Competition: Premier League
Market: Stoke City to win against Man Utd
Odds: 11/5 @ Coral
Stoke City welcome Manchester United to the Britannia Stadium this afternoon, and will fancy their chances of picking up maximum points given the contrast in form between the two sides. Stoke have beaten the likes of Chelsea, Southampton and Manchester City in the last few weeks, while United have failed to win their last four in the Premier League.
Such results could see United coming unstuck today, especially considering how poor Louis van Gaal side have been away from home this season. The Red Devils have dropped points in four of their last six Premier League outings on the road, but they can’t afford failure today if they want to remain in the title race.
Currently fifth in the table after 17 games, nine points adrift of leaders Leicester City, only a win can do against Stoke to somewhat stay in contention. The Potters could go eighth in the league if they can win on home soil, while United could go level on points with third place.
While the two sides are currently in different halves of the table ahead of this afternoon’s meeting at the Britannia, recent form between the two sides may well give the advantage to Stoke. As a result, Coral are giving odds of 11/5 for City to win against United.
