Premier League Monday Preview

The Premier League weekend finishes on Monday with Manchester United looking to close the gap at the top to 12-points.

Leaders Manchester City lost to Liverpool, which gives United the chance to finally try and narrow their advantage.

United are hosting relegated threatened Stoke City – who have just appointed Paul Lambert as their new boss, but he won’t officially take charge until Tuesday although he will be watching from the stands and be hoping for a good performance at the very least.

See below for a preview on each game, including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray, super agent and former Manchester City ace Barry Silkman, our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and bet365’s Steve Freeth.
