams coming way back in 1976.

But Stoke’s troubles on their travels haven’t been confined to the red half of Manchester. Mark Hughes’ side have taken a single point from their last five league games on the road, conceding four to both Manchester City and Crystal Palace in that time.

For those looking for a longer shot, United look well priced to win 4-0 at 12/1, while its 16/1 for Stoke to receive a second 4-1 hiding in successive away games.

In the match betting, the Red Devils are 1/3 favourites, with 9/2 for the draw and 9/1 for a first City win here in over 40 years.
