PREDICTION
It’s life after Mark Hughes for Stoke as they make the journey to Old Trafford in search of the points that will get them out of the bottom three. They have drawn their last three leagues outings against Manchester United, but their defence has been incredibly generous this season and the form guide points to a win for Jose Mourinho’s men.

MEMORABLE MEETING
October 2013 saw the two sides face off at Old Trafford and although it was the home side who picked up the three points they had to do it the hard way. Stoke found themselves 2-1 up and looking like they were going to pull off an upset, but late goals from Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez would complete the comeback and give United a well-earned victory.
