Paul Lambert appointed Stoke manager

Paul Lambert appointed Stoke manager

Manchester United host Stoke City on Monday and the Red Devils will have a chance to cut down the lead of Premier League leaders, Manchester City to 12 points from 15 points. I expect Peter Crouch might get some more game time as the Potters have scored just 23 goals in 22 games this year and have conceded a league high 47.

Stoke City have named Paul Lambert as their new manager but some Bookmakers are not convinced and have paid out on them to be relegated.

"Obviously we see Manchester City in front of us and they lost", United's Paul Pogba told Sky Sports.

City ended its interest in the Chile forward on Monday, leaving United as the favorite to sign a player who appears keen to move from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Manchester United will be without Ashley Young, who serves the last match of his suspension, while Antonio Valencia and Michael Carrick are doubtful for this weekend as they continue to recover from injury. Eric Bailly remains sidelined but could return at a similar time.

Erik Pieters is a slight doubt for the game due to a tight hamstring but he will be assessed nearer the time. The onus is now on Eddie Niedzwiecki who has been in temporary charge since and he must find a way to rally his troops ahead of a daunting trip to Old Trafford. While the gap is probably still too large for Manchester United or anyone else to catch City it could make it interesting if Manchester United win a few games and City continue to drop points.

The match will be held at Old Trafford. Lukaku, Lingaard and Rashford should lead the line with Martial carrying a knock. "Martial is not ready, but I hope he can play".

Xherdan Shaqiri called United goalkeeper David de Gea into action as he looked to add to his catalogue of spectacular volleyed goals, while Stephen Ireland - making his first Premier League start since April 2015 - should have done better when he hooked a shot wide from inside the United box in the 17th minute. In fact, 2 of those goals came against Manchester United in the reverse fixture when Stoke halted the winning run of United by holding them to an entertaining 2-2 draw.
