Manchester United 3 Stoke City 0

Manchester United 3 Stoke City 0

On a wet and windy Monday evening, Manchester United made no mistake in seeing off the challenge presented by Stoke City.

With Manchester City having suffered their first defeat of the season, at Liverpool on Sunday, a win for Manchester United saw the gap between the two Manchester clubs at the top of the table, reduced to 12 points.

Any hopes of City having a catastrophic collapse are still very unlikely but Jose Mourinho will ensure his side do not give up the chase.

Against Stoke City, Manchester United took the lead when Antonio Valencia opened the scoring. The goal was a decent one with Paul Pogba charging out of the middle of the park, finding Valencia with the ball and then watching as the defender fired a shot into the top corner of the net.

The goal gave Manchester United renewed confidence and it was, from that moment on, only a matter of how many they`d score.

The second goal was almost as good as the first when Pogba was once again the provider, this time finding Anthony Martial with a pass and the French striker fired home from twenty-yards out beating Jack Butland.

The game was now over for Stoke and Manchester United scored a third goal, late-on, when Romelu Lukaku netted late-on.

Although most of the action saw Manchester United going forward, David de Gea still earned his money producing some fine saves to deny Shaqiri and Diouf.
