Man United vs Stoke City predictions, how to watch online live streaming and TV channel, team news and line-ups, betting tips and odds – Premier League 2017-18 preview


Manchester United resume their faint Premier League title challenge on Monday as they host Stoke City at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils beat Derby 2-0 to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup – a competition United must compete for given their shock EFL Cup exit and Man City’s dominance in the league.

Stoke, meanwhile, are in real danger of relegation this season as they sit 18th in the table, but have sacked former United striker Mark Hughes in an attempt to arrest an alarming decline.

However, Mourinho will be wary of the Potters after they secured an impressive 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
