Stoke City-Manchester United Betting Preview: Moyes' men value to see off solid Stoke

The visitors picked up a morale-boosting win at the weekend and our tipster is backing the Red Devils to build on that result by beating Mark Hughes' side
Manchester United claimed their first domestic victory in over a month on Sunday with an emphatic 3-0 win over Aston Villa and David Moyes' side will be looking to build on that result when they take on Stoke City in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

The Red Devils have already knocked out Premier League rivals Liverpool and Norwich City to reach the last eight of the competition and are chalked up as 4/5 (1.80) favourites with Paddy Power to make the semi-finals with victory over the Potters.

Mark Hughes' side have lost just one of their nine competitive fixtures on home turf this season and will fancy their chances of causing an upset against the Premier League champions.

Stoke, though, are largely unfancied by the odds compilers here, with Paddy Power offering 7/2 (4.50) on a home win while a draw is rated as a 13/5 (3.60) chance with the same firm.

It is worth noting that just one of Stoke's last seven matches at the Brittania Stadium - an impressive 3-2 victory over Chelsea - has produced more than three goals while the Potters were held to a goalless draw against Hull City at KC Stadium at the weekend.

With that in mind, the 10/11 (1.91) quote from Paddy Power for less than three goals to be scored looks to represent excellent value ahead of Wednesday’s clash.

United, though, will feel revitalised by their impressive triumph over Aston Villa on Sunday and, with Moyes' side having gone eight away matches without defeat in all competitions, the visitors are worthy of support at 4/5 (1.80) with Paddy Power to win on Wednesday.

Those looking to back bigger prices should consider Paddy Power’s first scorer market here and Danny Welbeck, who scored two goals in the weekend triumph at Villa Park, is the value play at a chunky 6/1 (7.0) with Paddy Power to break the deadlock for Moyes' men at Brittania Stadium.
