I haven’t really bought into Manchester United so far this season. They won games by an impressive margin, yes, but I don’t think they’ve clicked yet. They scored three goals in three minutes against Swansea, West Ham were comfortable for 25 minutes before throwing the towel in and, as I said before, Leicester had good chances at Old Trafford where a top quality team would have punished them.
United do look a better team than last year. They look strong, they look quick with plenty of pace on the break but I don’t think Jose Mourinho will see his side as the finished article. Maybe he will stick himself in goal after his performance in the #Game4Grenfell – just not for penalties.
Joking aside, if they can go to Stoke and win then fair play to them. The bet365 Stadium has always been a hard place to go but I can see United edging it.
PUNDIT PREDICTS: Stoke City 1-2 Manchester United
