The Manchester United vs. Stoke match will be played on Monday, January 15, at the Old Trafford, Manchester. Manchester United is currently 2nd on the table with 47 points, while Stoke is 18th on the table with 20 points at the moment. This is the final match of Premier League round 23.


  • After four games without a victory, Manchester United defeated Everton in the league and Derby County in FA Cup in the last two matches. They kept a clean sheet in their last three games in all competitions.
  • Stoke lost three games in a row. They are performing terribly against the top six in away matches. For example, Manchester City defeated them by 7:1, Tottenham by 5:0 and Chelsea by 5:0.


In their previous ten meetings, Manchester United won four games, Stoke won two matches, while four games ended in a draw. In their last three matches we saw a draw, and in eight out of those ten games we saw 2 or 3 goals scored.


After recording three draws in a row against Leicester, Burnley and Southampton, Manchester United probably lost the race for the title against Manchester City. Their primary goal until the end of the season is to keep one of the top four positions and qualify for Champions League. Romelu Lukaku is out of form currently, and this match might be ideal for him to get his name on the scoresheet.

Stoke dropped into the relegation zone and sacked Mark Hughes after the defeat against Coventry in the FA Cup. Quique Sanchez Flores and Martin O'Neal are reportedly refused the offer from Stoke, and they will face Manchester United with a caretaker manager. They will be happy if they avoid a humiliation at Old Trafford.
