Manchester United travel to Stoke in hope for the fifth successive Premier League wins. Champions are looking to continue their winning form at Britannia Stadium with Sir Alex Ferguson sets to bring back his top starts after resting them against Wolves in the Carling Cup.
United will need to concentrate as The Potters have a good home record taking 35 points from a possible 57 and losing just four times. Although he did two mistakes during last leaguer game against City, Ben Foster sets to return to the squad. Sir Alex Ferguson believes Foster is the goalkeeper for the future and it is a matter of time to prove his ability.
Tony Pulis’s side haven’t beat Man United, both side only played twice and that was last season. Man United won both games.
Stoke will miss Ricardo Fuller. Man United are still waiting for Edwin Van der Sar, Rafael, Owen Hargreaves and Obertan who is yet to play his first game for United.
Manchester United (from): Foster, Kuszczak, Neville, O’Shea, Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Fabio, Valencia, Anderson, Carrick, Fletcher, Gibson, Giggs, Nani, Rooney, Berbatov, Owen.
