Stoke appoint Paul Lambert as replacement for sacked Mark Hughes

Stoke appoint Paul Lambert as replacement for sacked Mark Hughes

STOKE CITY HAVE appointed Paul Lambert as the club's new manager after a week of speculation linking Ireland boss Martin O'Neill the job.

Stoke are the longest-serving members of the Premier League outside the "Big Seven" of Spurs, Arsenal, Liverpool, Everton, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City having stayed in the top flight since 2008. They have lost six of their last nine Premier League matches, with a W1 D2 L6 record over that span.

Stoke City come into this game with no manager. As a result, first-team coach Eddie Niedzwiecki has been placed in temporary charge on a day-to-day basis. Three goals ultimately separated the two teams on the night, but the Potters were a million miles off Mourinho's side at Old Trafford. The offer will be available for players who register through this link, and ends on Saturday at 19:45 BST.

A couple of openings then fell the way of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who tested De Gea from one of them but could not send the ball past Phil Jones from the next one; the defender preventing a certain goal with his block.

Manchester United were always in control of the tie and found themselves in front inside 10 minutes courtesy of Antonio Valencia.

Pogba continued to compos the play at the middle of the park as the 24-year-old squared the ball at the edge of the box to an unmarked Anthony Martial who released a attractive curler at the top right corner making it 2-o for the Red Devils. Yet Lukaku has continued to be involved in the build up; often being deployed furthest forward to lead the line and bring others into play. That draw ended United's flawless start to the 2017-18 season. This is a side that has scored on average 2.2 goals a game at home and I would expect to see United score at least 3 tonight possible more.

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. Soccity will only remain ad-free if we receive support from our readers.
