Manchester United’s injury woes have eased since the turn of the year and that should enable Jose Mourinho’s side to rediscover the form they showed at the start of the season. The Reds have won back-to-back matches after a run of four games without a win and have not conceded in their last 323 minutes of action in all competitions.
Stoke was dumped out of the FA Cup third round by League Two outfit Coventry last weekend and that prompted Mark Hughes’ dismissal. The Potters have lost nine of their last 11 competitive matches and could be three points adrift of safety by the time this Monday night fixture rolls around.
Stoke have only lost five of 18 Premier League matches they have played on a Monday night, but a trip to Old Trafford may be beyond their reach, especially when you consider their current circumstances. They’ve drawn their last three against the Red Devils, but haven’t won away to United since April 1976.
