Man United put in another dismal performance as goals from Bojan and Marko Arnautovic secured all three points for Stoke.
It was the fourth loss in a row in all competitions for van Gaal’s side and you get the sense that it is a matter of when and not if he will be sacked. Paddy Power are certainly of that opinion and they are now paying out to punters:
BREAKING: There's no point delaying the inevitable, so we are PAYING OUT on Louis Van Gaal to be the next #BPL manager sacked!

Patience among fans has been running out with van Gaal for a number of weeks now and you get the sense that defeat against Stoke is the final nail in the coffin for van Gaal.
United were abject from top to bottom at the Britannia stadium and there was no fight whatsoever from the players on the pitch or van Gaal and Ryan Giggs on the sidelines. 2,500 United fans travelled to Stoke and they were totally let down by the team.
