The Red Devils looks stronger in their last matches and on Tuesday night, they have a chance for another memorable moment. After a home win over Hull City on Saturday (3-0), Manchester United need to book their fourth league win in a row over the Stoke City, where the hosts don’t have a great record against the Red Devils. Manchester United are 4/11 favourites for the win, with the draw at 3/1 and Stoke victory at 6/1.
Comfortable run of fixtures will help Manchester United to gain ground for a top four finish. The Devils have lost just one of their last eight matches in all competitions. There are strong options in the anytime goalscorer market of course from United’s end, with Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao at 5/6, and Wayne Rooney, who has scored in his last two league games, is a 10/11 shot. Rooney has scored 67 goals in his last 101 Premier League home games at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have won five of the last six games against Stoke in all competitions. The last two between them at Old Trafford have been high scoring affairs, both going over 2.5 goals comfortably, and there is a chance on Tuesday’s match to going over 2.5 goals again. With just one goal conceded in their last three Premier League outings, maybe things are coming together for United at the back, and they can be backed at a price of 5/4 to win to nil, something they have achieved in their last two league outings at Old Trafford.
Stoke haven’t won games against the Red Devils in all competitions since February 1953. The Potters have picked up one win in their last fourteen against United, so they aren’t going to be backed heavily for their next trip to the Theatre of Dreams. Stoke have lost their last two Premier League outings, going down at home against Burnley in a shock defeat and then losing at Liverpool 1-0 on the weekend. Stoke have taken a W2 D2 L3 record and this is a tough period for them because they will face Arsenal twice, Chelsea, Everton and Manchester United twice in their next eight league matches.
They almost did a point at Anfield on Saturday, in a game where they have more shots on target than the Reds and took more possession. They deserved a point really. Stoke failed to score in two of their last three away games now and it looks like they will not make any troubles for The Red Devils. Four of Stoke’s last five games have gone over 2.5 goals, which simply throws more weight to goals coming on Tuesday night at Old Trafford similar as our soccer tip
Stoke are struggling for clean sheets and goals on the road, but United seems to be settling down finally. It is probably worth pushing for United to win, while the stats will suggest that the game is likely to see more than two goals in the game. It should be another three home points for the Red Devils in a high scoring game.
