Jose Mourinho's side are now 12 points behind league leaders Manchester City English Premier League giants Manchester United on Monday, January 15 secured a 3-0 comfortable win over relegation-threatened side Stoke City at Old Trafford. Wing-back Antonio Valencia handed the hosts the lead within 9 minutes of game play from a Pogba assist, curling a beautiful shot into the far corner with his left foot. Antonio Martial made it 2-0 in the 38th minute, capitalizing on a fine assist from Pogba. Despite both sides heading into half-time with United two goals up, Stoke had several moments of inspiration with a couple of decent chances. Summer-signing Romelu Lukaku sealed the Red Devils' victory in the 72nd minute, slamming home from a Martial pinged pass.
