Mourinho reacts to Lukaku's late miss against Stoke City”

The defensive midfielder has been one of the standout midfielders in the Premier League since joining the Blues in 2014 having had a brief and unsuccessful stint with the club between 2009 and 2011. "Stoke are hard, they are aggressive, they defend with a lot of people and they are unsafe at set-pieces", he said.

Jones has started the season superbly and was nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award after a mixed first season under Mourinho.

That's the beauty of Dream Team Weekender - there are no budget limitations so you can pick any player available from this weekend's fixtures, with Man City v Liverpool the pick of the bunch.

Stoke City missed only two goals in four games this season.

However, the Potters could hand Kevin Wimmer a first start after he signed from Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £18 million, per BBC Sport.

Stoke City will have a tough task this weekend as Manchester United comes to visit them.

The last timeStoke played United was at home in January and the clash proved to be an historic one.

This healthy competition will be good for the success of United this season. Luke Shaw and Ashley Young have proven to be quite solid for the Under-23s and could possibly hope to feature, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo remain on the sidelines.

A 1-0 United win seems to be the most popular outcome at 13/2 odds.

"I am happy with Lukaku with or without goals because his contribution is good", Mourinho told the BBC . You can get the best odds of 8/1 for our tip at Bet365.
