Manchester United will collide against Stoke City in the Premier League tonight and a win for Mourinho’s men will close the gap and put them 12 points behind Manchester City, who suffered their first league defeat of the season at Anfield last night.
The Red Devils comfortably defeated Derby 2-0 in the FA CUP and should be considered favorites to beat the Potters at Old Trafford tonight.
As far as Mourinho’s team news is concerned, the Portuguese boss confirmed (MUFC) that Valencia is fit to return to the team so we can expect the Ecuadorian to start.
The former Chelsea manager also stated that French international Anthony Martial is not ready and Armenian attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan will probably play vs Stoke City.
We can expect, Marcus Rashford, Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard to start in the attacking midfield behind lone center forward Romelu Lukaku.
Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Stoke City.
