Stoke come into this game after a 1-0 away defeat to Sunderland in their last league fixture. Adam Johnson's first half goal was the difference between the two sides.

The Premier League champions enter this fixture after a 2-0 midweek victory over Cardiff City at Old Trafford. Robin van Persie returned to action after being on the sidelines for over close to two months and it took the Dutchman six minutes to get his name on the score sheet.

United's club-record signing Juan Mata registered his first assist on his debut and Ashley Young doubled the lead in the second half.

The English champions are seventh in the league table with 40 points from 23 games while Stoke are 16th with 22 points, three points ahead of 18th place West Ham United

What Managers Say

Mark Bowen (Asst Manager): "Whenever you play Manchester United it's difficult but with Mata, van Persie and Rooney coming back into the fold we've had a few sleepless nights this week. But that's why we're in the game; Premier League games at home to Manchester United get the juices flowing for everybody."

David Moyes: "We need to give Juan Mata time to settle in and not get too far ahead of ourselves too quickly. The one good thing is that because he has Premier League experience and being in the league and being at a big club, coming here should be a little easier."
