The Story So Far
United have replicated last season's three-match winning start by beating West Ham 4-0, Swansea 4-0 and Leicester 2-0 but Jose Mourinho will be mindful of the fact that his team then followed three wins in a row with successive defeats twelve months ago.
Mourinho will also be wary of his team's relatively poor record in this Stoke v Man Utd fixture as the Red Devils have won just one of their last five meetings (drawn three, lost one), with the past two clashes ending in 1-1 draws - another 1-1 can be backed at 15/2 with Bet Victor.
Stoke are unbeaten in their last four home games against United (won two, drawn two) and they should offer a stern test after beating Arsenal and drawing with West Bromwich Albion in their last two outings.
Lack of Goals
Stoke didn't beat any of the teams that finished in the top-twelve in the league at home last season but they rectified that stat by stunning Arsenal last month and they are 7/4 to win or draw this weekend (Unibet).
They will make life difficult and under 2.5 goals this weekend looks like a very decent bet at evens with Unibet.com.
Indeed, six of the last seven meetings between these teams at Stoke have produced two goals or less, as did 61% of Stoke's games under Mark Hughes last term.
The worry for Stoke is their lack of firepower as they have managed just eleven goals in fourteen league games, with Saido Berahino now going 1823 minutes without a league goal, although the Potters are organised enough to make this a tight and testy affair.
