Paul Lambert appointed Stoke City manager as successor to Mark Hughes

Paul Lambert appointed Stoke City manager as successor to Mark Hughes”

Lambert has signed a two-and-half-year contract to replace another ex-Rovers boss, Mark Hughes, who was sacked nine days ago.

Quizzed on Mkhitaryan's future over the weekend, Mourinho said that "every player has a price" but stated that the Armenian would probably play again against Stoke having started in the FA Cup. Stoke have a solid team and to look at their squad one has to wonder why they are struggling.

The threat of relegation to Stoke is real.

It'll be a tall task to topple Man United at Old Trafford for the Potters.

After Manchester City's first defeat of the season against Liverpool on Sunday, United can close the gap between them and the league leaders to 12 points.

"We are all happy, we are lucky to play on Monday, which gave us this extra day to get back and tomorrow we are here again". But a win here on Monday night is an absolute. Expect Mata, Pogba and Matic to assume the midfield three. 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. Jose Mourhino's sides in years past have always been good at capitalising on points dropped by their opposition.

Manchester United made up ground on their city rivals on Monday. 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.

It remained for Lukaku to offer a timely reminder of his centre-forward qualities, taking down a drilled pass from Martial to muscularly turn and finish with aplomb. Personally I feel like United will win this by three or four.

The French worldwide could yet be dragged into the ongoing Alexis Sanchez transfer saga, with the Evening Standard now reporting that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants to "explore his availability" as part of a possible January part-exchange deal.
