Manchester United to win by exactly two goals @ 10/3 with Bet365

Right now, Manchester United look as though they could run away with the Premier League title. After three victories from three games, including back-to-back 4-0 wins and a 2-0 win, Jose Mourinho appears to have got his house in order at Old Trafford. Two signings in particular, Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku have made a real difference. The latter’s impact is no surprise, because he cost £90million and is expected to score goals, which he very much is after netting three in his first four Premier League games. Matic, though, has strengthened United and made them more solid.

It wasn’t that Mourinho’s side weren’t solid last season, it was that they were too solid in a sense. Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera barely strayed out of position all too often, and it made the Red Devils rather toothless in attack. But Matic solidifies enough by himself and allows Pogba the freedom to go forward. This is the player Mourinho thought he was buying, the energetic powerhouse who connects midfield to attack; his relationship with Lukaku is excellent and because he will constantly be looking to run beyond the Belgian, he is a very good option to back to score in an away win at 9/1. Backing the same outcome with Lukaku netting first gives offers of 3/1, which could still offer some good value depending on the stake.

Stoke are an organised outfit and have the quality in attack to threaten, particularly through Jese Rodriguez. The former Real Madrid man scored on his debut against Arsenal in a 1-0 win in their only home game to date this season, and he could be worth backing to score anytime at 4/1 with Bet365. But United are yet to concede a goal this season, meaning an early goal should make another of our tips, an away win in both halves, a probable outcome.

The home side should take heart from beating Arsenal, but this Manchester United side is a much better side right now. It looks complete, with a strong defence, ironclad midfield and dynamic attack. Because they can deal with all sort of different styles, they should have too much for a Stoke side who will once again look to make their stadium a fortress.

Key battle: Kurt Zouma vs Romelu Lukaku

Stoke have quietly done some good business in this transfer window, strengthening across the board. Kurt Zouma is a very exciting young defender, with pace, power and intelligence, but his career has stalled at Chelsea because of a serious knee injury and he moved to the Potteries to find his fitness and confidence again.

Facing Lukaku is a tough task for anyone right now, but his strength could make Zouma the biggest challenge he’s faced of the season so far. Negating the space in behind will be key, forcing Lukaku backwards, but Zouma will be able to hold his own in a foot race too. Manchester United should win and Lukaku could well score, but it will not be easy if this towering Frenchman faces him.
