5 talking points – Stoke City Vs Manchester United

Manchester united went into their boxing day showdown against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium under immense pressure and at 5th position in the league. Louis Van Gaal has received a lot of criticism by the media after a rather disastrous run by his team in the past few weeks and of course after that walking out during his last press conference. Manchester United came into the match without a win in their previous six matches while on the other hand their opponents had defeated United’s city rivals and Chelsea in the past few weeks. A loss, if the newspapers are to be believed, would lead to Van Gaal’s sacking. But a sweet victory at these tough times could have changed things for the Dutchman .

Yet it didn’t happen for the Dutchman who saw a dreadful performance from his side who were KOed by stoke at boxing day. A mistake from Depay allowed Bojan to score the first goal for Stoke in the 19th minute and Arnautovic scored a screamer 7 mins later. United have now have lost 4 games on the bounce in the Premier League, something that hasn’t happened since November 1961. The game ended 2-0 for Stoke City and now has seen United take just 2 points of a possible 15 in their last five matches. Van Gaal will definitely have a tough holiday season ahead.
