The Premier League crown won't be heading to Old Trafford this season, that fact is as good as certain. Nevertheless they remain in the battle for a top-four finish and while the Red Devils have suffered a few wobbles of late, they still sit second in the Premier League table with a single point separating them from third-placed Chelsea as things stand.

Jose Mourinho's men have no involvement in the EFL Cup after being dumped out of the competition by Championship side Bristol City last month and this heralded a dip in form which saw the Red Devils only manage subsequent draws with Leicester City, Burnley and Southampton. Since then they have returned to form with a win over Everton in the Premier League and an FA Cup third-round victory over Derby County, however can they make it three wins on the bounce when they welcome the Potters to Old Trafford on Monday evening?

Stoke have been struggling this season with the manager-less side now in the bottom three in the Premier League thanks not some utterly disappointing results. It was no shock when the club decided to dispense with the services of manager Mark Hughes following the FA Cup third-round defeat to League Two side Coventry City last time out and temporary boss Eddie Niedzwiecki will have a tough task attempting to restore confidence and morale in the side given that they have managed just a single win in their last eight competitive games.

Stoke City are certainly down on their luck at the moment and with Manchester United returning to winning ways, we're expecting a thoroughly one-sided exchange at the 'Theatre of Dreams' on Monday evening. The Potters haven't won at Manchester United's ground since 1976 and given that they have conceded at least three goals against the likes of Chelsea, Spurs and West Ham in recent outings, we'll be siding with the home side to win this match in comfortable fashion.
