Stoke hires Lambert to end frustrating search for coach

With Manchester United being linked to the capture of more players than most during the current transfer window, it's one signature in particular which could prove the most beneficial.

Manchester United: David De Gea 7 (out of 10), Antonio Valencia 7, Phil Jones 7, Chris Smalling 6, Luke Shaw 6, Nemanja Matic 6, Paul Pogba 8, Juan Mata 6, Jesse Lingard 6, Anthony Martial 8, Romelu Lukaku 7.

Lambert, who has also been in charge of Colchester, Wycombe Wanderers, and Blackburn, will undeniably have to fight an uphill battle in order to lift Stoke, who are now 18th in the Premier League, with just 20 points from their 22 games.

The right-back received a pass after good work outside the area from Paul Pogba and darted into the box, running at teenage defender Joshua Tymon, starting just the second league game of his career.

Stoke may have Erik Pieters and Bruno Martins Indi available after they have stepped up their recoveries from injury this week.

Stoke developed a habit of folding when going behind in the latter days of Mark Hughes' reign but they responded well.

Now is the time for this Manchester United team to step up and try to start the process of reeling in Manchester City. It must be said that United are on a decent run of results, however, as they are now riding a W6 D3 L1 mark over their past 10 games.

However, Mourinho says there are no certainties around any Old Trafford exits and expects Mkhitaryan to be ready for action.

The feeling around both clubs was very different when Stoke played Manchester United in early September.

Whilst Eric Choupo Moting scored twice for Stoke on the day in a 2-2 draw - the German has notched just twice since then.

This United/Stoke clash presents the Red Devils with the chance to remedy their season the best possible way as they trade tackles with Stoke knowing fully the importance of the tie and what it could bring to Manchester United's season.
