Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United visit Stoke on Saturday (3pm kick-off) hoping to keep the pressure on the top four in the Premier League.

The Red Devils lost ground after drawing 1-1 with Liverpool last weekend, which means that they are now four points adrift of Arsenal in fourth.

However, it would have been a defeat against Jurgen Klopp’s side had Zlatan Ibrahimovic not headed home his 14th Premier League goal of the season six minutes from time.

Mourinho will once again look to his in-form striker when they visit Stoke on Saturday, although they’ll find it tough against Mark Hughes’ side, who have won both of their league games in 2017.

The Potters comfortably beat Watford 2-0 on January 3 before getting the better of Sunderland 3-1 last weekend, and in both games striker Peter Crouch got on the scoresheet to reach 99 Premier League goals.

Hughes will hope that the former England international can get his 100th against United on Saturday in what could be Stoke’s eighth win of the campaign.

So, with both these key strikers set to go head-to-head on Saturday, here is how Crouch and Ibrahimovic match up in the Premier League this season…
