The Old Trafford outfit has also been boosted by a new £5.1 billion domestic broadcasting deal signed by the Premier League with Sky and BT, that has contributed to a rise in income for all the clubs involved. Nevertheless, so far, "Stoke City" in the native walls did not lose. In addition, the match will be missed by another centerback Kurt Zuma, who is rented from Chelsea and cannot play.
Stoke, now placed 13th in the league, are on a three-game winless run since their 1-0 victory over Arsenal last month. The selfless nature of Hazard's play would be exciting for Morata who has struggled to be the central goal-scoring figure in his previous clubs. The striker had to settle for a bit-part role at Real Madrid but his knack for finding the back of the net earned him a move to Chelsea. Departing Diego Costa can attest to how much he benefitted from the Belgian superstar who created chances for the striker.
While Costa picked up over 30 bookings in his time with Chelsea, he was sent off only once, and the Stoke boss believes that talent was part of the entertainment factor he brought to the Premier League.
Elsewhere, Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace have a daunting trip to Manchester City and Arsenal host West Brom on Monday evening. There can be no worse time for Roy Hogdson (two games into the job) to face the joint most prolific attack in the League.
English soccer club Manchester United said it was likely to maintain revenue around last year's record level in 2017-18 as it returns to the lucrative European Champions League.
"They have been the most entertaining side going forward in the league", he said.
Only Manchester City have been able to match United's goal blitz, with Pep Guardiola's side sitting above Mourinho's men on alphabetical order after compiling an identical record.
