In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 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.

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.
