Manchester United have started their new season in the Premier League in a sizzling manner, as they have collected 9 from their first 3 league outings. They have really appeared to be a spectacular side, with their productive displays being testaments to their grit and willingness to prove their mettle.
Prior to the international break, the Red Devils bulldozed past West Ham United, Swansea City and Leicester City with relative ease and their intention of grabbing silverwares looks crystal clear.
Under the stewardship of Jose Mourinho, United did pencil three sensational signings in the shapes of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof and the Portuguese does have a strong arsenal. They are due to make a trip to the Bet365 Stadium this weekend to face Stoke City.
The Potters are currently placed 11th in the league table with 4 points to their name, but for any side, an away trip to the backyard of Stoke City has been nightmarish more often than not. We expect Mourinho to put forth a strong side and here is our Manchester United’s predicted for their upcoming game.
At the heart of their defence, we expect Eric Bailly and Phil Jones to tee up once again. These two have been exceptionally resilient at the central defensive slots and should not be trifled with. Marcos Rojo is still out with cruciate ligament injury.
From the right-back position, we anticipate Antonio Valencia to be stationed whereas on the left-back slot, Daley Blind should be getting the nod to start. David De Gea should continue to be the custodian between the sticks.
Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba have been tied up in the middle by the former Chelsea manager and he is likely to keep doing the same this weekend as well. The duo have been very productive so far this season.
They have not only cushioned the back line meticulously, but have also given vision from the middle of the park to their side in order to chalk out offensive endeavours. Henrikh Mkhitaryan should be commencing the game as the no.10.
Anthony Martial’s pace and exuberance should be put on display from the left-wing whereas from the right flank, Juan Mata is expected to operate. They have to create handful amount of chances and fetch juicy deliveries to Romelu Lukaku, who has smashed 3 goals in as many games this season in the English top division, and is all set to lead the unit against Mark Hughes’ men.
