Man Utd

Stoke City and Manchester United meet at Britannia Stadium, in a match for the 18th round of the Premier League. The head‑to‑head record at this stadium favours the away team, since in the last 5 head‑to‑heads they won 2, tied 2 and lost 1. Nevertheless, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Premier League, played on 01‑01‑2015, they tied (1‑1). R. Shawcross (2' ) scored for Stoke City and R. Falcao (26' ) for Manchester United.

Analysis of Stoke City

After 6 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses, the home team is in the 11th position, havinf won 23 points so far. In the last match, they have lost at home against Crystal Palace by (1‑2), after in the previous match they have tied (0‑0) an away match against West Ham United. In the last 8 home league matches Stoke City has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 24 possible. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 0‑1 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches for this competition. 5 of their last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals, so there is a tendency for few goals in their home matches. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 20 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 7 of their 20 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Stoke comes to this match after loosing at home against Crystal Palace by 1-2. Ireland, Cameron, Muniesa, Crouch and Shay Given won't be available for this match because of injuries. Despite being at good shape, Stoke is a little agressive team with several difficulties to score goals and to play aerial game. So, we expect thart against a strong aerial opponent, the tactical approach will be crucial.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Butland, R. Shawcross, G. Cameron, P. Wollscheid, E. Pieters, G. Johnson, X. Shaqiri, I. Afellay, G. Whelan, M. Arnautović, Bojan.
Coach: M. Hughes.

Analysis of Manchester United

The away team is currently in the 5th position of the league, with 29 points won, after 8 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against AFC Bournemouth, by (2‑1). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Norwich City, by (1‑2). In the last 9 away league matches Manchester United has a record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 14 points out of 27 possible. In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 6 of the last 9 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Manchester United arrives desmotivated into this match thanks to a home loss against Norwich (1-2). Lindgard, Darmian, Rojo, Luke Shaw and Valencia are unavailable to this match because of injuries. Schweinsteiger will be also out because of suspension. The french forward Martial is their main offensive reference and his biggest value comes from his speed and capacity on one-on-one. They are strong at the aerial game with their central defender Smalling and Phil Jones. 

Confirmed Lineup: De Gea, C. Smalling, P. Jones, D. Blind, M. Fellaini, A. Young, Mata, Ander Herrera, M. Carrick, A. Martial, M. Depay.
Coach: L. van Gaal.

Betting suggestion:

We are expecting that Man Utd won't manage to win. Stoke is playing at home with their fans support and the visitors are on a bad mood currently, because they can´t won for six consecutive matches. So, we expect that the home team will take part of the visitor bad moment to earn some points at this fixture.
