GETTY Manchester United full-back Antonio Valencia to return to action against Stoke

Antonio Valencia

This Monday night (15 January) Jose Mourinho's Manchester United will host a struggling and manager-less Stoke City side at Old Trafford with 3 league points on the line.

Stoke's Stephen Ireland, making his first start since May 2016, then missed two good chances as the visitors showed plenty of attacking intent.

The 24-year-old also took 96 touches, more than any of his team-mates, and stole possession six times, indicating all-around domination in terms of offensive and defensive contribution. The Shrews have enjoyed a bright campaign and are unlikely to be a pushover for their top-flight opponents.

The Potters slumped to a dismal defeat against League Two Coventry in a game that put the final nail in Mark Hughes' Stoke coffin. Mind you that all winnings are paid in free bets and that there is additional £100 in free bets waiting for you on your next 5 deposits.

Romelu Lukaku's biggest criticism this season has been his lack of firepower during the big matches of the season, often accused of only scoring against smaller teams and it's hard to deny the statement. This was because the visiting goalkeeper was given zero chance from Antonio Valencia's vicious swerving left-foot shot that rocketed past him.

One of the more important stats for some, both Pogba and De Bruyne have played big parts in their respective sides successes so far this season. Sanchez is definitely not heading to Old Trafford at Martial's expense.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting almost made up for Ireland's wastefulness a few minutes later when uncharacteristic lapse by David de Gea presented Stoke with their third decent opportunity of the opening half hour but, with his back to the ball, Phil Jones spared his goalkeeper's blushes, blocking Choupo-Moting's acrobatic effort at an open goal.

Just ten minutes into the game Antonio Valencia who was playing in the Premier League after missing out on six games with injury was spot on.

"Stoke bought players to play football".

- Manchester United has won 28 of a possible 30 points in Premier League home games against Stoke.

With nearly all of first-choice players available, a full strength Manchester United side is expected to start on Monday. "In the second half we improved, we moved the ball quicker, we had faster transitions, we passed the ball and recovered the ball and we created them problems".

"We always want to catch them so it was good for them to lose". The only one not to lose was Claudio Ranieri with Chelsea in September 2000 (3-3).

It is not the name supporters were expecting, but they won't care if their club is still in the Premier League come August.

One player who seems more eager than most in the Potteries to move forwards is Saido Berahino. "We just have to focus on ourselves, keep winning and I think we will be OK". There's been too much negativity, too much.
