Manchester United vs. Stoke City: Lineups

Michael Regan

Manchester United boss David Moyes rotates his squad as his side take on Stoke City at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have rested several players after their midweek victory over Real Sociedad as they face Stoke City at home.

Robin van Persie returns to the lineup for the hosts, but Rafael, Marouane Fellaini and Adnan Januzaj are all given places on the bench only. Chris Smalling comes in at right-back, with Tom Cleverley in midfield and Shinji Kagawa and Nani starting on the flanks. Phil Jones continues to partner Jonny Evans at centre-back.

Stoke, meanwhile, line up with Wilson Palacios and Steven Nzonzi in an energetic-looking midfield, with Peter Crouch up front supported by Jonathan Walters and Marko Arnautovic.

Manchester United starting lineup: David De Gea; Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra; Nani, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa; Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie.

Stoke City starting lineup: Asmir Begovic; Geoff Cameron, Ryan Shawcross (c), Robert Huth, Erik Pieters; Jonathan Walters, Wilson Palacios, Stephen Ireland, Steven Nzonzi, Marko Arnautovic; Peter Crouch.
