Stoke vs. Man Utd: Stoke City tipped to test Manchester United once again
Premier League giant Manchester United have been in spectacular form this season, but Saturday’s away fixture at Stoke represents their toughest test so far in this new Premier League season.
The Potters look like a team that is capable of doing well themselves, notably beating the Gunners at this same venue last month.
Like Arsenal, Manchester United do not have a remarkable record at this Stadium.
Stoke City followed up that 1-0 victory over the North Londoners by struggling to a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion, with Peter Crouch equalizing in the 77th-minute.
City manager Mark Hughes has made a lot of changes at the club since replacing Tony Pulis back in May 2013, but their trademark fighting spirit remains intact.
The club reinforced their defence this summer, with a £18million move for Kevin Wimmer from Spurs adding to the signing of Bruno Martins Indi and Kurt Zouma on loan.
With former Manchester United man Darren Fletcher joining in midfield, Stoke City now have a solid team to build on.
Jose Mourinho’s men went into the international break leading the log after claiming a third consecutive win by defeating Leicester, netting ten goals to date and none conceded.
Last League results:
West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Stoke City – Peter Crouch
