Manchester United to win with Jesse Lingard FGS @ 9/2 with Betfair

Stoke City fans were definitely glad to see the end of Mark Hughes’ four-and-a-half year reign at the Bet365 Stadium last week, after a humiliating FA Cup excit at the hands of Coventry City. In truth, it had been coming for weeks, with the Potters languishing in the relegation battle and on a very poor run of form.

It doesn’t get any easier for them, either, with a trip to Old Trafford to face Hughes’ former club Manchester United on Monday night. It has been far from an easy few weeks for Jose Mourinho, but his side should have enough to get the points in this one. The last time they met, in September, United were flying and Stoke became the first side to take points from them.

Jesse Lingard is in stunning form, though, and we are backing him to lead his side to three points.

Form


Although United were able to progress to the next round of the FA Cup, unlike Stoke, they have not had it all their own way of late. Their Premier League title challenge is dead in the water with 15 points now the gap to Manchester City, and draws against the likes of Leicester and Southampton in December have contributed to that.

Stoke’s defeat to struggling Newcastle on New Year’s Day was the final straw for many fans, but a similar, heavier defeat to West Ham was also a turning point. Despite wins over Swansea and West Brom, Stoke don’t seem able to get themselves out of trouble and currently sit 18th, with no managerial appointment yet made.
