Alright Manchester United supporters, it's time for you to offer up your predictions for the upcoming clash with Stoke City. Tony Pulis' side will likely never contend for a top four spot, yet, they are a side that Premier League clubs often dread facing because of the unique physical challenge they present. At Old Trafford, though, United have not had much trouble versus them as the Potters haven't won there since 1976. The pattern of the game is likely going to be one that nearly all football fans can predict: United will dominate possession and look to breakdown a resilient Stoke side while the visitors will look to play direct football and score from set-pieces. It would be nice to have Nemanja Vidic available, due to his past dominant performances against Peter Crouch, and Chris Smalling might have been a nice option at right-back in order to provide a bit more stoutness in the back. However, both defenders are still out. Nonetheless, the Red Devils are clear favorites for the match. How do you feel ahead of this contest? What are your predictions?
