Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has made four changes for his side's trip to Stoke City this afternoon as he looks to extend the club's unbeaten run to 17 games in all competitions.
Anthony Martial misses out on the matchday squad as Paul Pogba joins Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the front line, while Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini earns recalls in the middle of the park alongside Ander Herrera.
There are two changes in the back four as Chris Smalling comes in for Marcos Rojo, who misses out through illness, and Daley Blind is preferred to Matteo Darmian.
Michael Carrick is named among the substitutes, as are Marcus Rashford and Wayne Rooney, who is looking to become United's all-time leading goalscorer this afternoon.
Mark Hughes, meanwhile, keeps faith with the starting XI that delivered a 3-1 win away at relegation-threatened Sunderland last weekend.
That means that Peter Crouch will continue to lead the line for the Potters as he closes in on his 100th Premier League goal, with attacking support from Joe Allen and Marko Arnautovic.
Bojan Krkic, who has been linked with a move away from the Britannia this month, is named among the substitutes after missing the trip to the Black Cats with a rib injury.
