Stoke City vs Manchester United: Predictions, Preview, H2H + Betting Tips – 09/09/2017

Manchester United vs West Ham United
English Premier League, Season 2017/18
Date: Saturday, 9th September 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Bet365 Stadium (Stoke on Trent).

TEAM NEWS

Stoke City started the season with a 1-0 away defeat at Everton. But they were quick to bounce back with a narrow win of the same magnitude at the expense of Arsenal. Then, they almost snatched another three points away at West Brom. But an unlucky own-goal at the death resulted in a 1-1 stalemate. Despite the result, Mark Hughes can take plenty of positives from his team as they look solid on all departments of play.

On the other hand, Manchester United made a solid start to their campaign with three wins on the bounce. And they scored 10 goals in total and are yet to conceded one. The new signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic were quick to settle down with their new team mates. While the biggest praise has to go to Paul Pogba, who bossed the midfield in all three games and got himself in the score sheet on two occasions.

Stoke:

Ryan Shawcross has a back injury that will keep him sidelined for the reception of Manchester United, which will see Kevin Wimmer make his debut following his £18m arrival from Tottenham.

Former United duo Darren Fletcher and Mame Biram Diouf are expected to overcome knee probles, while Kurt Zouma’s ankle injury will need to be assessed.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting sustained a hamstring injury during the international break and could be replaced in attack by Saido Berahino or Peter Crouch.

Manchester United:

Jose Mourinho could make some changes to his usual XI with one eye on their Champions League opener next week. Phil Jones and Eric Bailly are suspended for Wednesday’s match, which could see Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof make their first league appearances of the season this weekend to ensure they are not undercooked for the reception of Basel.

Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Matteo Darmian will also be pushing for game time here.

Manchester United re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the end of the transfer window but he isn’t expected to make a full recovery from a serious knee injury until the end of the year. Marcos Rojo is another long-term absentee.

Ashley Young and Luke Shaw are both closing in on returns after stepping up their respective recoveries for United’s underage sides.

Juventus vs Cagliari: Predictions, Preview, H2H + Betting Tips – 19/08/2017



Juventus vs Cagliari
2017/18 Italian Serie A.
Date: Saturday, 19 August 2017
Kick-Off: 17:00 UK,
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).

TEAM NEWS
Juventus are in high spirit to get on the winning ways again losing the Supercoppa Italiana. They will be eager to put their revenge and recover back after hosting Cagliari at Allianz Stadium this Saturday.

Juventus
Massimiliano Allegri’s men were the heavy favorites against Lazio, having won the 2015 edition against the Biancocelesti in Shanghai. They were determined to get back on track after losing the 2016 version to AC Milan, but were made to pay dearly for their sluggishness as Simone Inzaghi’s men took a 2-0 lead. Despite Paulo Dybala netting a well-deserved brace to cancel out Ciro Immobile’s double, it was not enough to prevent Lazio from clinching the first piece of silverware, and it will be very interesting to see how La Vecchia Signora responds to this slight setback as they take to the pitch for this match.

Cagliari
Massimo Rastelli’s men finished last season in 11th. Considering that the Rossoblu were back in the top flight after being relegated at the end of the 2014/2015 season that was a pretty impressive outcome. They were largely spearheaded by the efforts of veteran striker Marco Borriello, who netted 16 goals in Serie A and 20 across all competitions, but arguably their Achilles’ heel was none other than their horribly leaky defense, which saw them concede 76 goals.
To put that in perspective, only Palermo (77) and Pescara (81) did worse, and they were relegated. Certainly, that issue could certainly cost Cagliari dearly, especially considering that Juventus will be smarting after shipping three against Lazio, but the departure of Leonardo Bonucci has left a huge hole in La Vecchia Signora’s defense.

Juventus vs Cagliari: Head-to-head
Juventus have scored at least 2 goals in 20 of their last 23 home matches.
The Bianconeri have won 34 of their last 35 home matches
Cagliari have been defeated 3 times in away matches.
The Rossoblu have netted at least 2 goals in their last 3 away meetings.

Juventus vs Cagliari: Prediction
This could be a very interesting game. For starters, Juventus have seen both Bonucci and Dani Alves, two important facets of their defense depart, whilst they have brought in several new faces. Douglas Costa and Mattia De Sciglio are amongst those likely to be in the starting XI for Allegri, and Juventus have a very strong record at their home ground. There’s no reason for them not to pick up all three points, but given that they are still coming to grips with their changed back-line, Cagliari may be able to grab a goal here.
