Manchester United will be looking to continue their recent revival with a win over Stoke City, who have lost all of their six Premier League visits to Old Trafford.
The home side have now won three matches in succession, and the performance against Hull City on Saturday was clearly their best of the campaign as Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie both hit the net with long-range strikes to secure a comfortable 3-0 victory.
Louis van Gaal looks to be beginning to get the best out of the squad, and he now has key players coming back to fitness, with Radamel Falcao back available as well as a clutch of defenders, bolstering a backline which has taken an unfamiliar look in recent weeks.
There was disappointment for Stoke at the weekend as they were edged out by Liverpool, but had their fair share of chances to come away with something, and summer signing Bojan Krkic showed more glimpses of quality to almost rescue the game.
This represents another tricky game for the Potters, who have arguably the most difficult side to predict in the Premier League this season, but they have shown that they can create chances. The next step will be to take more of them.
Angel Di Maria picked up a knock against Hull and so will miss this game for United, while Daley Blind and Luke Shaw are also out.
Stoke are unable to call upon Robert Huth, Victor Moses, Peter Odemwingie, Steve Sidwell and Glenn Whelan because of injury.
