United deal with Stoke at Old Trafford amid Sanchez talk

Paul Lambert

In between the two first-half goals, Stoke had some moments of hope with injury-plagued Stephen Ireland, starting a league game for the first time in 996 days, coming close twice in quick succession, placing shots wide from no more than 15 yards.

Manchester United dominated the game from kick-off and within less than 10 minutes a Paul Pogba pass reached Antonio Valencia who carved into Stoke City's back-line, burying a handsome left footed strike putting the home team ahead 1-0.

"We scored two unbelievable goals and for me that was the good thing of the first half". Mourinho's side, meanwhile, are now three points clear of third-placed Liverpool in the table. But those opportunities were not seized upon, and in the end, it was a comfortable victory for United.

"That is a stunning goal from Martial, brilliantly seen by the excellent Pogba".

City have seemingly dropped their interest in Sanchez due to the cost of the deal, and they might come to regret it. Chelsea are reportedly making a late play to sign the attacker, but United remain in the driving seat.

The Red Devils finished sixth and won both the Europa League and League Cup last term.

Fellow relegation zone dwellers West Brom and Swansea also picked up points. They will then visit Bournemouth on February 3 ahead of a home game against Brighton & Hove Albion seven days later. They have lost six of their last nine Premier League matches, with a W1 D2 L6 record over that span.

Stoke's new manager Paul Lambert, appointed earlier on Monday, watched from the stands, with the sacked Mark Hughes' former assistant Eddie Niedzwiecki in charge of the team.

Lambert was effectively fourth choice when considering that Stoke failed to land Martin O'Neill, Gary Rowett or Quique Sanchez Flores.

Manchester United have not conceded in 323 minutes of competitive action in all competitions and Stoke will have to pull something really special out of the hat - to beat David De Gea and co.

Peter Crouch and Xherdan Shaqiri are among those recalled while January signing Moritz Bauer is handed a debut.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who scored twice against United earlier this season in a 2-2 draw, also saw a goalbound shot blocked by Phil Jones.

The Premier League Gameweek 23 comes to a close with Manchester United playing Stoke at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have been getting healthier over the past few weeks.
